Student Of the Year 2 has been making headlines ever since its trailer came out. While many people have given it a warm welcome, some fans were quick to criticize the lavish portrayal of student life in the movie. From the larger-than-life school to the grand dance numbers to the love triangle between Tiger Shroff, Ananya Panday and Tara Sutaria, the movie has been deemed unrealistic and stylised portrayal of student life.

However, Aditya Seal, who plays the antagonist in the movie has slammed the naysayers. The 31-year-old actor came out to defend SOTY 2 makers by saying “Haters will be haters but they will still come and watch it.” Speaking in an interview recently, Aditya opened up on the issue. Addressing the criticism aimed at the film he said, “That is exactly the section of society who will watch Avengers and love it and believe that superheroes exist, but they will give us flak for it!”
Aditya further added, “This is a fantasy. Who wouldn’t want to be a part of a school like this, where you have such amazing looking people and the school is this good? We are just trying to create a world for people where they can just watch it and be like, ‘Oh, I wish I was a part of this!’ When I watch the Avengers, I want to be a part of it. I want to be Tony Stark/Iron Man. The same way, we are trying to create a world for them”
Aditya Kaul of #SOTY2 said that Indians love unrealistic things in Avengers Endgame but troll SOTY for unrealistic portrayal of student life.
