It was a great success at the box office and the viewers appreciated the effort of the new comers and the commendable direction.

The 42 year old director, Karan, shared a poster of the movie on Twitter to celebrate and cherish the movie that marked its two years. The film also casted Ronit Roy, Rishi Kapoor, Sana Saeed, Farida Jalal and Ram Kapoor. The guest appearances witnessed in the film are that of Kajol, Farah Khan, Boman Irani and Vaibhavi Merchant.

Karan embarked on his film career with the movie ‘Kuch Kuch Hota Hai’ that fetched him the limelight. It did set a milestone for Shahrukh Khan and Kajol as well. The director holds the movie very close to his heart. ‘Student of the Year’ acts like a De Ja Vu of KKHT. As the same thing happened after more than a decade. He launched the actors and Alia who are much sought-after and are basking in the glory of stardom, post the movie’s hit. Like Kajol, who is a bosom friend to Karan, Alia also claims to count on Karan more than her father when it comes to taking any major decision

Karan Johar jubilantly celebrates the completion of two years of his romantic comedy through his tweets. The movie that was a zestful and breezy triangular love story, made a spectacular mark at the box office. The movie rolls around the three contesting students who want to outshine each other for the title of the college ‘Student of the Year’. It was a commercially as well as critically acclaimed film. And it was the best break for the debutants. The blockbuster cinema fetched 35 crores in just five days. It is a huge amount for a flick starring debutants. Hence, Karan was like a magician for the newcomers, who gifted them a significant launch pad.

Karan looks back into the memory lane of making of ‘Student of the Year’ and is brimmed with pride.
