Student of the Year 2 released yesterday and received mixed reviews from the audience. The trio of Tiger Shroff, Ananya Panday and Tara Sutaria made full efforts in promoting their huge release. Ananya and Tara are making their debut in the film industry with this film. SOTY 2 is a sequel of the 2012 release 'Student of the Year' featuring Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan and Siddharth Malhotra. The second part also has a special song 'The Hookup Song' starring Alia and Tiger. Moreover, Hollywood fame Will Smith also made a special appearance in the movie in a song.
 
When asked about his experience on directing Will's cameo in SOTY 2, Punit said, “I never imagined that I would direct Will Smith. If one day, someone tells you that you are going to wake up and direct Will Smith, I would say, ‘kya bol rahe ho yaar?’ Because how is that even possible? It was fun to direct Will Smith. He came here to do his Bucket List show actually, but it was very gracious of him to do a bit for us. I didn’t think I was going to be able to do it. When we were shooting, I said, ‘stop stop stop’ and ran up to him. There was this tall guy looking at me, and I was telling him what to do.”
 
He further added, “After the shot happened, Tiger walked up to me and said, ‘You know what you just did, right?’. I said, ‘What?’ and he is like ‘You just told Will Smith what to do!’ It was quite funny. Because he (Will Smith) was like ‘How do I behave?’ And I told him, ‘Just be a star, act like a star!’ After this, Tiger has been pulling my leg that I told Will Smith to behave like a star. It was quite crazy.”
