Saif Ali Khan and Amrita Singh's daughter Sara Ali Khan made an impressive debut back in 2018 with Kedarnath. However, post the release of her first two films, the actress was brutally trolled online for her performances in Love Aaj Kal and Coolie No 1. Recalling the phase, Sara recently revealed that she had called Anand L Rai to ask him if he wants to replace her in Atrangi Re. For the unversed, Sara started shooting for Atrangi Re a couple of weeks after Love Aaj Kal was released.
Sara Ali Khan confesses her performance in Love Aaj Kal was “horrible”; recalls asking Aanand L Rai if she can still star in Atrangi Re
It all happened during her conversation with YouTuber Ranveer Allahbadia. While discussing her career graph, Khan asserted, “My performance in Love Aaj Kal was really horrible. I was not convincing enough in Coolie No 1, and I think I’m aware of that. After Kedarnath and Simmba, me, my mother, my brother, and the audience, everybody had certain expectations because I was decent in these films. I did come out suddenly and everybody was like ‘Oh my God, Sara!’ and then I have two back-to-back films and you all were like ‘Really Sara?!’, and being an actor is such a huge part of who I am, but it is not just who I am.”
As the conversation progressed further, Sara added, “I remember calling Anand ji and I asked if he wants to replace me because… nobody knows this, I don’t talk about it much, but Love Aaj Kal released on Feb 14, and I was supposed to start shooting with Aanand ji from Feb 26, so I called him on Feb 16 and I asked him he thinks I can do this, and he said to me, ‘Fear and this playing on the backdoor mentality, might be something that Sara does but Rinku doesn’t, and you’re my Rinku and you’re never going to talk to me like that ever again’. And it made me realise that I have to keep moving forward, acknowledging the mistakes that I’ve made, learning from the mistakes that I’ve made but also allowing myself to make them.”
Before concluding her take, Sara stated that she “became quite harsh” on herself after her failure. “I think I lost the sense of reality and I started doing things just that I wasn’t fully convinced about. I think there was an element of fakeness to me during that time,” told the 27-year-old actress.
Coming to the professional front, Sara has a bunch of projects in her kitty including Gaslight opposite Vikrant Massey, Homi Adajania’s Murder Mubarak, Metro... Inn Dino, and Ae Watan Mere Watan, among others.
