Saif Ali Khan's daughter Sara is all set to take her first step in Bollywood with Abhishek Kapoor's much talked about directorial Kedarnath opposite Sushant Singh Rajput.
And while everyone is waiting for the Pataudi princess to hit the big screen, proud daddy Saif is way too excited about Sara debut and stated it feels like his own movie is being released.
Talking about the same, Nawab of Pataudi was quoted as saying, "I am happy, I am excited for her. I think when we get close to that release, it will be like my own film is releasing."
The makers of Kedarnath even released the first look of the movie, Khan said that he is confident that Sara will be very good in the movie. Kedarnath has hit the floors and is expected to release in December 2018.
Interestingly, Saif too will have a release in 2018 as his upcoming movie Kaalakaandi will hit the screens in January.
Produced by Cinestaan Film Company and Ashi Dua Sara of Flying Unicorn, the film stars Saif along with Deepak Dobriyal, Vijay Raaz, Kunaal Roy Kapoor, Sobhita Dhulipala, Akshay Oberoi, Isha Talwar, Shenaz Treasury, Shivam Patil, Amyra Dastur and Neil Bhoopalam.
"I wouldn't call 'Kaalakaandi' a niche film, I'd call it unpretentious. It was a lot of fun. They were all good actors and I think my acting has improved after working with some of these guys," he said.
Directed by Akshat Verma, "Kaalakaandi" will hit the screens on January 12. The movie will be Saif's first release after this year's "Chef".
The 47-year-old actor said it is sad that the Raja Krishna Menon film could not perform well at the box office.
"I liked his (Raja's) attempt, it was a little European in flavor, and the drama could be a bit more, and I think he generally avoids drama. I think the palette of the film was a little western, I have also got some good reviews, but then some things are really not in your control."
The actor also feels the movie could have been marketed well.
"I don't think it was even publicised correctly. I didn't see enough buzz around the film. It's ok doing interviews, but you've to show the trailer, show hoardings, spend some money.Â Â Â
"These days, people don't want to spend money on marketing, they send the actors to 'Bigg Boss' or 'Comedy Nights with Kapil' to talk about the movie, thinking it'll help, but it won't."Â
