Writers in search of enticing copies often come up with brainwaves that have no roots in facts. The latest such idle idol-fantasy is the report that a filmmaker named Nitin Kakkad is planning to bring Saif and his daughter Sara Ali Khan together.
A source close to Saif’s family pooh-poohs the very idea. “Is Saif nuts to work with his daughter when she’s just starting out? The comparisons would just kill Sara’s career. It would be a very long time before Saif agrees to share frames with his daughter. Anil Kapoor has agreed to come together with his daughter Sonam (in Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga) after she has completed a decade in the movies. Perhaps Saif too will work with Sara after a decade, and that too if someone comes up with a worthy script.”
It’s never a good idea for established actors to share screen space with their progenies. Not too many people know this . But Sanjay Leela Bhansali had offered Khamoshi: The Musical to mother-daughter Dimple Kapadia and Twinkle. Dimple suggested that Bhansali sign Twinkle and find another actress to play the mother.”
On another note, Saif Ali Khan is basking in the appreciation he has got for his Netflix series Sacred Games. Sara, meanwhile is making her debut with the much-delayed Kedarnath opposite Sushant Singh Rajput. Fortunately for her, Rohit Shetty’s Simbaa has brought on another opportunity to make a mark in Bollywood.
