Daughter of the Nawab of Bollywood, Saif Ali Khan
, and his first wife Amrita Singh
, Sara Ali Khan is one of the newest actresses on the block to become a part of Bollywood. After graduating from the University of Columbia in 2016, Sara returned to India and started to prepare for her debut project - Kedarnath
directed by Abhishek Kapoor
, who is known for directing Rock On!!
, Kedarnath also features Sushant Singh Rajput, whom the director worked with, in his acting debut Kai Po Che.
While the project went on floors in June 2017, the movie entered a legal battle after the producers, KriArj Entertainment, and Abhishek had a fallout in 2018. The movie was rumored to be shelved, almost sabotaging the aspiring actress` big debut, however, producer Ronnie Screwvala came to the movie`s rescue and decided to co-produce it with Abhishek Kapoor.
Kedarnath released on 7th Dec, 2018. Between all this, Sara also managed to bag her second movie, Rohit Shetty`s action-comedy Simmba
, which featured Ranveer Singh
, opposite to her in the lead. In 2020, she was cast opposite Kartik Aaryan
in the Imtiaz Ali
directed Romantic Drama Love Aaj Kal
and Coolie No 1.
