Tara Sutaria is set to make her huge Bollywood debut with ‘Student Of The Year 2’ releasing later this month. However, not many would know that she was actually the first choice for the Will Smith Disney flick ‘Aladdin’.

Sutaria confirmed that she was offered the role of Jasmine in the film. Sutaria has been closely linked to Disney projects for her television work on Disney India. Eventually, the role was given to Naomi Scott.

Ironically, Smith will be seen in a cameo in ‘Student Of The Year 2’. Talking about it, Sutaria told a leading publication, “I was actually supposed to do another film with Will Smith a year before we started Student of the Year 2 in London. I was working on this film Aladdin, which is, in fact, releasing a week after SOTY. So, I was meant to play Jasmine in that film. We would have worked together on that film and it is so ironic that I didn’t end up doing that film but I am doing this and he actually came here and we ended up working on this.”

‘Student Of The Year 2’ releases on 10th May 2019.
