Bollywood’s emerging star Sara Ali Khan’s Love Aaj Kal, also featuring Kartik Aaryan, is all set to hit the theatres this Valentine’s Day. And currently, she is busy promoting her upcoming flick, which happens to be her third film after Kedarnath and Simmba.
Besides, Sara is presently shooting for one of this year’s most anticipated films, Coolie No. 1 opposite Varun Dhawan. Also, she recently announced her next ‘Atrangi Re,’ which would be an AR Rahman musical and also stars Dhanush and Akshay Kumar.
As a part of the ongoing promotions of Love Aaj Kal, she has been busy giving interviews to different media agencies. During one of the interviews, when she was asked on what she thinks of netizens’ criticism for one dialogue she uttered in the trailer, she reacted-
"You know, for me this film is very special, and there wasn't a single day on set when I wasn't honest to my work. I was truly feeling what my character should've felt. On a personal note, I'm a very confident girl. So it never affects me if people comment on my personal life, my looks, hair or nails. However, I work for the audience, and if I falter in that, I don't like it. Perhaps I have very high expectations from myself, which is why I don't want anyone to comment anything wrong about my work. It may be a very idealistic notion, it's doesn't happen, it's not possible, and I understand that different people have diverse opinions and I respect that. As long as you learn and assimilate the positive feedback and don't allow it to bog you down, it's all part and parcel of the job. I'm here to learn and I'll continue to learn and that's what is most important to me. It's just that the feedback should be constructive and not for the heck of it."
Apart from that, on being asked about what made her choose Atrangi Re, she replied-
"Honestly, when I read the script of Atrangi Re, I wasn't convinced I could do the film. The character is a tough one to pull off, and I want to do one hell of a job trying to prove otherwise.”
Further, she explained how director Aanand L. Rai portrays women authentically in his movies. She said-
"Aanand sir depicts his women authentically, and that's what drew me to the film. Cinema is a director's medium. The filmmakers I work with are sensitive towards the depiction of women, but I don't involve myself in the writing at all.”
And when she was quizzed if knowing her co-star Kartik Aaryan well helped shape her on-screen chemistry with him, she said-
“Not at all! I think that on-screen has nothing to do with how well I know Kartik. Since I know him, we have more fun, but our on-screen characters only reflect a strong director with a strong idea. Love is a journey, filmmaking too is a journey, and what happens on sets was the result of work-shopping with Kartik, reading with him, and understanding what he was doing as my co-star. Yes, he gave me more cues than any of my co-actors, and I am grateful for that because it kept me happy, and in a good mental space.”
