After winning everyone’s hearts with her performances in movies Kedarnath and Singham, Sara Ali Khan is all set to impress her fans with her performance in the upcoming movie ‘Love Aaj Kal’, where she will be seen alongside Kartik Aaryan.
The trailer of the movie was released last month and it created a stir on social media. People gave mixed reactions to the trailer of the movie. Love Aaj Kal is a whirlwind love story between the lead characters Zoie and Veer being played Sara and Kartik.
Soon after the trailer of the movie was released, it started a meme fest on social media with creative minds coming up with hilarious jokes and memes. There was one particular scene from the movie, which didn’t go down well with the fans who trolled Sara Ali Khan for her ‘overacting’. However, Sara says she was actually crying while shooting for the scene.
Recently, talking to film journalist Anupama Chopra, Sara Ali Khan confessed that the trolls does affect her when they criticize her for her acting skills. She said:
“I don’t mind being trolled for being fat. I don’t mind if you troll me for wearing a cap. But I am here to act. That is my job. That is my profession. That is serious. So, when I am trolled for that, suddenly, with all the confidence still intact, it is harder for me to sit there and say ignore the trolls. For the first time, it actually kind of hurts. It hit me,”
Sara Ali Khan opened up about how the director of the movie Imtiaz Ali, prepared her for her character. She said:
“We were not allowed to see the monitor. So, I had no idea what it was looking like. I’ve spoken to Imtiaz sir about this and what’s also happened is the fact that I don’t look good in that. When it comes to trolling for overacting, I’ll be honest with you…not only was I acutely aware of what my character had to feel but Imtiaz sir made me feel exactly what Zoe had to feel at in that point of time,”
“That was not a ham shot on our part. I was really crying. I felt like how Zoe would have been feeling at that moment in time. I did what came to me organically at that point in time,”
Sara Ali Khan went on to make a very strong statement expressing how we always expect an actress to look perfect all the time. She said:
“It is not a pretty shot. It is the archetype of the heroine ki rote waqt, marte waqt, khate waqt…kuch bhi karo aapko acha lagna chahiye (You should always look good, even when you are crying or eating).”
However, Sara Ali Khan is hopeful that the fans will like her work in the movie, she said:
“It’s something that the audiences haven’t like, some of them. And those are the people that I do what I do for. So I think there is only learning to go from here. Here’s hoping there’s parts of the film that they do like and that I can make them happy and entertain them more and more in the future,”
Love Aaj Kal is slated to release on February 14. Sara Ali Khan will also be seen in Coolie No.1 with Varun Dhawan and Atrangi Re with Akshay Kumar and Dhanush.
