Everyone is aware that Saif Ali Khan and Amrita Singh’s daughter is making her debut in Rohit Shetty’s Simmba produced by Karan Johar. What is not known to the world is that the role had to be tweaked drastically before Sara steeped into it.
A source close to the development spills the beans. “Initially Karan Johar was supposed to launch Sara. But he couldn’t find the right vehicle for her launch. So he allowed her to do Abhishek Kapoor’s Kedarnath. But when that project hit roadblock, Karan offered Sara Simmba. But the film was completely Ranveer Singh’s. Karan then asked director Rohit Shetty to modify the script to make more space for Sara. He didn’t want her to debut as a prop.” It looks like after Siddharth Malhotra, Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt, Karan Johar has decided to godfather Sara Ali Khan and Sridevi-Boney Kapoor’s daughter Jahnvi Kapoor through their Bollywood journey.
So many debutants are set to enter the industry this year, and it’s beyond exciting!
