Kedarnath is Sara Ali Khan's debut Bollywood film. The film is set against the backdrop of 2013 Kedarnath floods and tracks the love story of Sushant (a Muslim porter) and Sara (a Hindu pilgrim).
In his review for NDTV, film critic Saibal Chatterjee gave Kedarnath 2 stars out of 5. "Kedarnath is a two-hour film, so the demand it makes on your time is reasonable. The special effects aren't up to scratch nor is the screenplay, but do watch the film for Sara Ali Khan," he wrote.
Kedarnath is directed by Abhishek Kapoor, who also launched Sushant in Bollywood with 2013's Kai Po Che!. The film hasn't yet been cleared for a release in Uttarakhand.
After Kedarnath, Sara Ali Khan will be seen in Rohit Shetty's Simmba, which releases on December 28. The film stars Ranveer Singh opposite Sara.
