Jibraan Khan made his debut as a child artist in the classic ‘Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham’ where he acted alongside Amitabh Bachchan, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Shah Rukh Khan, Kajol and Hrithik Roshan. He was praised for his performance and went on to beg several other roles in the industry. However, he later disappeared from the screens and has now made his comeback with the recently released ‘Ishq Vishk Rebound’. As the actor has been promoting the film, he was asked about his journey of finding the perfect role to make his comeback with during which he mentioned of giving auditions for ‘SOTY 2’ but getting rejected for being too young.

It was assumed that the actor referred to Tiger Shroff’s role in the film however in a recent interview he confirmed that he didn’t mean the part of Tiger at all and it was misunderstood during the interview. He further added that it was probably for the part portrayed by Aditya Seal that he was auditioning for.

He said, “It was one of the auditions that did happen, and somebody asked (is it) Student Of The Year? And I said yeah, one of them. But I was never
going for Tiger’s part in that, and I don’t know why people are saying that.”

He then mentioned, “I never meant it that way. I was never auditioning for his role. It was always Tiger Shroff’s film. I think it was for (actor) Aditya Seal’s role and rightly so, I used to look younger than them three-four years ago.”

The actor concluded, “What I faced was that I looked very kiddish, which was not working a few years ago and now suddenly there is a demand for looking young again. If you see my Instagram from a few years ago, I have a beard in every picture because that was the demand, I had to look older because somewhere people wanted me to be in the (actor) Varun Dhawan league. But suddenly there is this whole vibe now where they want you to look younger. So, I am now constantly in the middle of that. I don’t know where I stand now.”

‘Student of the Year 2’ released in 2019 starring Tiger, Ananya Panday, Tara Sutaria and Aditya.
