Saif Ali Khan and Amrita Singh’s daughter Sara Ali Khan is already scaling a victory run amongst the newbies, most of whom are yet to start with the shoot for their respective debut films. Leading Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma is reportedly producing a film and has signed up Sara Ali Khan for it.
Sara Ali Khan is currently shooting for Abhishek Kapoor’s Kedarnath opposite Sushant Singh Rajput. According to a Mid Day report, Abhishek Kapoor was against Sara signing a second film before the release of his film. “But Sara didn’t agree to that. Kedarnath’s release has been delayed due to the winter in north India, pushing the release to the end of next year. Sara didn’t wish to wait that long,” the report quoted a source as saying.
“The project will be a social drama. When Anushka, Karnesh, Prernaa Arora and Arjun N Kapoor [of KriArj] were scouting for a female lead, they zeroed in on Sara. Prernaa and Arjun have worked with her in Kedarnath [co-producers] and they like her dedication. When they narrated the script to Sara, she loved it,” the source added.
The spokesperson of Clean Slate Films and KriArj Entertainment also confirmed the same as mentioned in the report, “Yes, we have had a casual meeting with Sara, but currently we are focusing all our energies on our next release, Pari.”
Kedarnath is a love story that unfolds during a pilgrimage and the 2013 Uttarakhand floods for which Kapoor wants to recreate a set in Mumbai itself.
A source is quoted as saying, “The makers (of Kedarnath) felt that the sequence deserves a grander canvas. So, they have decided to recreate the town of Kedarnath in Mumbai. The set will be erected by February next year. Abhishek intends to wrap up the sequence by June. This has, in turn, pushed the release.” A VFX team from Los Angeles has also been brought in to capture the severity of the natural disaster.Kedarnath is now expected to release on December 21, 2018.
