Confirmed! Sara Ali Khan to debut opposite Sushant in ‘Kedarnath’


So finally, it can be confirmed that Sara Ali Khan will make her debut opposite Sushant Singh Rajput in director Abhishek Kapoor’s next project. Abhishek himself confirmed the same to India Today stating that Sara will indeed be making her Bollywood debut opposite the ‘Raabta’ actor in his upcoming film titled ‘Kedarnath’.  

The Bollywood debut of the 24-year-old daughter of Saif Ali Khan and his ex-wife Amrita Singh had been under speculation for the longest time. She was previously attached to Karan Johar’s ‘Student of the Year 2’ starring Tiger Shroff; then there were reports that she will debut with Shahid Kapoor’s brother Ishaan Khattar in KJo’s remake of Hollywood flick ‘The Fault In Our Stars’. At one point it was also said Sara will debut opposite Hrithik Roshan in a film by Karan Malhotra, but it was only a few days ago that reports surfaced about Sara’s debut opposite Sushant.

‘Kedarnath’ will be produce by Ekta Kapoor under her banner Balaji Motion Pictures and the film is currently in its scripting stage. Earlier, reports stated that Ekta had roped in Sara for her upcoming production.

“Gattu (Abhishek) wanted a fresh pairing for his film. He decided to cast Saif’s daughter as the female lead in the film. The team has met Sara and she has liked the script. She is most likely to come on board within two weeks,” a DNA report had quoted a source in this regard.

Sushant made his debut with Abhishek’s 2013 film ‘Kai Po Che!’ and ‘Kedarnath’ will bring together the actor-director duo for the second time, after rumours of a fall-out between them, which surfaced after Sushant walked out of Abhishek’s 2016 film ‘Fitoor’.
