Sushant Singh Rajput bats for Sara Ali Khan to ensure extra screen space for Saif Ali Khan’s daughter in Kedarnath


Sara Ali Khan has started to receive plenty of support from her co-stars including Sushant Singh Rajput, who has reportedly urged the Kedarnath’s director Abhishek Kapoor to provide equal screen space to Saif Ali Khan’s daughter in her debut film.

“Sushant recently watched the rushes of Kedarnath and felt that both the lead actors should get equal prominence. He feels responsible for Sara since he is her first co-actor. He even had a chat with Abhishek, insisting that Sara get as much screen time as him. Sushant wants the movie to establish her as a solid performer,” a source close to Sushant, who recently wrapped up his part for Kedarnath, was quoted by Mid-Day.

Sara was threatened with a lawsuit by Kapoor sought to recovered damages worth Rs 5 crore after she allegedly assigned dates to Simmba, clashing with the shooting schedules of Kedarnath. It had taken Saif’s intervention to ensure an out-of-court settlement in the case. Realising the significance of screen space for a debutante, Sushant is keen to ensure that the bitterness between Kapoor and Sara doesn’t adversely impact the latter’s screen presence in the film.

“After the legal matter regarding Sara’s reassigning of dates was settled out of court, Sushant wanted to ensure that the bitterness doesn’t spill into the professional space. As the film’s leading man, he thought it necessary to have a conversation with Abhishek regarding giving extra mileage to Sara in the movie,” said the source.

In Simmba, Sara is acting opposite Ranveer Singh with the movie being directed by Rohit Shetty.

As for Kedarnath, 24-year-old Sara stars opposite Sushant Singh Rajput. In both her photos, released, she can be seen wearing salwar-kameez with bright blue umbrella on a sunny day in the green mountains of Uttarakhand’s Kedarnath.

Sara, who’s become a new rage on internet, was recently spotted street-shopping with mother Amrita at famous Laad Bazaar, situated close to the Charminar in what’s known as the old town in Hyderabad.
