Since the time the glossy trailer was released, there has been a lot of curiosity around it. “SOTY 2 is a Movie for the young audience.

The good part here is that people already know and follow Tara and Ananya's profiles. Tiger's positivity and dedication is something his fans swear by. Even the songs are finding their way up on the charts. SOTY and SOTY 2 are a part of the same family; I don’t see why one needs to draw comparisons. You don’t compare between your kids, do you? They’re both Karan’s babies.”
