Trailer of ‘Student of the year’ to be released on August 2

Year 2012 seems to be a treat for the Hindi movie-loving populace.  ‘Kahani’, ‘Hosefull2’, ‘Rowdy Rathore’, ‘Vicky Donor’ , ‘Ek mai aur Ek Tu’, ‘Bol Bachchan’, ‘Cocktail’; it seems already too much . Well the party is not over yet.  KJo’s (Karan Johar) latest movie ‘Student of the Year ’ is set to be released on 19th October 2012.

It has been a while since Karan has called the shots behind the camera. So it will be interesting to watch out for this movie which promises a lot. It is a joint venture of Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions and Shah Rukh’s Red Chilles Entertainment, two of the biggest banners of Indian Cinema. This is the first movie where SRK hasn’t been cast by KJo , though he makes a guest appearance along with Kajol .

The cast of the movie has some interesting names. It marks the debut of Alia Bhatt, younger daughter of filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt; Varun Dhawan , son of director David Dhawan  and Kayoze Irani, son of actor Boman Irani and newcomer Siddharth Malhotra . Rishi Kapoor plays a gay as Dean Yoginder Vasisht, which will be a funny bone tickling performance. The other significant names  included in the cast are Sana Sayeed , Ronit Roy, Kitu Gidwani, Ram Kapoor and Gautami Gadgil Kapoor .The music for the movie has been composed by Vishal-Shekhar.

The movie went on the floors on 16th August 2011, with the Mahurat function being attended by socialite Parameshwar Godrej. The movie has been shot in Kasiga School (Dehradun), the name of which has been changed to St. Teresa. Apart from that the other shooting places include Shimla, Kashmir and Thailand.

There were some freak incidents while shooting for the film. Boman Irani fainted while shooting in Thailand due to the extreme heat. Later he tweeted he was okay. Also Varun Dhawan got injured on the on the sets. He was rushed to the hospital but within a few weeks he resumed shooting with a fractured forehead. 

The posters of the movie were first released in Jan by Karan. The youthful, energetic feel from them seems to create a déjà vu feel of the ‘Kuch Kuch Hota Hai’ movie. We wish Karan and ShahRukh lot of success with this movie.
