Sara Ali Khan who wowed the mas with her performance in Kedarnath and Simmba proved her mettle as a heroine. And now a lot of producers and filmmakers want to cast Sara in their next. Sara who already has three big projects lined up, Aaj Kal with Imtiaz Ali opposite Kartik Aaryan, Coolie No.1 remake opposite Varun Dhawan, and the third being Aanand L Rai’s directorial venture that features Dhanush. But it is now revealed that she is being locked for another film.
A source told a leading daily, “Sara was almost roped in for Angrezi Medium but eventually, dates didn’t work out. Dinesh Vijan really likes her screen presence and feels Sara is a brilliant performer, so he has been wanting to work with her. Now, when Maddock Films was planning to make the next instalment in the Cocktail franchise, they bounced the idea off to Sara. The actress has liked the concept of Cocktail 2 and will mostly step into Deepika Padukone’s shoes for the sequel.” This is not the first time Sara will be a part of a franchise headlined by Deepika as Imtiaz’s rom-com is a sequel to Love Aaj Kal which also featured Deepika.
The source further stated, “The modalities are being worked out currently. But Sara has given her to go ahead. After Coolie No. 1, she will finish Aanand Rai’s next so her dates will be free from April next year. Along with Cocktail 2, she’s in talks for another movie that’s being directed by a filmmaker who makes rather unconventional films.”
