Sara Ali Khan in Vishal Bharadwaj’s Next Film?
Sara Ali Khan will be seen in some pretty unusual roles over the next few months
Saif Ali Khan and Amrita Singh’s daughter is really going places. Sara started on the wrong foot when her debut film Kedarnath nearly got stalled. Once the derailed project was back on the track Sara’s been sailing through one success after another. After two back-to-back hits, Kedarnath and Simmba, Sara seems to have caught the attention of the more discerning filmmakers. Firstly, it is Imtiaz Ali in whose Love Aaj Kal she plays an unusual game of courtship. Unfortunately, the film hasn’t worked for her critically or commercially.
Now, one hears that Vishal Bhardwaj whose last film Patakha was a box-office disaster, is all set to direct Sara. While the project, which brings Bhardwaj and Sara together is yet to be announced, one hears it is the same subject of a female gangster that Bharadwaj had earlier announced with Deepika Padukone in the lead. Interestingly, one of Sara’s father Saif’s most memorable roles, was in Vishal Bhardwaj’s Omkara.
Interestingly, Sara Ali Khan will also have a complete image makeover in Aanand Rai's Atrangi . Sara plays a rustic Bihari girl, and it won’t be about just getting into a florid saree and indulging in loud behaviour. Sara will attend acting workshops to get into the skin of her Bihari character. She will also be tutored the nuances of Bhojpuri (one of the official languages in Bihar, please note there there’s no language called ‘Bihari’) by a voice coach. It seems early in her career, Sara has decided to be more adventurous than her father Saif Ali Khan ever thought of being in his initial days in Bollywood.
