We had earlier reported that Saif Ali Khan’s daughter, Sara Ali Khan will be marking her Bollywood debut with Abhishek Kapoor’s Kedarnath and Ekta Kapoor will be backing the project along with KriArj Entertainment.
Ekta mulled on a number of ideas with her cousin Gattu (Abhishek Kapoor) before they finalized Kedarnath. “When we heard the story, we knew this was it. It’s Sara’s debut opposite Sushant. That makes it a fresh pair and adds an edge to the project. Kedarnath is an emotional and riveting tale that blends India’s beauty with a love story from the heartland,” says Ekta.
Virendra Arora of KriArj Entertainment said, “It was a matter of time before Balaji Motion Pictures and KriArj Entertainment joined hands and nothing better than Kedarnath for that. Shobha and Ekta Kapoor are inspiring figures. We take pride in joining forces with them and can’t wait to take the film on floors. Abhishek, we’re confident, will create something special for the audience.”
The film stars Sushant Singh Rajput in the lead role and is slated to go on floors this August. The love story is set in the course of a pilgrimage in the hilly terrains of Kedarnath, one of the most prominent Lord Shiva shrines.
