Sara Ali Khan would not act in candyfloss movies-Father Saif. Sara Ali Khan’s debut film, Kedarnath, is not the kind of film you would expect a star kid to be launched in. Her simplicity in the first look of Kedarnath is a far cry from the glamourous avatar typically associated with star kids.
Her father, Saif Ali Khan, said that it is because Sara, unlike many others, is not attracted to the stardom associated with the profession, but the art of acting.
In an interview with Filmfare, Saif said, “Everyone wants to be a star. But Sara always wanted to ‘act’. She decided that she didn’t want to be in candyfloss movies as she doesn’t believe in them. Now whether it’s right or wrong, it’s her opinion. She won’t blame any of us.”
Incidentally, Saif had earlier expressed concern that his son, Ibrahim, and Akshay Kumar’s son, Aarav, were drawn in by the glitz of Bollywood. He had said, “Ibrahim, Aarav and that group of youngsters want six packs and aspire to be Bollywood stars. I don’t know if anyone wants to be an actor. It is kind of disturbing because not everyone makes it. But then what the heck?”
Meanwhile, Kedarnath is back on track after a nasty fallout between the producer, Prernaa Arora, and director, Abhishek Kapoor, threatened to stall the film. Prernaa had dragged Abhishek to court for his unprofessionalism and disorganised handling of Kedarnath, while he alleged that there were financial interferences and lack of transparency from her end.
It looks like the two have put their differences aside and are working on completing the film. Last month, Sushant Singh Rajput shared a picture with his leading lady, Sara, and the director on Twitter, announcing that they were “back to the grind”. Kedarnath is expected to release on December 21 this year.
