The rumours have been around for a while now. With the older crop attaining slight seniority in the industry, the doors are open for the next batch of debutants to show the stuff they’re made of and whether they possess that unique quality that defines a star.
After Athiya Shetty and Sooraj Pancholi’s successful launch by Salman Khan and Anil Kapoor’s son Harshvardhan Kapoor set for a grand entry, it is now time for Saif Ali Khan’s daughter Sara Ali Khan and Shahid Kapoor’s brother Ishaan Khattar to face the cameras. A report in Deccan Chronicle said that as per reliable sources, the youngsters will be launched in an unusual love story, produced by none other than Karan Johar.
Says a source close to the development, “It is not enough anymore to make a boy-meets-girl launchpad for two star kids. The launch vehicle has to be an out-of-the-box showcase to accentuate the debutants’ personalities. Sara and Ishaan are ready. The script is being worked on.”
Both Sara and Ishaan have harboured acting ambitions since childhood but they are open to other career options too. “They are not looking at acting as their first and last option,” the source adds. Sara, who has graduated from Colombia University, grew up watching her parents leave for shoots every day. For Ishaan, his brother Shahid’s a hero. Shahid, in fact, is actively involved in his kid-brother’s diet, physique and grooming.
Surprisingly, Sridevi and Boney Kapoor’s elder daughter Jhanvi has been turning down offers from Karan Johar, YashRaj Films and several other big production houses! While we have no idea why she would do that, we presume the youngster is currently looking at other career options!
