Post the debacle and backlash against Coolie No. 1, the film’s lead actress, Sara Ali Khan, already seems to be looking forward to her forthcoming projects, among which Atrangi Re alongside Akshay Kumar and Dhanush appears to be shaping quite well and also has the actress pretty excited. However, given the recent trend and semblance of success that female-oriented films have been garnering of late, the question on the industry, media and also her fans’ lips is whether Sara Ali Khan would be keen to step into that zone even though it’s pretty early days in her career.
Addressing the topic in a recent interview with KoiMoi, Sara Ali Khan said, “I don’t know, it’s never about that for me. My career for me has never been about, ‘aaj commercial film karte hai, kal serious ya parso solo film karte hai or Ranveer (Singh) ke sath karte hai.’ Aisa nahi hota. Mere liye hamesha ye hota hai ki agar koi mujhe koi kahaani sunaye, and mujhe lagta hai ye kahani mujhe suhani hai. Ab wo chahe wo kahaani mai akeli suna rahi hu yam era chota hissa hai ya bohot bada hai – at the end of the day, I do want to tell good and relevant stories. (My career has never been about planning a commercial film today, doing a serious tomorrow or working on a solo film day after or one with Ranveer (Singh). It doesn’t work that way. For me, it’s about telling stories that I feel should be told. Now it doesn’t matter whether that film is solo or I have a small part to play in it.)”
That being said, Sara did reveal that she’s now looking toward more meaty roles after getting a whiff of it in Atrangi Re. “But I do think that, especially after Atrangi Re, I have become a little bit greedy and I do think that I want to do meaty things. Uska matlab ye nahi hai ki akele karna. I just want to do a role and a character that I can get into and a story that deserves to be told. I don’t like to complicate it more than that,” she added.
