Filmmaker-host
Karan
Johar
in
his
latest
episode
of
Koffee
With
Karan
featuring
Vicky
Kaushal
and
Sidharth
Malhotra,
revisited
his
2012
film

Student
Of
The
Year.

The
campus
romance
marked
the
Bollywood
debut
of
Sidharth
Malhotra,
Varun
Dhawan
and
Alia
Bhatt.

Karan
who
helmed
this
movie,
admitted
that
he
was
going
through
self-doubt
just
days
before
the
film
went
on
floors.
While
discussing
a
‘thirsty’
scene
featuring
Sidharth
drenched
in
water,
Karan
asked
him
what
else
he
expected
from
the
film.

The
filmmaker
said,
“What
did
you
think

Student
of
the
Year

was
about?
The
screenplay?
There
was
no
scene
and
no
scope
for
performance.
None
of
them
won
any
debut
award.
Ayushmann
Khurrana
won
every
debut
award.”

When
Sidharth
mentioned
that
Karan
brought
depth
to
the
character,
the
director
laughed
off
and
said
that
he
had
to
come
down
to
the
brass
tacks
for
Student
Of
The
Year
.
KJo
recalled
his
conversation
with
Abhishek
Varman
who
was
a
creative
director
on
that
film
and
revealed
that
he
had
second
thoughts
about
the
film
before
they
started
shooting
for
it.

Hearing
this,
Sidharth
interjected
and
told
Karan
that
he
was
‘undervaluing’
his
work
and
talked
about
all
the
good
bits
from
the
film.
To
this,
the
latter
revealed
that
the
film
that
was
eventually
made
was
very
different
from
what
they
had
written.

“I
don’t
know
what
I
was
doing.
I
think
I
was
drunk
or
something.
I
started
shooting
this
film
and
I
was
like,
‘Why
is
this
script
so
bad?’,” the
filmmaker
said
on
the
show.
However,
he
accepted
that
at
the
end,

Student
Of
The
Year

turned
out
a
‘fun
and
entertaining
watch’.

Further,
the
show’s
host
also
opened
up
on
a
scene
featuring
Sidharth
Malhotra’s
character
Abhimanyu
which
never
made
it
to
the
film.
KJo
said
that
he
wanted
to
justify
why
Sidharth’s
character
wore
trendy
clothes
despite
being
a
middle-class
boy.

The
filmmaker
said
that
at
one
point,
he
thought
of
a
scene
where
he
would
show
Sidharth’s
character
selling
all
his
medals
and
using
the
money
to
funding
his
wardrobe.
However,
he
brushed
off
that
idea
because
he
realised
that
school
medals
are
never
made
of
real
gold
and
silver.
