'Student of the Year 2' is the sequel to the 2012 hit 'Student of The Year,' which marked the Bollywood debut of Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan, and Sidharth Malhotra.

Apart from 'Shershaah', Kiara Advani will be seen in her upcoming flick 'Good News' starring Kareena Kapoor Khan, Akshay Kumar and Diljit Dosanjh. The film will release on December 27.
