Sara Ali Khan recalls when her films shooting dates clashed: Got sued for Rs 5 crore


Sara Ali Khan made her acting debut alongside Sushant Singh Rajput in ‘Kedarnath’ and her next venture ‘Simmba ’ alongside Ranveer Singh released soon enough. However during the time of the shoot, the actress found herself in the middle of the clashing dates. Following, she was subjected to compensate with Rs 5 crore but the issue got solved later.

Narrating the same, she said,"In May 2018, I was supposed to do
Simmba. Kedarnath was happening; it was my debut
film. Then, some dates went upar neeche and I also signed Simmba. Now, there were 3-4 dates that were coinciding. And yeah, I got sued for Rs. 5 crores (by the
makers of Kedarnath)! I was very nervous because I didn't have Rs. 5 crores.” She added, "My mother (Amrita Singh) was in Delhi as her
father was dying. Ibrahim was in school. And I was served a vakaalatnaama. I was like, 'Ab iska main kya karoon? Samaj hi nahin aa raha! I sent the management to court as I had to go and shoot which the makers were aware of as they were also at the
shoot.” Sara further said,  "Rohit sir (Rohit Shetty) and Gattu sir (Abhishek Kapoor) met in a room. Ranveer Singh (her co-star in Simmba) was also present and he said, 'Okay, then' and quickly left the room as it was a bit strange.”Sara concluded, "Kedarnath's makers only wanted three dates and Rohit sir said, 'Theek hai, le lo! The case ended."

"It was tricky as I spent a lot of time flying from Hyderabad to Mumbai. I was shooting
simultaneously; Simmba at night and Kedarnath in the
morning,” she said about shooting back then. 

Sara recently starred in ‘Ae Watan Mere’ and ‘Murder Mubarak’. She will next feature in ‘Metro In Dino’ alongside Aditya Roy Kapur.
