Sara Ali Khan debuted in the film industry in 2018 and it is huge feat for the actress as she got an opportunity to work with Anand L Rai so early on in her career. The director-actor duo's film is up for release soon and audiences can't wait to see the magic created by them.
On her cards next, the actress has 'Atrangi Re' alongside Dhanush. The actor, who admires the filmmaker’s knack for etching out flawed but strong-headed women characters, holds 'Atrangi Re' close to her heart. “After 'Kedarnath' , which was my first film, 'Atrangi Re' has been the most exciting project for me in terms of performance,” begins Khan, who wrapped up the Akshay Kumar and Dhanush-starrer before the second wave of the pandemic hit the country.
While there was a lot of chatter about the glaring age difference between Kumar and Khan when the film was announced, she says Rai has woven a sensitive love story, true to his signature style. “Aanandji is the most compassionate and loving human being I have ever come across. On his sets, it is his emotions, purity and vulnerability that drive him. He tries to extract that from his performers as well. I’m not a trained actor, so I go by my conviction and the director’s vision. It’s important for me to be guided because I can go off-track. It’s important for a director to tell me, ‘Sara, yeh zyada ho gaya, thoda kam karo.’ He has done that beautifully for me,” states Khan.
