Popular actor, Samir Soni has been confirmed to play a pivotal role in ‘Student Of The Year 2’.
The actor will be seen playing a college principal, the role previously essayed by Rishi Kapoor in the first installment.
Talking to DNA India, Soni said, “SOTY 2 is a fresh story, only the franchise is being carried forward. Rishi is the finest actor we have. He did a fabulous job in the first part and people remember him. I am nervous and excited to step into his shoes, although it’s not the same character. I’m looking forward to the challenge.”
Asked if Soni’s character will be gay as Kapoor’s was, he said, “No, he is not gay, but he has his own quirks. He is not the normal, boring principal. He will make you laugh and smile. It’s a film about students, so there will be a fun element.”
The film, which stars Tiger Shroff, goes on the floors in mid-April.
