Sara Ali Khan


On Tuesday, speculations were rife that newcomer Sara Ali Khan, who wowed audiences with her debut performance in Kedarnath (2018), has been approached to play the female lead in acclaimed filmmaker Shoojit Sircar’s next directorial venture Udham Singh, which is a biopic on great freedom fighter Udham Singh.

The movie, which was officially announced a couple of days ago, is headlined by rising star Vicky Kaushal. Several media outlets reported that Sara Ali Khan has been approached to play his onscreen wife in the flick.

However, now the makers have quashed all reports which stated that the newcomer was approached to play the female lead opposite Vicky Kaushal in Udham Singh.

“There is a rumour doing the rounds about the casting of our film, Udham Singh. The only actor on board the project currently is Vicky Kaushal who will play the lead. We would like to categorically state that no other actor or actress has either been approached or offered any role in the film. We request you to refrain from conjecture on this matter,” informed Ronnie Lahiri, who is bankrolling the project under the banner of Rising Sun Films.

Reportedly, Sara Ali Khan is presently shooting for Love Aaj Kal 2, which is a sequel to the 2008 film Love Aaj Kal. Imtiaz Ali is directing the sequel which stars Kartik Aaryan as the male lead. However, an official announcement is yet to be made.
