In 2012, it was the rise of three stars Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan and Sidharth Malhotra with Karan Johar’s directorial Student of The Year. The trio couldn’t have asked for a better debut than SOTY! After the film released on October 19, 2012, Alia-Varun-Sidharth became the talk of the town and the poster stars of several brands. Student Of The Year was a film about friendship, love and competition told through the story of three college friends.

Sharing a video on Instagram with snippets of the film, Karan wrote, "October is just filled with gifts that keep giving - and #SOTY is one such! Not only does it continue to give everyone many tunes to break out in a dance or hum along, style that is timeless and for me, many many memories! But the ultimate gifts have been these three students, now superstars who keep on giving their absolute best to the field of cinema! Couldn't be prouder and here's to the film that started it all! #9YearsOfSOTY
