Contrary to several media reports claiming that Saif Ali Khan was set to act with his daughter Sara Ali Khan in the latter’s third film together.
However, a source close to Saif has rubbished the report as ‘rumour-mongering.’ “Is Saif nuts to work with his daughter when she’s just starting out? The comparisons would kill Sara’s career. It would be a very long time before Saif agrees to share frames with his daughter,” Asian Age quoted the source confirming.
It was termed as a casting coup in the Hindi film industry after website DNA reported that Saif Ali Khan had reportedly agreed to do a film together with daughter Sara Ali Khan.
According to the website, the two will be seen in reel-life father-daughter roles. Sara has recently wrapped up the shooting for her debut film Kedarnath and has already started the shoot for Rohit Shetty’s Simbba opposite Ranveer Singh.

Saif was quoted by DNA website as saying, “Nitin (Filmistaan director Nitin Kakkar) and I have been in talks for a film, but it’s in the early stages. We haven’t finalised it yet. The script is good.”
The website reported that Nitin had already approached Sara for the film and modalities and dates needed to be sorted out.
“This will probably be Saif and Sara’s first film together. Both of them have liked the story and have verbally given their nod. Now, the modalities and the dates need to be sorted out. Sara and Saif were Nitin’s first choices and the makers thought it would make for an interesting casting coup,” it had quoted a source as saying.
Sara has become a new rage in Bollywood even before her films are out. Mumbai’s paparazzi have been following every single movement of the young actor.
On Saturday, the young actor’s photos in gym T-shirt and shorts while emerging out of a fitness centre surfaced on Instagram from multiple Bollywood fan handles. In the photos, Sara looked incredibly fit as fans appeared smitten by her beauty once again.
Sara was recently embroiled in a legal battle after the Kedarnath director threatened to slap a Rs 5 crore lawsuit against Saif’s daughter. This was after she had signed Simmba, whose dates clashed with the shooting of Kedarnath. It had taken Saif’s personal intervention to have the matter resolved outside the court.
