The director has teased fans with a series of images to promote the college-themed movie.
"The competition of life starts soon. A Karan Johar film," reads one of the initial posters, against the image of a sports trophy.
A second poster in the series shows a basketball being bounced in front of a sepia visual of a grand, imposing building - a trope of Johar's style of cinema.
The third poster presents lead actors Siddharth Malhotra, Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan wearing basketball outfits with the names 'Abhimanyu', 'Shanaya' and 'Rohan' emblazoned across their backs.
Actors Shah Rukh Khan, Kajol and Rishi Kapoor are rumoured to appear in the film in supporting roles or cameo appearances.
Johar's first movie since My Name Is Khan releases worldwide October 19.
