Speculations were put to rest when Sara Ali Khan was announced as the leading lady opposite Ranveer Singh in Simmba. The film directed by Rohit Shetty is co-produced by Karan Johar and Rohit Shetty films.

Sometime back, many names were doing the rounds as to who will play the leading lady in the film. At one point of time, the wink girl, Priya Prakash Varrier and Jahnvi Kapoor were rumoured to sign the film considering their popularity. Another actress, who was also in the race, was Kiara Advani. ‘Machine’ and ‘Lust Stories’ fame Kiara has been striving hard for a box office success but all in vain.

 

A close source reveals, “Karan directed Kiara in Lust Stories and sees a huge potential in her. He even moved her to his talent agency. Karan pitched her to play the female lead in Simmba opposite Ranveer Singh but Rohit wasn’t keen on taking her on board as she was a misfit for the role.”

“The rumours of Saif Ali Khan shaping his daughter’s career were also floating in the recent past. He even intervened into Sara’s much delayed project Kedarnath when the film was stalled due to a legal tiff between the director Abhishek Kapoor and Prernaa Arora,” the source adds.

All is well that ends well. Simmba is slated to release on December 28th 2018!
