Director Rohit Shetty has said that Saif Ali Khan's daughter Sara was made for masala films. Sara, whose debut film Kedarnath is yet to be released, has been cast by Shetty in Simmba.
Speaking to Mid-day, Shetty said, "When I met Sara for the first time, I realised she is a hardcore commercial heroine. She is made for masala films."
Shetty also revealed that the young actress approached him for a film. "Sara approached me saying she wanted to work with me. I thought she'd be perfect for Simmba. She'll match Ranveer Singh's craziness because her character in the film is such," said Shetty.
Kedarnath was recently in the news as former UTV head honcho Ronnie Screwvala took over the production rights of the film from KriArj Entertainment, T-Series and Balajai Motion Picture Studios.
