Disha Patani was earlier reported to play lead role opposite her boyfriend tiger Shroff in the second part of Student of The Year directed by Punit Malhotra.
But now it has been confirmed that Sara Ali Khan, daughter of Saif Ali Khan will play the role that was earlier supposed to be played by Disha. This would be Sara Ali Khan’s debut film.
According to sources, "Disha was finalised as Tiger was keen to have her in the film. It would mean that this off-screen pair would finally woo each other on-screen and that's also interesting for the audience. Producer Karan Johar and director Punit agreed to Disha, as she has a pleasing personality and is confident on screen, as seen in her last release MS Dhoni: The Untold Story and Kung Fu Yoga with Jackie Chan. But for reasons best known to the makers, Disha has made way for Sara."
Sara Ali Khan’s name was attached to the remake of The Fault In Our Stars. The film will also star Ishan Khattar, Shahid Kapoor’s brother.
Disha had earlier also lost a film to another actor. Disha lost the opportunity to act in Baaghi to Shraddha Kapoor.
