While Sara Ali Khan was supposed to foray into Bollywood with Kedarnath, a tussle between the film's producers over the last few months has led to her making her debut with Simmba. Knowing the significant role that a launch vehicle plays in a debutante's film journey, Amrita Singh has apparently asked filmmakers Karan Johar and Rohit Shetty to ensure her daughter has a meaty role in the cop drama
Considering Temper - the Telugu film that Simmba is inspired from - had precious little for the leading lady to do, buzz is the Hindi script is being reworked to ensure more screen time for Sara Ali Khan. A source reveals, "The writers are reworking the parts of both, the leading man and his love interest. Since this is Sara Ali Khan's debut film, Amrita was clear that she shouldn't be overshadowed by Ranveer Singh"
Though Ranveer Singh's Sangram Bhalerao will be the driving force of Simmba, Sara Ali Khan's character will be the reason behind his transformation from an unscrupulous cop to one with morals. The source adds, "The movie has a message about women's safety, with an emphasis on Sara's character. While the leading lady in the Telugu original served only as the love interest, her character will be more involved in the story"
Nushrat Bharucha was also spotted in Bandra, Mumbai. Nushrat's last outing Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety became the second Bollywood film to enter the Rs 100 crore club this year after Padmaavat. She starred alongside Kartik Aaryan and Sunny Singh in the film. There were rumours about Nushrat and co-star Kartik dating but the latter has rubbished them
Nushrat Bharucha, who is basking in the success of her last release Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety, says people in the film industry have started looking at her differently. "Industry has already started looking at me differently. And that difference is of belief. I can feel a sense of belief in me," Nushrat said in a statement during a media interaction a few weeks ago
On her success, Nushrat Bharucha said: "When you have been persistent for as long as I have been, you have to exercise a certain amount of caution, but I want to do everything. I wish there were 48 hours in a day and 14 days in a week"
Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety, a new-age love triangle set with a 'bromance' twist, released on February 23, and has crossed the Rs 100 crore mark. Film expert Taran Adarsh tweeted: "Truly unstoppable. 'Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety' marches into Rs. 100 crore club... Second film to cross Rs. 100 crore mark in 2018, after 'Padmaavat'." Pictured: Nushrat Bharucha
