- Sara Ali Khan's debut film Kedarnath is directed by Abhishek Kapoor
- Kedarnath is a story set on a pilgrimage, says the director
- Sara has been cast opposite Sushant Singh Rajput in the film
There is already a lot of hype in the media about Sara's debut. Amrita Singh is the one shortlisting the scripts for her daughter. Abhishek Kapoor spoke about Sara's casting: "We are a filmmaking company, and we will strive to tell stories with those who fit our vision the best. Casting newcomers is not a deliberate move but a natural process. Sara is a beautiful bundle of energy. The new talent we bring in today will be the future of the industry.''
Abhishek Kapoor's last film Fitoor turned out to be a disaster at the box office. He is now looking forward to making a successful comeback. "I have seen many failures in my life. From my career as an actor to my directorial debut, failure teaches you a lot. Fitoor taught me that every idea comes with a certain budget and one needs to operate within that,'' he said.
Not just the director of the film but the lead actor Sushant Singh Rajput too is hoping Kedarnath does well as his last film Raabta with Kriti Sanon turned out to be a big dud. Here's hoping debutante Sara Ali Khan brings some good luck for these two men in desperate need of a hit.
