According to the reports by Mid-Day, Amrita has asked Karan and Rohit to make sure that Sara has a meaty role to play in the film.
A source revealed to Mid-Day, “The movie has a message about women’s safety, with an emphasis on Sara’s character. While the leading lady in the Telugu original served only as the love interest, her character will be more involved in the story.”

Well, we totally understand what Amrita might be feeling at this point as she doesn’t want to compromise with her daughter’s career at any given point and ‘Simmba’ is going to be her launch pad.
