Karan Johar did it in Student of the Year in a classy way but Ekta Kapoor’s Class of 2017 promises to be an insult to everything that the Indian public knows to be true about education.
The trailer begins and ends with sex, drugs and… well, there’s no rock’n’roll, at least in the trailer. The trailer is likely to anger everyone who has ever been in an educational institute for whatever amount of time.
There is no denying that schools and colleges are the places where students experience most of these things for the first time. However, that baffles the mind is how the trailer has not even an inkling of what the kids go to actually do in a boarding school or college – study.
According to industry sources, ALTBalaji had this series made a couple of years back, but it never got any takers on primetime. Now, that ALTBalaji has a platform, they are keen on putting up whatever they have in their kitty.
