Sara Ali Khan will be playing the leading lady in Rohit Shetty’s Simmba starring Ranveer Singh. This might be Sara Ali Khan’s debut in the film industry.
About Sara Ali Khan being a part of the film, Rohit told a leading news agency, “She is happy to be a part of this. In fact, Sara wants to be part of an action film. I am happy to know that she wants to do all kind of cinema and doesn’t want to get stuck to a film or genre.
She wants to do solo heroine film, ensemble film, hardcore commercial film, love story, comedy, women-oriented subject… She wants to experience everything. She comes from that schooling and I like that in her.”
He further said that he is under no pressure of directing a star kid in his film. “For me, the pressure is that audience should like the film. Other than that, there is no pressure. We felt Sara suits the character so we went with her.”
The Dilwale director said that Simmba is quite different from Ajay Devgn starrer Singham. “Creating a similar cop character would have been tough. This character is totally opposite of Bajirao Singham, he is notorious, flamboyant and the energy is totally different.”
Earlier about Sara, Rohit had said, “Sara approached me saying she wanted to work with me. I thought she’d be perfect for Simmba. She’ll match Ranveer’s craziness because her character in the film is such.”
Simmba will go on the floors next month and will be shot in Goa.
