The Pataudi girl, Sara Ali Khan, made her Bollywood debut with a bang. She started her journey in the year 2018, with Abhishek Kapoor’s critically acclaimed Kedarnath. The Khan girl was then seen opposite Ranveer Singh in a massy Rohit Shetty blockbuster like Simmba. As if that wasn’t enough, Sara will now be sharing the screen space alongside her desirable ‘Koffee’ date – Kartik Aaryan. The two of them have been roped in for Imtiaz Ali’s Love Aaj Kal 2 and shooting of the same has kick-started. But, did you know that she had to sacrifice a biopic for this romantic saga?
Reportedly, Sara Ali Khan was approached by the makers of Udham Singh biopic. However, she had to politely turn it down because its dates were clashing with that of Imtiaz Ali’s Love Aaj Kal 2. Reports further claimed that this film didn’t have much to offer for Sara as she felt that it wouldn’t give her enough exposure as an actress. We feel you, Sara! FYI, Vicky Kaushal is going to be the lead in Udham Singh biopic.

An absolute honour to be roped in to play Shaheed Udham Singh, in his biopic to be directed by @shoojitsircar sir... the man who was sitting right at the top of my wish list of Directors to work with. Can’t wait for this journey to start next month. Produced by Ronnie Lahiri. ਵਾਹਿਗੁਰੂ 🙏
Vicky’s last outing, URI: The Surgical Strike is a blockbuster and it has completed over 50 successful days in theatres. The film which is based on Indian Army’s 2016 surgical strike, managed to rake in nearly Rs 240 crores at the box office. If not Udham Singh, we are sure some other interesting project awaits the magical pairing of Sara Ali Khan and Vicky Kaushal on the silver screen.
