Kedarnath: Sara Ali Khan’s debut in trouble due to tiff between the director and the producers

Sara Ali Khan in Kedarnath

‘Kedarnath’ is surely one of the most awaited films of the year. The movie will mark the debut of Saif Ali Khan and Amrita Singh’s daughter Sara Ali Khan. However, looks like we won’t get to see Sara on the big screen this year.

Reportedly, there’s a tiff between director Abhishek Kapoor and producers KriArj Entertainment and T-Series due to major financial and creative differences. It is said that Abhishek has been interfering in the producers’ financial decisions and has also been delaying the film. Reports also suggest that the movie has gone over-budget and that is because of Abhishek’s unprofessionalism and the fact that he as a director is disorganised.

An insider has stated , “KriArj Entertainment and T-Series decided to come on-board since they believed in the film and in Abhishek Kapoor’s vision. However, as ‘Kedarnath’ unfolded several issues pertaining the dates of the talent, prep time and delays in the film’s delivery began cropping up. Abhishek replaced several of the crew members and technicians at the very last minute. Despite investing a huge some of funding into the project, ‘Kedarnath’ was going way over-budget owing to Gattu’s constant unreasonable demands. He not only delayed the shoot of the film by six months but also majorly interfered in the film’s financial planning and overall business workings. Abhishek also demanded that a higher price be quoted for the music rights and this despite T-Series being music moguls and being the best in the music industry.”

“Deciding a film’s release date should be the producers call since they are the one’s investing huge sums into the project. However, Abhishek interfered in that as well and went on to announce a release date on Twitter without consulting KriArj Entertainment who were against releasing the film on the same date as ‘Zero’. There were also rumors of Abhishek Kapoor not allowing KriArj to sign Sara Ali Khan for another film they were in talks for and pressurised the studio to drop the film. It came to a point where the makers refused to put up with Kapoor’s arm twisting. For now ‘Kedarnath’ is on hold until everything is clear on papers,” added the source.

Earlier too there have been reports that ‘Kedarnath’ won’t release this year, even though director Abhishek Kapoor had tweeted that it will hit the screens on December 21, 2018. It did surprise us as SRK’s ‘Zero’ too is announced to be releasing on the same day. Plus, the fact that only Abhishek and none of the other official handles tweeted the same, also tickled our brains.

With all this brewing, we wonder what will happen to Sara’s debut venture. (Also Read: EXCLUSIVE: Will ‘Kedarnath’ be pushed to 2019 to avoid clash with SRK’s movie?)

To Sridevi with love: You took away the beauty of 'beautiful' today

Dear Sridevi,

My introduction to you has to be credited to the black and white television set that was the most pride-worthy thing about our drawing room during my childhood. The local cable service provider frequently played songs from ‘Roop Ki Rani Choron Ka Raja’. And I will be honest; ours wasn’t love at first sight.

In 2001 or 2002, I happened to watch ‘Mr. India’. A ten-year-old girl then, I wasn’t bothered about it being one of the first science fiction Hindi films, to be honest. But I could go on and looking at you, as you threw some of your magical and smile and giggled, ‘Kehte Hai Mujhko, Hawa Hawai’. I later knew, they named it iconic. And why forget ‘Kaate Nahi Kat Te’? You, for the first time, painted before my naive eyes how craving for one’s beloved looked like. That was when I truly fell in love with you.

It has taken me some time to discover your best works. From your effortless double role in ‘Chaalbaaz’ to Chandni, which thanks to you, went many notched higher than being just another romantic film, from ‘Lamhe’ which is arguably Yash Chopra’s best film ever to ‘Judaai’, your last film before the voluntary hibernation from films that you took, I’ve more than plenty to tell you why I adore you so much. Alas, you’re gone too soon and I didn’t write this earlier.

In a country where majority of audience obsesses over Hindi films, many wouldn’t know how much volume you added to the Southern school of cinema. Who can forget your winning act a rescued patient of retrogade amnesia in ‘Moondram Pirai’ or ’16 Vayathinile’, which can be easily called an all-time cult in Tamil cinema? Ram Gopal Varma‘s immense fondness for you is known to all. ‘Kshanam Kshanam’ is probably one of Varma’s most high-rated films, and one of your best works in Telugu films as well. I could go on and on about this.

For 15 long years, you kept yourself away from the magic of big screen. We all wondered, how and why! Now I come to realise, you just switched roles. In a world where relationships are fragile and purpose is so often lost, you figured your priorities and devoted your time to what you held dearest; your family.

And when you returned with ‘English Vinglish’, I rejoiced your second innings. In fact, this was a new you. The you who embraced her age, her wisdom and was filled with a hunger for doing the new. Little did we know, the brief race would come to an end with ‘Mom’.

A million times, I’ve wanted to be as beautiful as you. As expressive, graceful, majestic, charming as you. But today, as a part of childhood dies down with you, I want to be as dutiful and as confident a woman that you’ve been. I want to be as fierce as you were with your choices and I want to be as much capable of loving as you were.

Dear Sridevi, against the eyes of ordinary girls, you painted a fairytale. With you leaving us behind, beauty won’t be beauty anymore. But you’ll be beautiful, and we will never love you less.

-With love,
Just one more woman who wished to be you.
