No one can imagine Karan Johar directing a movie, which does not have his close buddy Shah Rukh Khan in it. So, when he released the first look of his next film Student of the Year, everyone raised eyebrows as it does not show the credit of SRK.
Starting from Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, which was Karan’s directorial debut, King Khan was part of all his directorial projects, the latest being My Name Is Khan. So, Karan cannot give a miss to his buddy in his upcoming movie too that has some newcomers in main roles.
The first look showed the new faces Aaliya Bhatt, Varun Dhawan and Siddharth Malhotra. Everyone was taken aback by the absence of SRK. However, the latest reports suggest that Shah Rukh will be definitely part of the project and he will turn professor for this movie. He has done it in 2000 for the movie Mohabbatein. Now, after more than 10 years, SRK will be seen in the same avatar of a professor, who is loved by his students.
However, Karan is working hard on SRK’s role to make it look quite different and powerful. He does not want SRK fans to get the old wine in a new bottle. Apart from appearing in this film, SRK is also co-producing the movie. We hope he does not have only a special appearance and is seen in a major role.
