Saif Ali Khan and Amrita Singh’s daughter, Sara Ali Khan, who is shooting for her Bollywood debut, Kedarnath, opposite Sushant Singh Rajput, may already have bagged her second film.
According to a report in Mid-Day, Sara is set to star in a film backed by Anushka Sharma’s production house Clean Slate Films (co-owned by her brother, Karnesh) and KriArj Entertainment.
A Mid Day report claimed Thursday that Kedarnath director Abhishek Kapoor did not want Sara to sign her second film before the release of his movie. “But Sara didn’t agree to that. Kedarnath’s release has been delayed due to the winter in north India, pushing release to the end of next year. Sara didn’t wish to wait that long,” the report quoted a source as saying.
Says a source, “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 insider adds that Abhishek Kapoor didn’t want Khan to sign her second film until Kedarnath had wrapped up. “But Sara didn’t agree to that. Kedarnath’s release has been delayed due to the winter in North India, pushing release to end of next year. Sara didn’t wish to wait that long.”
When contacted, the spokesperson of Clean Slate Films and KriArj Entertainment said, “Yes, we have had a casual meeting with Sara, but currently we are focusing all our energies on our next release, Pari.”
Kedarnath is an upcoming Indian Hindi-language film written, directed and co-produced by Abhishek Kapoor. It featuresSushant Singh Rajput and Sara Ali Khan in the lead roles which marks the latter’s debut in acting. The film is scheduled to release on 25 January, 2019
