It was considered that Shanaya will be launched in third instalment of Student of the Year 3. But it seems Shanaya wouldn’t be debuting in Student Of The Year 3, the source added, “Shanaya was indeed being considered along with Alaya F for SOTY 3. But Maheep and KJo discussed it and they didn’t want her first film to not have a theatrical release. As for now, it’s not known if Shanaya will still do SOTY 3 but that definitely won’t be her big debut. The rom com with Lakshya and Gurfateh will be a theatrical release and will introduce her into the movies.”
