Sara Ali Khan recently starred in the Coolie No 1 remake alongside Varun Dhawan. The film has not opened to positive reviews.
“The earlier Coolie No 1 had a cheery lunacy and a degree of innocence that allowed the ridiculous plot to play out as an extended joke. But in 2020, the narrative is dated and offensive on so many levels,” veteran film critic Anupama Chopra wrote in her review for the film.
However, it is evident that the actress is quite a popular choice for major filmmakers in the industry. Mere years after her debut, Sara Ali Khan has shared the screen with the top actors of the industry – Varun Dhawan, Kartik Aaryan and Ranveer Singh.
Now, Filmfare reports that the actress may be sharing the screen with another Bollywood biggie, Ranbir Kapoor. Kabir Singh and Arjun Reddy director Sandeep Reddy Vanga faced major heat on social media following the release of these two films as netizens accused him of promoting domestic abuse. However, both films went on to become major Box Office successes.
Now, there are rumours that the controversial director is going to tie up with Ranbir Kapoor for his next project and that Sara Ali Khan is the lead contender for the role of the leading lady. According to Filmfare, Khan has also auditioned for the film.
“Sandeep Reddy Vanga is known to be quite picky and particular about his casting. Even for Arjun Reddy’s remake, he was very sure who he sees playing the leading man in Bollywood even though some of the big names were running contenders. This time he teams up with Ranbir Kapoor and they want to make sure that they get the right female lead,” a source told the entertainment portal.
