If reports are true, then we must say we are devastated! Because with Sara Ali Khan becoming B-town’s sweetheart with her debut Kedarnath and Vicky Kushal’s chains of box office success such as Uri, Sanju, Manmarziyaan, the duo sure sounds like a great onscreen pair. Just a week ago after filmmaker Shoojit Sircar announced his next project with actor Vicky Kaushal, based on the real-life story of freedom fighter Udham Singh, buzzs have it that Sara Ali Khan, who was approached to play the leading lady in the film turned down the offer.
Reports have it that Sara turned down the role opposite Vicky as she wanted to do roles which would offer her more creative space and explore herself as an actor. They added that her role in the Vicky Kaushal starrer will limit her exposure as an actor.
Udham Singh, which is Vicky's first collaboration with Shoojit Sircar expressed his thrill of starring in the biopic movie, talking about the movie, Vicky said, "It's a surreal feeling because it's like a dream come true as I am finally getting to work with him. I have always been a big admirer of how Shoojit sir looks at his stories. The way he is looking at the character (Udham Singh) and the world is extraordinary as well as beautiful. Plus, it's also a big honour for me that finally, I am going to be directed by him. Honestly, that's something that will take time to sink in."
Sara, meanwhile is busy with Imtiaz Ali’s Love Aaj Kal 2 starring Kartik Aaryan in Delhi. Udham Sigh is reportedly all set to go on floors in April, and will hit the screens in 2020.
