After delivering hits with Kedarnath and Simmba, Sara Ali Khan faced a setback with her third film, Love Aaj Kal in 2020, where she was criticized for her acting skills. In an interview with Mid-Day, she reflected on the failure and admitted to being dishonest with the project.

During an interaction with Mayank Shekhar of Mid-Day, Sara spoke candidly about the film, calling it a mistake. When asked, “What was Love Aaj Kal?”, she acknowledged it was an error on her part. “I take full responsibility for the fact that I didn’t deliver. Nevertheless, it really helped me. It could have been easy for me to go off-track. After the success of Kedarnath and Simmba, one more box-office success and I could have gone daamadol. You never know,” she stated.

Sara admitted that the lack of appreciation for her work was challenging, but she was pleased that audiences accepted her through subsequent projects like Atrangi Re (2021) and Zara Hatke Zara Bachke (2023). She shared an anecdote about her nervousness before Atrangi Re. Sara said, “I called Aanand R. Lai and told him, ‘Atrangi Re is a great script. This character is outstanding. Are you sure you don’t want to call Alia Bhatt (to do the role instead)?’”

When asked why she doubted herself, Sara explained that it was due to her nervousness. However, taking on the role helped her regain confidence and bounce back.
