We reported a few days ago how Saif Ali Khan and daughter Sara Ali Khan were uniting for the first time for Nitin Kakkar’s next directorial. A source said, “The father-daughter drama was supposed to roll out in March 2019. They were talking about shooting it in London and Mumbai. Though Saif and Sara had not signed the contract, they had agreed verbally. The team was also looking out for an older heroine to play Sara’s mother.”
However, it seems this father-daughter jodi will take slightly longer than expected to collaborate for a film. The source continued, “Sara walked out of the film. She has given her dates to another project.” She will apparently make her debut this year with Rohit Shetty’s Simmba while Kedarnath has been pushed for an early 2019 release.” And what about Saif ? The source states, “Saif was keen on doing the film only because it had Sara as the leading lady. Although it’s a great script, he, too, is reconsidering the offer. Meanwhile, we hear he might shoot for Anurag Basu’s next project around the same time.”
It’s now being reported that the actress will star in the sequel to Hindi Medium, which she had initially said no to. “After Irrfan fell sick, the sequel was put on hold. But recently, producer Dinesh Vijan and director Homi Adajania narrated the script to Irrfan, who’s on the road to recovery. The actor has liked the idea and the makers are expected to begin the shoot sometime next year. Since the sequel will have a time lapse of 10 years, Sara, who was the original choice, is right for it,” the source says.
