"Once she heard the scenes, Amrita said no as she feels that she's not a part of the Pataudis after her divorce from Saif Ali Khan. His mother Sharmila Tagore had worn a bikini in her film An Evening In Paris (1967). Saif's sister Soha too donned a bikini in her film Mr Joe B Carvalho (2014) and his wife Kareena Kapoor has worn them in her films. Amrita wants her daughter to be like her and not the Pataudis. Producer Karan Johar is keen on getting the bikini scenes out of the film hence the delay in announcing the cast of SOTY 2. Amrita wants Sara to be known for more her acting chops than her body," DNA quoted a source as saying.
Interest in Sara Ali Khan has been high ever since she made an appearance at an Ambani soiree some years ago. She was then studying at Columbia University in USA. Later, she was reported to have been approached for a film - this was shot down by Ms Singh who clarified it was she who was in talks for a role and not her daughter. Now, it seems that Sara Ali Khan is finally ready for the spotlight.
Amrita Singh is the star of films like Mard, Chameli Ki Shaadi, Raju Ban Gaya Gentleman and Aaina. She had a pivotal role in 2014 hit 2 States. Saif Ali Khan was recently seen in Rangoon.
