Following that, Karan revealed that both the actors were sort of against her casting in the movie considering she was very young!Koffee With Karan 8: Karan Johar reveals Varun Dhawan and Sidharth Malhotra were against Alia Bhatt’s casting in Student of the Year: “One of you said she is too young”
“I still remember with Alia, the first time that she walked in, how both of you sent me messages saying you can’t cast her. One of you said she is too young. I am saying it started like this but when we shot with her, three months post that for a photo shoot, I remember she stood quiet and didn’t look at either of you. Either she was conscious or shy because you all already knew me. She didn’t know me at all. We did the photo shoot, and right after that, I mean, I knew at the first shot," Karan said. He also said that Varun would show pictures of other girls for the casting.
Karan Johar also said, “When I went to the van and told her that she was on, and said ‘I'm directing the film,’ she burst out crying and the first thing she said is ‘Can I eat a cupcake?’”
Sidharth then said, “Because you starved her.” Both Varun and Sid agreed that Karan made her starve. Sidharth joked, “You didn't want people to eat any food.” Varun said, “He was not letting us eat. He had very rationed food coming over. There were no carbs. I remember you (Sidharth) were so dehydrated twice.” Sidharth said, “It was child labour.”
Varun then said, “That was a different Karan Johar. He used to wear shorts and direct on the beach." The actors laughed and said, "He had more looks than us.”
The fifth episode of Koffee With Karan 8 is now streaming on Disney+ Hotstar.
