Mumbai: Sara Ali Khan, daughter of Saif Ali Khan and estranged wife Amrita Singh, is the new star kid on the block.
The star kid’s launch pad has been the centre of discussion for many months now.
Sara was to debut with Greek God Hrithik Roshan, but the news went to thrash. Later she was tagged opposite Tiger Shroff in ‘Student of the Year 2’, however, nothing concrete has been on record about this development.
Latest we hear is that the budding star kid was to debut in a Yash Raj Film ‘Thugs of Hindostan’ starring the stalwarts of Bollywood, Aamir Khan, and Amitabh Bachchan.
But to none’s avail, promising Sara missed out on this deal too.
According to a portal, the reason is YRF’s head honcho Aditya Chopra.
Apparently, Sara landed at YRF for an audition, but Aditya didn’t find her interesting enough and thus discarded her for the film.
The portal further went on to add that mommy Amrita Singh was very keen to have her daughter debut with the megastars of Bollywood, which would give her instant stardom and limelight.
Unfortunately, nothing of that sort is happening now.
As per reports on Pinkvilla, Amrita is closely keeping an eye on Sara’s debut film and apparently she had also asked Sara to move out of Karan Johar’s film, which would be an adaptation of the novel ‘The Fault in our Stars’.
A source quoted Pinkvilla confirming, “Amrita doesn’t want Sara to be Karan Johar’s next discovery because she fears Sara will be lost amidst the many star kids Karan has launched in Bollywood by far including his favourite, Alia Bhatt.”
Looks like Amrita wants Sara to stand out and prove her mettle, rather than being an addition to the league of famous star kids who are already ruling the industry.
However, on the other hand, Saif had earlier confirmed that daughter Sara will be launched by Karan Johar.
Talking about it, he had earlier mentioned to a portal, “I think she is going to. I am very happy she is working with Karan Johar because I think he is brilliant with newcomers and he will launch her correctly. He is a very intelligent and a passionate filmmaker and he understands films. I am very pleased that she is with him."
All we can say is, best wishes to you Sara!
