Karan Johar's latest offering "Student of the Year" has made a good opening both at domestic and overseas box office, despite not big stars in it.
"Student of the Year", which the screens on Friday, reportedly registered 100% occupancy in both multiplexes and single screen theatres across the country on the opening day.
"#SOTY morning shows are terrific... Great start," tweeted Bollywood trade analyst Taran Adarsh, adding, "SOTY embarks on a terrific start in Overseas too. Purely on the strength of KJo and Dharma, collects AED 350,000 in UAE on Thu. Super!"
Taran Adarsh is of the opinion that "Student of the Year" will become a big hit. "Looking at the fabulous start of #SOTY, it should be renamed 'Surprise Of The Year'. Biggest start ever for a film starring newcomers!" he tweeted.
Directed by Karan Johar and produced by Dharma Productions and Red Chillies Entertainment, "Student of the Year" features newcomers Siddharth Malhotra, Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan in the lead roles and special appearance from Boman Irani, Kajol and Farah Khan.
It is a romantic comedy film revolving around three youngsters - two boys and a girl from different family backgrounds - turning friends. Both the boys admire the girl but only one gets her love. And all hell breaks loose during the Student of the Year competition of their college.
"Student of the Year" is Karan Johar's fifth film as a director. He has earlier directed "Kuch Kuch Hota Hai", "Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham", "Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna" and "My Name Is Khan", which are big hits.
