Sara Ali Khan opened up in an interview with Mid-day about the failure of her 2020 film Love Aaj Kal and the criticism she received for her acting in the film, saying that she takes responsibility of the fact that she didn’t deliver. Directed by Imtiaz Ali, the film also starred Kartik Aaryan in the lead alongside her.

Speaking about it, Sara said, “I take full responsibility for the fact that I didn’t deliver. Nevertheless, it really helped me. It could have been easy for me to go off-track. After the success of Kedarnath (2018) and Simmba (2018), one more box-office success and I could have gone daamadol (haywire). You never know.”

She also revealed that when she was offered Aanand L. Rai's Atrangi Re (2021), it left her surprised. “I called Aanand and told him, ‘Atrangi Re is a great script. This character is outstanding. Are you sure you don’t want to call Alia Bhatt (to do the role instead),’” Sara said, adding that she was nervous and the criticism for Love Aaj Kal took a toll on her.

Sara was last seen in the historical-drama Ae Watan Mere Watan, where she played the role of freedom fighter Usha Mehta. She will next be seen in Anurag Basu’s Metro In Dino, which also stars Aditya Roy Kapoor, Konkana Sen Sen, Pankaj Tripathi, Ali Fazal, Fatima Sana Shaikh, Neena Gupta, and Anupam Kher. It is scheduled to be released on November 29 this year.
