Tara Sutaria is KJo's new student Image: Facebook
When you are debuting with a Karan Johar movie, you know all eyes will be on you. You will get an intro song in the film that will describe your character (or at least present you in an ultra glam way), you will definitely become a social media star, and you will probably be talked about non-stop in the media.
Right now, Karan Johar's second student aka Tara Sutaria is smiling ear-to-ear, enjoying her moment in the spotlight, after the official cast of Student of the Year 2 was announced yesterday. Foraying into Bollywood alongside Ananya Pandey (another debutante) and Tiger Shroff, 22-year-old Tara is the talking point on the inter-web.
She's the only one of the three who's not a star kid, someone whom we haven't heard of before. People are going, "Kaun hai woh? Who's that gal?" #KjoMovieStyle.
...And suddenly you know it’s time to start something new and trust the magic of new beginnings! Firsts are always special, especially when you’re blessed enough to be a part of the Dharma family.
