Dhanush stated on Koffee Shots With Karan that he was a “little worried” when he initially learned that Sara Ali Khan had been cast in Atrangi Re because he didn’t think she could do the character justice. In fact, he told filmmaker Aanand L Rai about his worries.

Speaking with host Karan Johar, Dhanush said, “To be very honest, I was a little worried. It’s such a big role and a very difficult character to play. I asked Aanand ji, ‘How many films has she done?’ He told me 2 or 3 films, at that point of time. I was like, ‘Can she pull it off?’”

However, Aanand convinced Dhanush that there was something about Sara that was perfect for the role of Rinku Sooryavanshi. “Aanand ji kept telling me, ‘There is something I need and I see it in her.’ And he does. I don’t know how he cracks that. For some reason, out of nowhere, he brought me here to do Raanjhanaa. He had the conviction that this is my actor for the film. So, he must have seen something in her,” he said.

Sara made her acting debut in 2018 with Kedarnath. She has since acted in films such as Simmba, Love Aaj Kal, and Coolie No 1. Her sixth album is titled Atrangi Re. She will next be featured alongside Vicky Kaushal in Laxman Utekar’s film.
