Student of the Year 2 will launch Saif ‘s daughter Sara Ali Khan and Shahid’s brother Ishaan Khattar?

Instead of Student of The Year (SOTY) sequel, they should call this film Casting Coup of The Year. Karan Johar’s SOTY gave us three reigning Bollywood stars – Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan and Sidharth Malhotra. And if buzz is to be believed, the film’s sequel will launch Saif Ali Khan and Amrita Singh’s daughter Sara Ali Khan and Shahid Kapoor’s half brother Ishaan Khattar.

Instead, the focus has shifted to Sara and Ishaan. While Karan Johar has not commented on the star cast yet, he had recently announced that a SOTY sequel is in the works. Report in a daily insists that the youngsters will be groomed for their Bollywood debut by Johar himself.

Saif is married to Bollywood star Kareena Kapoor, Shahid’s ex-girlfriend. Shahid and Kareena are working together in the upcoming Udta Punjab.
