Saif Ali Khan and Amrita Singh’s daughter Sara Ali Khan, who is currently shooting for her Bollywood debut, “Kedarnath”, opposite Sushant Singh Rajput, has reportedly been zeroed in for a second film.
According to reports, Sara has been finalised for an upcoming production of Anushka Sharma.
But Abhishek Kapoor, the director of “Kedarnath,” is apparently not happy with the deal as the director did not want Sara to sign her second film before the release of his movie, claimed a Mid Day report. The report quoted a source saying, “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 project will be a social drama. When Anushka, Karnesh, Prernaa Arora and Arjun N Kapoor were scouting for a female lead, they zeroed in on Sara. Prernaa and Arjun have worked with her in Kedarnath and they like her dedication. When they narrated the script to Sara, she loved it,” the source added.
Sources from Clean Slate Films and KriArj Entertainment, the production houses, said: “Yes, we have had a casual meeting with Sara, but currently we are focusing all our energies on our next release, Pari.”
Sara’s debut venture, “Kedarnath” will narrate a love story, which has been set in the backdrop of the holy temple town of Kedarnath, Uttarakhand. Sushant will be seen portraying the role of a “pithu”, a man who carries pilgrims to the shrine while Sara will be featured as a young woman, who accompanies a pilgrim to the holy town. Shoot for the film has begun in September.
Kedarnath is slated to be released in 2018.
