It’s a known fact that Karan Johar always prefers Shah Rukh Khan over any other star in Bollywood. So, it dint come as surprise when Karan Johar penned a character in his upcoming movie ‘Student of the Year’ with Shah Rukh Khan in his mind.
But Shah Rukh Khan dint think that he would suit the role of a dean that Karan Johar has written exclusively for him. After meeting each other both came to a conclusion that Shah Rukh Khan was right and have decided to cast Rishi Kapoor in the role.
If you thought Shah Rukh Khan is out of the movie, then you are wrong. Shah Rukh has decided to co-produce the movie along with Karan Johar.
Few sources though have said the reason for SRK opting out of the character is due to the slight resemblance of the character with that of Amitabh Bachchan’s in movie ‘Mohabbatein’.
When asked Karan Johar if Shah Rukh Khan will be doing a cameo in the movie he replied, “He's the co-producer. What more luck could I hope for? But no, he won't be in the film. Let me tell you though that Rishi Kapoor has the most important role in Student Of The Year. Chintu Uncle is doing two films for Dharma - Agneepath and Student Of The Year."
The movie will also star the new comers David Dhawan's son Varun Dhawan, Mahesh Bhatt-Soni Razdan's daughter Aliya Bhatt and Siddharth Malhotra.
