Everyone knows 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, however, is that the role had to be tweaked drastically before Sara Ali Khan stepped into it.
A source close to the development has spilled the beans. “Initially, Karan was supposed to launch Sara. But, he couldn’t find the right vehicle for it. So, he allowed her to do Abhishek Kapoor’s Kedarnath. But, when that project hit a roadblock, Karan offered her Simmba.
But, the film was completely Ranveer Singh’s and Karan had to ask director Rohit Shetty to modify the script to make more space for Sara. He didn’t want her to debut as a prop,” the birdie says.
After playing godfather to Siddharth Malhotra, Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt, it looks like Karan has decided to play the role for Sara, and Sridevi-Boney Kapoor’s daughter, Jahnvi Kapoor, too.
