By admin Jun25,2024

In 2021, Bollywood actress Sara Ali Khan starred in Atrangi Re, which was directed by Aanand L. Rai. Atrangi Re also starred Akshay Kumar and Dhanush and was released on Disney+ Hotstar due to the lockdowns triggered by the pandemic.

Atrangi Re’s official log line reads, “Chaos ensues when a runaway woman gets forcefully married to a man who is already engaged. The situation turns murkier when the girl’s boyfriend enters their lives.” Meanwhile, Sara Ali Khan played a dual role in Atrangi Re.

Recently, in an interview with Mid-Day, Sara Ali Khan revealed that she asked director Aanand L. Rai cast Alia Bhatt in the role offered to her as she was very ‘nervous.’ Talking about the same, Sara Ali Khan said, “I called Aanand L. Rai and told him, ‘Atrangi Re is a great script. This character is outstanding. Are you sure you don’t want to call Alia Bhatt?’”

When inquired about why she suggested Alia Bhatt for the role, Sara Ali Khan said, “Because I was very nervous. This was after Love Aaj Kal. He told me, ‘On a personal note, I’ll deal with you. But Rinku is not a character that you can play on the back foot. So you can’t do this right now or ever.’ That really helped pick me up.”

Atrangi Re, a cross-cultural love story set in Bihar and Madurai, saw Sara Ali Khan play a Bihari girl while Dhanush essayed the role of a Tamilian student.

On the professional front, Sara Ali Khan will next be seen alongside Ayushmann Khurrana for the first time in an upcoming action comedy film. The upcoming movie will be produced by Dharma Productions and Sikhya Entertainment. This upcoming untitled movie will be directed by Aakash Kaushik, and is expected to be a spy comedy. This is the first time Ayushmann Khurrana is working with Karan Johar.
