On her wish list for directors, she was quoted as saying: “Karan Johar, for his direction. Zoya Akhtar because everything she does is just perfect. I watch Luck By Chance every month! Sanjay Leela Bhansali, he is a magician. Devdas makes me cry.” And her favourite film had to be one of the following: Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham and Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani. However, the TV shows she would love to binge watch include names like Sex And The City, Gossip Girl, Pretty Little Liars, 13 Reasons Why, You, Riverdale and the previous season of This Is Us.
As her favourite actors she picked Alia Bhatt, Kareena Kapoor and Varun Dhawan. She said: “Alia Bhatt and Kareena Kapoor Khan. I am obsessed with both of them. Even Varun Dhawan! His energy…and he is so cute. He knows I am in love with him and it’s a bit awkward.”
Student of the Year 2, directed by Puneet Malhotra, will hit the screens in May. Its trailer and songs have already created a buzz around the film. However, at the time of the launch of its trailer, Twitter was amused at the larger-than-life college campus shown in the film.
