Saif Ali Khan and daughter Sara to star in a film together

The film will be based on a father-daughter relationship

By ELLE team  July 13th, 2018

As Sara Ali Khan readies herself for her debut film Kedarnath opposite Sushant Singh Rajput — and a sophomore effort in Simmba with Ranveer Singh — the young actor has already been signed on for another film where she will be teaming up with her father, Saif Ali Khan. Directed by Nitin Kakkar, the yet-to-be titled film will be based on the poignant relationship of a father and a daughter. How apt is that?

Yes. It is true that I am doing a film with Saif Ali Khan and Sara Ali Khan, but it is too early to say more than that. I narrated the story to both and they have seemed to like it. We are now working on their dates,” the director was quoted as saying. Saif confirmed, saying, “Nitin and I have been in talks for a film, but it’s in the early stages. We haven’t finalised it yet. The script is good.”

While Saif was last seen in Sacred Games, Netflix’s first original series from India, Sara is looking at a december 26 release for Simmba.

Seeing actors related by blood sharing space onscreen is always refreshing. Think: Amitabh Bachchan and Abhishek Bachchan, Pankaj Kapur and Shahid Kapoor, and the most recent example, Alia Bhatt and Soni Razdan, who teamed up in a mother-daughter role for Raazi. Are you excited about Sara and Saif’s upcoming collaboration? Tell us in the comments below.

Inside Sara’s luxurious bag collection:


Bottega Veneta Milano Uluru bag

This is Sara Ali Khan's favourite go-to bag, hands down. Whether she's trotting off to the gym or heading for a movie, this faithful companion constantly accompanies her everywhere. A grown-up choice for a young lady, but we suppose Sara inherited her love for the classics from her grand-mother, Sharmila Tagore.

Louis Vuitton Neverfull Tote

Arguably the most ubiquitous bag from the French luxury maison, Sara shares her obsession with celebrities from Reese Witherspoon to Diane Kruger, all fans of the roomy tote's ability to fit seemingly their whole world.

Sara is often seen bringing this bag as her +1 to parties, and we can only assume she's a fan of the brand's iconic intrecciato design. The bag's versatile design has won it fans in celebrities like Cameron Diaz and Kate Upton too. 

Christian Dior Miss Dior sling bag

Yet another classic sling bag beloved by stars like Charlize Theron and Marion Cotillard, Sara keeps this bright red beauty only for special events — like Shahid Kapoor's birthday bash. It's Dior, after all.

Tod's nylon tote

She's just about signed her debut film, but Sara Ali Khan is already proving her frequent flier credentials. The actress has found the ideal travel bag that fits everything and is weather proof. Are you taking notes?
