'I'm the one being chosen rather than me choosing'
Mumbai: Sara Ali Khan's debut in films was welcomed by both the audiences and industry insiders, leading her to the opportunity of working with celebrated directors like Rohit Shetty, Imtiaz Ali and David Dhawan.
The young actor, who made foray in Bollywood last year with Abhishek Kapoor's Kedarnath and went on to star in Shetty's Simmba, believes she is fortunate that she is getting a chance to collaborate with big names so early in her career.
She will next be seen in Ali's Love Aaj Kal 2, co-starring Kartik Aaryan, and Dhawan's Coolie No 1 remake, opposite Varun Dhawan.
"I am thankful Imtiaz sir and David sir chose me for their project. I don't think I am in the position yet to be deciding as much as I am in the position to kind of get and then decide. People come to me with a project," Sara said.
The 24-year-old actor said her aim is to establish herself as a versatile performer. "For me, there needs be a strong reason why you want to do a film. Versatility excites me. The song and dance aspect of commercial films is something I love and at the same time I love performing, feeling the emotions."
"The reasons why I would do a Simmba or Coolie No 1 and Kedarnath or Imtiaz Ali's next film, is different. But either way, I am the one being chosen rather than me choosing it. I am not there yet."
Sara said working with these established directors has been a great learning experience.
"At Imtiaz sir's office we would have readings two-three weeks before we started and with David sir I get the scenes, I am doing in the morning, I don't have a script. It is such a different experience but it is all fun."
