Saif Ali Khan and his first wife Amrita Singh’s daughter Sara Ali Khan have replaced Disha Patani in ‘Student of the Year 2’ opposite Tiger Shroff.
Earlier, there were reports which claimed that Disha Patani, the alleged girlfriend of Tiger Shroff, had been roped in for the Punit Malhotra directorial ‘Student of the Year 2’. However, the current report suggests that Disha Patani has been replaced with Sara Ali Khan.
As per a report published by DNA, an insider from the B-Town was quoted saying, “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. This is another case of an outsider losing to a star kid. KJo was always planning to launch Sara, but her name was mentioned in connection to the remake of ‘The Fault In Our Stars’ with Shahid Kapoor’s brother Ishaan Khattar. But that didn’t work out. Karan is very secretive about his films and he likes to announce them himself. They are holding this bit of news close to their heart because they were not happy with the news of Disha being cast, coming out.”
Earlier, Disha Patani, who shot to fame with ‘MS Dhoni: The Untold Story’, was replaced with Shraddha Kapoor in ‘Baaghi’ opposite her rumoured beau Tiger Shroff.
However, an official confirmation is yet to come.
