"Amrita wants her daughter to be like her and not the Pataudis."
Bollywood actress Amrita Singh has told filmmakers of Student of The Year 2 that daughter Sara Ali Khan will not wear a bikini in the film. She has reportedly given them an ultimatum on the matter: no bikini scenes or her daughter is out of the film.
DESIblitz recently reported how Sara Ali Khan would feature in three bikini scenes in the film. However, the budding actress’ mother, Amrita Singh, found the idea to be an issue.
Reports say that Amrita Singh appeared quite unhappy when she learned about the nature of the scenes. Therefore, she delivered the ultimatum to the producers.
A source revealed: “Once she heard the scenes, Amrita said no as she feels that she’s not a part of the Pataudis after her divorce from Saif Ali Khan.
“His mother Sharmila Tagore had worn a bikini in her film ‘An Evening In Paris’ . Saif’s sister Soha too donned a bikini in her film ‘Mr Joe B Carvalho’  and his wife Kareena Kapoor has worn them in her films.
“Amrita wants her daughter to be like her and not the Pataudis. Producer Karan Johar is keen on getting the bikini scenes out of the film, hence the delay in announcing the cast of ‘SOTY2’. Amrita wants Sara to be known more for her acting chops than her body.”
Student of the Year 2 acts as the debut of the starlet as she begins her acting career. Therefore, it’s understandable as to why Amrita Singh expressed her concerns to producers.
The willingness of Karan Johar to remove the bikini scenes suggest he does not consider it a major issue. A compromise between Johar and Amrita could well be reached. Thus enabling Sara Ali Khan to still partake in the movie but with no bikini.
Both Amrita and Karan Johar have yet to comment on the reports.
It appears fans will find out the conclusion of the ultimatum once the Student of the Year 2 cast is officially announced.
