- Sushant reportedly "wants the movie to establish Sara as solid performer
- Kedarnath will mark Sara Ali Khan's debut in Bollywood
- Kedarnath releases on November 30
Sara Ali Khan trended a great deal after reports stated that she was reportedly sued by the makers of Kedarnath, for giving away her dates to Simmba when she was still under contract for Kedarnath. The producers of the film had reportedly filed a case against the actress and demanded a sum of Rs 5 crores as compensation. But speaking to mid-day, the source revealed that the matter has been resolved and that Sushant is now ensuring that the "bitterness" does not affect their new film. "After the legal matter regarding Sara's reassigning of dates was settled out of court, Sushant wanted to ensure that the bitterness doesn't spill into the professional space. As the film's leading man, he thought it necessary to have a conversation with Abhishek regarding giving extra mileage to Sara in the movie. Though Simmba will help her establish herself as a commercial actor, this movie will show her acting chops," the source told mid-day.
The filming of Kedarnath was stalled for weeks after Abhishek Kapoor's company and former co-producer KriArj Entertainment (owned by Prernaa Arora) got into a legal tussle regarding the film's funding. In April, a report stated that Ronnie Screwvala had taken over as the co-producer and it was later announced that Kedarnath will release in November, a month before Simmba, in which Sara co-stars with Ranveer Singh. Directed by Rohit Shetty, Simmba will mark Sara's second film and release in December.
