Karan Johar commemorated nine years of Student of the Year on Tuesday; the film had marked the start of Alia, Varun, and Siddharth’s careers in Hindi cinema.
“Superstars who continue to give their entire best to the industry of cinema,” the filmmaker said of the three. Alia Bhatt spoke with the filmmaker and her co-stars Varun Dhawan and Sidharth Malhotra to commemorate the occasion.
Alia posted a photo of herself and Karan Johar striking a pose for the camera on her Instagram account. Varun and Sidharth are in a video conversation, and both of them are seen holding up their phones.
Alia looked stunning in the photo, dressed in a white ensemble. Her kohled eyelids, black bindi, and earrings added to her gorgeous appearance. In his colourful shirt and fashionable shades, KJo, on the other hand, looked as stylish as ever.
With Karan Johar’s ‘Student Of The Year,’ Alia, Varun, and Sidharth made their big Bollywood debut. The trio has established themselves as one of the industry’s most skilled and sought-after actors. Sidharth Malhotra captioned the identical photo of himself and his co-stars on his Instagram story in the most beautiful way. He wrote, “The pupils and our mentor had a virtual reunion. SOTY has been around for 9 years.”
Sidharth Malhotra began his career as a trainee assistant director to Karan Johar for the 2010 film My Name Is Khan, after becoming dissatisfied with his modeling profession. His film Shershaah has become the most-watched film on Amazon Prime Video in India. Captain Vikram Batra, a Param Vir Chakra awardee, is played by Sidharth Malhotra in the film, which was released on August 12th.
Even before Student of the Year premiered, the trio had the country’s youth enamored with them, and all eyes were on them. Soon after the film’s release, all three of them became celebrities, and they went on their own paths to becoming well-known actors. It’s been 9 years since they debuted, and it’s incredibly inspiring to see how far they’ve come in that time.
When it comes to Alia Bhatt, she is one of the most talented actresses that Bollywood has ever produced. In 1999, she made her film debut as a child actor in a supporting part in her father’s thriller Sangharsh. Alia is the daughter of actor Soni Razdan and filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt. The actress has three siblings – Shaheen is her elder sister, while Pooja and Rahul Bhatt are her half-siblings.
