Saif Ali Khan helped Sara with a role in Rohit Shetty's 'Simmba' ?

Saif Ali Khan is a celebrated actor in Hindi Cinema. Reportedly, as a father, he was very concerned about his darling daughter Sara's debut film. But to Saif Ali Khan's dismay, it was reported that there was a feud between Kedarnath's director and producer Prernaa Arora which resulted in the halt of Sara Ali Khan's debut film opposite Sushant Singh Rajput. This reportedly worried Saif Ali Khan, and that's when he decided to help Sara in any manner for bagging a role in Rohit Shetty's Simmba.
