Initially rumoured to debut with Hrithik Roshan, Sara was then rumoured to have replaced Disha Patani opposite Tiger Shroff and was said to be making her debut with Karan Johar’s Student of the Year 2. However, later Disha clarified saying that no one has replaced her in the movie. “I am also reading this news. It is weird to read the news that says sometimes Sara sometimes me. I don’t know what’s going on,” Disha said.

Now, with a dead-end on both sides, reports suggest that the star kid who was being considered for Aamir Khan’s Thugs of Hindostan has lost out on the role as well. And well, if rumours are to be believed, Aditya Chopra is responsible for her not getting the film.

According to reports, it was Aditya Chopra that stopped Sara from being finalized for the role. She had apparently come down to YRF for a look test but was rejected by producer Aditya Chopra after her audition didn’t really do much for him. 

In the meanwhile, Dangal girl Fatima Sana Shaikh, who is one of the contenders for the role, also gave a look test for the movie and a picture of her have gone viral. The gorgeous girl looks starkly different from her Dangal avatar. Dressed in a black dhoti with a black blouse and silver oxidized jewelry, Fatima looks no less than a warrior in the picture.

Reports also suggest that actresses like Alia Bhatt, Shraddha Kapoor, Fatima Sana Shaikh, Kriti Sanon among others have been in the running for the role of the lead actress. However, Yash Raj Films, the movie’s production house hasn’t made any official announcements yet.
