Sara Ali Khan and Janhvi Kapoor are now in the running to play Ranveer Singh’s heroine in the upcoming Simmba.

Earlier Janhvi had almost been finalised for the Rohit Shetty directorial, but now with the Kedarnath fracas having hit Sara’s work front, a new window could have opened for her.

Janhvi’s launch vehicle Dhadak is being helmed by Dharma Productions and is slated for a July 20, 2018 release. Meanwhile, there’s no clarity on when Sara’s debut film Kedarnath will hit screens. In fact, if Sara clinches the lead in Simmba, Kedarnath might even lose the distinction of being Saif’s daughter’s debut venture.

Interestingly, Simmba is also helmed by Dharma Productions, so it’s quite possible that they would want Sara, and not Janhvi (who already has a Dharma film in hand) for their action-packed saga.

This development comes hot on the heels of Kedarnath being stalled.

The high-handed and haughty Abhishek Kapoor (Gattu) has deferred the release of Kedarnath, and we also told you last afternoon that he will now have to battle it out in the Bombay High Court.

Obviously, this has led to a lot many producers knocking at the lovely Sara Ali Khan’s doors. She is, we hear, flooded with offers. The star kid is believed to be a lava of talent and naturally, filmmakers are seizing this opportunity (created by Gattu's foolishness) to have the credit of launching her. Will Dharma Productions beat everyone to get Sara for Simmba?

It’s quite possible since Sara has put her nose in the front. But will she reach the winning post first? It’s a very hotly run race and we’re watching it with bated breath.
