Sara Ali Khan, the daughter of Bollywood star Saif Ali Khan is schduled to make her film debut with Abhishek Kapoor’s Badrinath, but now, it seems that even without having proved herself onscreen, she’s getting opportunities to star in movies. According to some sources, she will be playing Irrfan’s daughter in the movie, Hindi Medium, which will flash forward as Pia grows up. There have been no confirmation, but Sara’s casting could happen based on the fact that her mother, Amrita Singh had starred as a Principle in the movie, and Saif has good relations with the producer of the movie, Dinesh Vijan. The shooting will begin sometime soon.
Hindi Medium was a critical and commercial success, with Irrfan and Saba Qaram’s performances being praised by people and critics alike. However, it seems unlikely that Saba is going to return for the sequel, because of the recent tensions between Pakistan and India. Irrfan also won the best actor film fare award for his performance in the movie.
If Saba does get the role, it could be another opportunity for her to prove her talent, however, the claims of nepotism have already begun to swirl around her, with people calling out the fact that Saba has yet to star in one movie but is getting a lot more opportunities just based on her family name. It’s too soon to make a judgement, and the best thing would be to wait for the official news and then watch Saba’s performance when the film releases.
