After The Breakup Song broke music charts a couple of years ago, it’s time for “hookup”. The HookUp Song is part of Punit Malhotra’s upcoming directorial Student of the Year 2.

In the Tara Sutaria, Tiger Shroff and Ananya Panday starrer, Alia Bhatt, who had made her debut with Student of the Year, will be returning to its sequel SOTY2.

The special song will see both Alia Bhatt and Tiger Shroff grooving to the track. While the HookUp song will be released on Tuesday, the film and the song have already created a buzz on social media.

It all began with Alia posting a message on Twitter, “See you Tuesday @tigerjackieshroff!💥 #HookUpSong”.

Fans picked up the hint and began retweeting the message along with a photo shared by the actor.

Dharma Productions, which is producing the film, also shared a look from the song starring Tiger Shroff; later sharing messages to create more excitement among the audience.

“Make way for the return of the student in style! Stay tuned!♥️ @aliaa08 #HookUpSong ” read one.

Karan Johar, who is producing SOTY2, also shared a picture of Alia with the caption, “THE RETURN OF THE STUDENT! Things are about to heat up!🔥 @aliaa08 #HookUpSong”


Tiger Shroff, who plays the lead in the film, is caught up in a typical love triangle involving two young women played by Tara Sutaria and Ananya Panday.

He shared a screenshot of a WhatsApp chat between himself and Bhatt.
The chat apart from other things read, “… And the burning question-how do I know it’s you.” And Alia’s answer, ” True. [email protected]”.


Choreographed by Farah Khan, the HookUp song has been shot in Mumbai’s Mehboob Studio. In an interaction with the media earlier, director Punit Malhotra had said the song was a “trump card” and that the team wanted to save it for the end.

Student of the Year 2 is slated to release this Mothers Day, on 10 May.
