In a revelation by filmmaker Karan Johar, it has been disclosed that Sara Ali Khan was offered a song in the movie 'Liger,' featuring Ananya Panday and Vijay Deverakonda.
However, Sara politely declined the offer. 'Liger' faced challenges at the box office, and this decision by Sara adds an interesting layer to the behind-the-scenes dynamics of the film.
Talking about the same, Karan said: “I think Sara, we had asked you to do a song in the movie 'Liger' which you politely ran away from! You would have otherwise been in one of the songs in the film.”
Sara added: “You all addressed the Liger in the room, now let the Liger RIP.”
Directed by Puri Jagannadh, 'Liger - Saala Crossbreed' featured Vijay Deverakonda as the titular MMA fighter with a stammering problem, alongside Ananya Panday as his love interest. The film also starred Ramya Krishna and Ronit Roy in significant roles, with an extended cameo appearance by American boxer Mike Tyson. Unfortunately, 'Liger' faced both critical and commercial setbacks, marking it as a failure in the box office.
The actresses, Sara Ali Khan and Ananya Panday, shared the screen on 'Koffee With Karan,' the popular and witty talk show hosted by Karan Johar. Fans can catch the tongue-in-cheek banter and entertaining conversations between celebrities on the show, as it is available for streaming on Disney+ Hotstar.
