Recently the makers have unveiled the trailer of the film. The 3 minutes video went viral on the internet. But most of the netizens are lashing out on the makers. The trailer video has been receiving a negative response from the audience. The trailer is full of branded clothes, expensive cars and luxurious lives. Now, the netizens are taking a big dig at the producer of the film Karan Johar. Someone commented that Karan Johar's college will teach everything except for the studies and except for the topmost brands like Tommy Hilfiger, Louis Vuitton, Rolex, Ferrari etc, there is no place for cheap brands in this college. Another netizen commented that if all the girls in the college will be like that, then all the boys will get 100% attendance. Some even compared the cast of the film with cheerleaders.
Some of the netizens also slammed Karan Johar for the nepotism. One of them stated that all the lead cast are from the nepotism batch. Another netizen commented that the title of the movie should be 'Nepotism of the Year 2' but not 'Student of the Year 2'
