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 daughter Sara Ali Khan 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 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"
Though Ranveer Singh's Sangram Bhalerao will be the driving force of the actioner, 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"
While Saif Ali Khan and Amrita Singh's daughter is yet to display her acting prowess, Shetty is convinced that the youngster has a bright future in the movies. "When I met Sara for the first time, I realised she is a hardcore commercial heroine. She is made for masala films," says the director
Sara Ali Khan has had a rough start in the film industry, with her first film Kedarnath having run into trouble. Now, with the Abhishek Kapoor-directed love saga back on track, the youngster has two big films in her kitty
Talking about how she landed the plum role opposite Ranveer Singh in the cop drama, Rohit Shetty says, "Sara approached me saying she wanted to work with me. I thought she'd be perfect for Simmba. She'll match Ranveer Singh's craziness because her character in the film is such"
Simmba, which brings together the fresh pairing of Ranveer Singh and Sara Ali Khan, also marks the debut collaboration between Rohit Shetty and Karan Johar. Reliance Entertainment presents Rohit Shetty Picturez and Dharma Productions' Simmba, which is slated to release worldwide on December 28, 2018
