Looks like the fascination of Karan Johar for larger-than-life stories is extending to the digital medium as well. The filmmaker is now smitten by the universe of Student of the Year, a film that he had directed and also launched current-gen stars like Varun Dhawan, Alia Bhatt and Siddharth Malhotra.
Even as the sequel to the film ended up biting the dust at the theatres, the man behind Dharma Productions is keen on making a web series based on its characters and tropes. As expected, the series will go on floors through Dharma’s digital content wing Dharmatic Entertainment.
The rumour mills are buzzing with news that Karan is willing to spearhead the making of the series that he has high hopes on. Even otherwise, content like SOTY is ideal for the digital medium, given its simplistic premise and a few colourful characters that deserve more elaboration. It’ll be interesting to see who directs and stars in the series.
