Actor Tiger Shroff has revealed that Alia Bhatt will be a part of a special dance sequence in the upcoming film, Student of the Year 2. Tiger was addressing the media at the song launch event for Mumbai Dilli Di Kudiyaan on Wednesday.
He said, according to reports, that he had a ‘great time’ working with Alia. “Personally, I have never done a dance number like that. Working with Alia was an amazing experience. Though she is such a big star, she was open and cooperative on set while shooting the song,” Tiger said.
The actor, who will be seen in the lead role opposite newcomers Ananya Panday and Tara Sutaria, said that Alia ‘is better than me in this one’. Tiger was accompanied by director Punit Malhotra and co-stars Ananya and Tara at the event. Speaking about the song, Ananya said, “We did not try to match up with him (Tiger), though it is impossible. So, we tried to focus on moves, those ‘latkas’ and ‘jhatkas’.” Tara added: “We tried to complement each other which came across nicely in the song I guess.”
Like Tiger, Alia too is known for her dancing skills. She was especially appreciated in her recent release, Kalank. Alia had made her Bollywood debut with the first Student of the Year film, which also starred then-debutants Sidharth Malhotra and Varun Dhawan.
The first song from Student of the Year 2 - The Jawaani Song - was a remix in the vein of the original film’s The Disco Song. Mumbai Dilli Di Kudiyaan has been compared by Ananya to SOTY’s Radha Teri Chunari, which was picturised on Alia.
Student of the Year 2 is produced by Karan Johar, and will be released on May 10.
