Bollywood actor Saif Ali Khan's daughter Sara Ali Khan is all set to make her big Bollywood debut in the Abhishek Kapoor's directorial 'Kedarnath' starring Sushant Singh Rajput in the lead. But the soon-to-be actress's first Bollywood film has faced a roadblock when the director and co-producer of KriArj Entertainment had a fallout. When Sara's debut film was being jeopardized, owing to the 'Kedarnath' crisis, coming to her rescue was none other than ace producer Karan Johar, who roped her in as the female lead opposite Ranveer Singh in 'Simmba', directed by Rohit Shetty.
It was earlier reported that Sara Ali Khan will make her big Bollywood debut with, Rohit Shetty directorial, 'Simmba' which is slated to release on December 28, 2018. However, the release date of the Abhishek Kapoor's directorial ‘Kedarnath’ recently got proponed to November 30, 2018, thereby, making it the first film for Sara.
In yet another twist, the director and co-producer of 'Kedarnath', Abhishek Kapoor, dragged Sara to court after she signed 'Simmba'. The case has been filed in the Bombay High Court.
While talking to Republic TV, Advocate Hitesh Jain, who is ass0ciated with Abhishek Kapoor's production house, Guy In The Sky Pictures Pvt Ltd, said that 'Kedarnath' was partially been made and the makers of the film required Sara's dates in June and July, 2018 to finish the work, before the makers began work on the post-production. He further said that the film is already scheduled for a release on November 30, 2018 and if Sara does not turn up, the whole schedule will be disrupted.
Hitesh further added that the makers of the film were recently informed by a source close to Sara that she is busy with Rohit Shetty's 'Simmba' and that she will not be available after June to work on 'Kedarnath'. Hence, the producers have now dragged Sara to the Bombay High Court to stop her from working on another film and focus on her initial commitment. The producers also demanded Rs 5 crore as damages from the actress. The question raised in the court is whether an actor can change dates given in the agreement and can work for some other movie. The case is being heard by Justice SJ Kathawala, and the next hearing is scheduled on Tuesday, May 29, 2018.
