Priyank Sharma's fans were upset and suggested that the Bigg Boss alumnus would have been better choice than Tiger Shroff. A section of Twitter still thinks that Priyank may appear in a supporting role or even as the antagonist in the Punit Malhotra-directed film.Fans were hopeful also because Priyank Sharma had networked his way into a Bollywood party (hosted by Shah Rukh Khan). He was Neha Dhupia's plus one to Kaajal Anand's birthday party where he met Karan Johar.
Apart from Priyank, Twitter hoped that India's Next Superstars winners Aman Gandotra and Natasha Bharadwaj would be included in the star cast. The winners of the reality show were promised film with Karan Johar and Rohit Shetty but apparently it won't be Student Of The Year. Rohit and Karan have collaborated on Simmba but Ranveer Singh and Sara Ali Khan have already been announced as the film's lead cast. Maybe, Aman and Natasha will get a role in it? Priyank was last seen in television series Swisswale Dulhaniya Le Jaenge, co-starring Tejasswi Prakash.
