Student of the Year 2 actor Aditya Seal compares his film with Avengers: Endgame; Twitter reacts with memes
Touted as 2019's most-awaited sequel, Student of the Year 2 opened last Friday to mostly negative reviews. The Punit Malhotra directorial features Tiger Shroff, Ananya Panday and Tara Sutaria in the lead roles. Actor Aditya Seal plays the antagonist in the high school romance. In a recent interview with Times Now, Aditya addressed questions about the criticism SOTY2 is facing to its unrealistic plot.
"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." The actor continued justifying his statement by saying, "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 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 said.
Avengers: Endgame, which released worldwide on 26 April, is breaking all possible records at the box office. The MCU finale beat Titanic to become the second-highest grossing film ever, only second to James Cameron's Avatar.
Twitter was prompt to react to Aditya's (blasphemous?) statement.

An indian actor Aditya Seal compared his movie Soty 2 with Avengers end game.

@AdityaSeal_ It's okay to support a movie hated and trolled by masses. But comparing the audience reactions to world's most loved and highest grossing movies is a sick move. No person in his/her right state of mind would even think of talking about SOTY2 and Avengers together. pic.twitter.com/x1ZVQ7BxmL

The point is not about both movies being based in make-believe worlds. Had #SOTY2 had script and performances on par with #AvengersEndgame ,audiences would have loved the former too. @AdityaSeal_ https://t.co/KEST4hj1CC

First comes confidence Then over confidence Then the guys who think that pappu can become p.m. And then etc...etc... ............ ........ ..... ... And then comes the line ”Haters will be haters but they will still come and watch it."#adityaseal#soty2 — Nishank Priydarshi (@Nishank2002) May 12, 2019
1/3...Dear #adityaseal there is a stark difference between the 2 movies, Avengers although conceptual but holds relevance due to its nature of premise...parallel universe, time machine, Galactical war, earth like planets etc.https://t.co/i8na2WLljY
