The highly anticipated trailer of Karan Johar's film Student of The Year 2 has finally released today, much to the delight of the audience. While the trailer was a joyride for people, who might have encountered a bit of a nostalgia seeing the three students -- Tiger Shroff, and debutantes Tara Sutaria and Ananya Panday -- it did not go amiss that the makers deftly chose to avoid any footage that might show the much-hyped cameo of Hollywood star Will Smith.

Speaking at the trailer launch event, producer Karan was confronted with the question about Smith featuring in the film. Karan clearly stated that Smith was in India to shoot for a special episode for his show Bucket list and that his association with SOTY 2 could be a possibility. However, the filmmaker did not confirm it outright.
He said, "Will Smith was here to shoot for his Bucket List programme. Ironically we were shooting for SOTY 2 then. And I have known Will for some time and hence we were thrilled to have him but if he is there in the movie or not, you'll have to wait and watch."
On the other hand, there is also speculation that the original cast of Student of The Year (2012), Alia Bhatt, Sidharth Malhotra, Rishi Kapoor and Varun Dhawan will also feature in the film at some point. Going by Karan's statement, the audience will have to wait till May 10 to get answers to these cameo questions.
Directed by Punit Malhotra, Student of The Year 2 will debut in theatres on May 10.
