Two of the most awaited debuts of 2018, are that of Sridevi’s daughter, Janhvi and Saif Ali Khan’s stunning daughter Sara Ali Khan. While one of them is starring alongside an experienced actor like Sushant Singh Rajput, the other is debuting with ace director Karan Johar.
Sara has been busy shooting for Abhishek Kapoor’s Kedarnath, and if the pictures from the sets are anything to go by, the young actress looks like she’s in her best form. Janhvi on the other hand is still basking in the glory of the three breath-taking posters that were released of Dhadak. The posters with the Kapoor girl and Ishaan Khattar went viral almost instantly after its release, with people raving about how gorgeous Janhvi looked in them, almost like a reflection of her mother. According to some reports, Janhvi’s posters have gotten Sara upset, owing to the amount of frenzy it created among the masses. A source revealed to Pinkvilla, “Her friends and peer group are talking about how good Janhvi’s look in the poster with Ishaan Khatter is. Despite Sara having a bigger co-star in the form of Sushant Singh Rajput, Kedarnath is not much on the radar. Sara has been so stressed that producer Ekta Kapoor took her to a temple to calm her frayed nerves. Amrita also has been a bit stressed, and hence has had a discussion with director Abhishek Kapoor as well. He spoke to the mother and daughter, explaining that in the end, only a good film will make a difference.”
Commenting on the pressure on these two debutants, Ekta Kapoor said, “We are just adding pressure to their lives. Let's leave those poor kids alone. They'll go mad. They have come here to become actors. Sara is anyway very stressed and she was so tense that I had taken her to the temple. She is a very hard-working actress and such a sweet kid. They'll (Sara and Jhanvi) both come and take their destinies forward."
As we wait for both these very promising debuts to release, we can’t help but think about whose will shine brighter at the box office. Who do you think will have a more impactful first film?
