Bollywood director Karan Johar announced a sequel to his hit 2012 film, Student of the Year, on Monday morning. What’s more? He also revealed that actor Tiger Shroff has been cast for the film. But he sure did not expect the trouble that would ensue.
SOTY, the original, launched the careers of Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan and Sidharth Malhotra, who are all superstars now. However, the fans are disappointed how a known face, Tiger, and not a newcomer has been chosen for the sequel. Here’s all their fury on Twitter.
There is no SOTY without the trio!!! https://t.co/8YPsSvmUlG— Khatija (@halalzarrry) August 15, 2016

SOTY kaun si mahaan film thi aur uske actors kaun se Dilip Kumar the :P

A lot of fans are also unhappy that the movie will not have the star cast of the first movie.
I swear @karanjohar you said there are gonna be new actors in soty2, where are they? I'm so disappointed you ruined soty for me— Shraddha Kapoor ♡ (@Shanayaax) August 15, 2016
@karanjohar we want Varun, Sid and Alia in SOTY 2 or no SOTY 2 at all.— bhakti (@bhakti_dvn1d) August 15, 2016
Nothing wrong with tiger. But he doesn't fit the role for SOTY 2. No one does except the trio. Period. https://t.co/F00FSXBoOt— :/ (@muslimah_xoxo) August 15, 2016
And some more disappointment in general...

All this within 60 minutes of the announcement. Sigh! By the looks of it, this project may give a tough competition to the Ghostbusters reboot as far as receiving hate is concerned.
Karan, Alia, Varun and Sidharth are all currently on their Dream Team tour of the US.
