Rohit Shetty says Sara Ali Khan is a combination of Karisma and Kareena Kapoor Khan
Director Rohit Shetty is currently on cloud nine after having delivered a blockbuster with Simmba which starred Ranveer Singh in and as Simmba.
The movie has been roaring at the box office with no dent to its momentum. Also starring opposite Ranveer was Sara Ali Khan who made an impressive debut in the movies with Kedarnath. While Sara has been on a role with her confidence and charm winning hearts, we asked Rohit if he thinks she has it in her to be a superstar mirroring the opinions of the millennials.
To this, Rohit agreed and said, "When we did Aankh Marey, I already told her that we did not have a replacement of Karishma Kapoor, who was a great actor and at the same time managed the mass palette well.
Doing Dil Toh Pagal Hai also and doing all David Dhawan films too and then came Kareena. Amongst the young lot, I think she can fix that block, she can do a Kedarnath also and also can do a Simmba. Rarely, we have this combination in a younger lot and she fits that bill. When I say this, I think that is the quality of a superstar."
Well, that is quite a compliment coming from Shetty.
Meanwhile, Rohit will soon begin working on Sooryavanshi, another cop film he recently announcement with Akshay Kumar. Speculations are rife that Katrina Kaif might feature alongside Kumar in the movie.
