In 2012, Karan Johar introduced the terrific trio of Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan, and Siddharth Malhotra to the world with Student of the Year. Seven years later, another set of star kids—Tara Sutaria and Ananya Panday—tasted success with Student of the Year 2. Cut to 2023, KJo is all set to launch another new talent with the franchise; Shanaya Kapoor will be the lead in Student of the Year 3

While the plot and other details about the upcoming movie are being kept under wraps, certain reports suggest the project is currently at the pre-production and writing stage. The shooting is expected to start at the end of the year and will be handled by Dharma's digital content vertical, Dharmatic Entertainment.

Earlier, the star kid (Sanjay and Maheep Kapoor's daughter) was set to make her debut with Dharma Productions' Bedhadak, along with Laksh Lalwani and Gurfateh Pirzada, but the movie was eventually shelved due to script issues.

Student of the Year 3 will mark Kapoor's debut in the OTT space; she will make her acting debut with the pan-India film Vrushabha alongside superstar, Mohanlal. The pan-India film will be directed by Nanda Kishore and will also star Roshan Meka and Zahrah S Khan.
