Sara Ali Khan to star in ‘Cocktail 2’?

Sahar Junejo


Sara Ali Khan is slowly becoming a staple in Bollywood franchises. After ‘Love Aaj Kal 2’ and ‘Coolie No. 1’, she is rumoured to now be joining ‘Cocktail 2’, making up for losing ‘Angrezi Medium’ to Radhika Madan.

“Sara was almost roped in for ‘Angrezi Medium’ but eventually, dates didn’t work out. Dinesh Vijan really likes her screen presence and feels Sara is a brilliant performer, so he has been wanting to work with her. Now, when Maddock Films was planning to make the next instalment in the ‘Cocktail’ (2012) franchise, they bounced the idea off to Sara. The actress has liked the concept of ‘Cocktail 2’ and will mostly step into Deepika Padukone’s shoes for the sequel.”, a source told Pinkvilla.

The news is far from an official announcement as discussions are still ongoing, but Khan is eager to join the project. “The modalities are being worked out currently. But Sara has given her go ahead. After ‘Coolie No. 1’, she will finish Aanand L Rai’s next so her dates will be free from April next year. Along with ‘Cocktail 2’, she’s in talks for another movie that’s being directed by a filmmaker who makes rather unconventional films.”, the source added.
