Why did Dhadak fame Ishaan back off from Karan Johar's SOTY 2?

by Vibhuti Gupta, Friday, July 27, 2018

Ishaan Khatter has proved his talent with Majid Majidi's Beyond The Clouds and Shashank Khaitan's Dhadak, which also marked his Bollywood debut along with Janhvi Kapoor. So as per the ritual, every Bollywood star has their own share of controversy and looks like; Ishaan got served with his first!

Dhadak is set to cross the Rs. 50 crore mark on the BO!

According to reports, Ishaan Khatter was veteran filmmaker Karan Johar's first choice for the sequel of Student of the Year. He even shot a few sequences but then decided to quit, after all. But wait, what happened?

Student of the Year 2 features Tiger Shroff along with debutants Tara Sutaria and Ananya Panday. However, if sources are to be believed,  the presence of Tara in the film, cost Ishaan his film.

Ishaan and Tara were apparently in a relationship earlier and their ugly fall out is a major reason for Ishaan's walk out. "The things ended on a sour note between them and they are not even on talking terms since the ugly break up," revealed a source.

All said and one! Tara Sutaria who is excited about her big Bollywood break is going strong with veteran actor Vinod Mehta's son Rohan and keeps on updating her social media profile with the cute photos.

Shutting all these rumors, KJO tweeted in November 2017, "CLARIFICATION: Ishaan is the lead of #Dhadak directed by @ShashankKhaitan and Tiger Shroff is the Lead of #StudentOfTheYear2 directed by @punitdmalhotra ...all other cross stories floating around are baseless and untrue...."

The reports further added that when it came to Karan Johar to choose between Tara and Ishaan for the cast. KJo decided to drop out Ishaan Khatter (who by that time already shot for a couple of sequences) and keep his leading lady Tara Sutaria for the role.

As for Ishaan Khatter, he is said to be seeing his co-star and the daughter of veteran Bollywood producer Boney Kapoor, Janhvi Kapoor!
