Mumbai: Actor Tiger Shroff on Friday said his upcoming film "Student of the Year 2" is a completely different movie but it has retained the essence of its 2012 predecessor. The 2012 hit, directed by Karan Johar, marked the Bollywood debut of Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan and Siddharth Malhotra. "Student of the Year 2", directed by Punit Malhotra, features Tiger opposite two newcomers -- Ananya Pandey, daughter of Chunkey Pandey and Tara Sutaria. The film has been produced by Karan through his banner Dharma Productions.

"I don't want to compare (the two films). We have made a different film altogether. There will be flavours of 'Student of the Year'... I have done my best. The sports are different, we are introducing Kabbadi for the first time," Tiger told reporters here at the trailer launch of the film.

Punit, who previously directed romantic comedies "I Hate Luv Storys" and "Gori Tere Pyaar Mein", said he was initially nervous when he started working on the project.

"I'm too excited because the film has turned out well. I hope the film will do well. I was very nervous when we started. I was working with Tiger for the first time and I felt he will punch me as 'Baaghi' had just released," he said.
