Sara Khan: Comedy is an interesting genre but I want to do something challenging

Television actor Sara Khan, known for her show Dhoond Legi Manzil, will now be seen on the big screen

Sara Khan who will be seen in comedy films Aman Ki Asha and Maaya, Vanilla and Strawberries, says while she enjoys the genre, she would like to play a serious role as well. “Comedy is an interesting genre. I have finished two comedy films. I enjoyed it. But I want to take up something very challenging and play a very serious character,” said she.

Aman Ki Asha has been directed by Neeraj Pandey and stars Ali Zafar and Yami Gautam. Sara Khan said that she plays Yami’s sister in the film. “I was in Singapore and someone called me saying that that I am apt (for playing) Yami’s sister. I told them that I don’t play character artists. But they said I could call it a parallel lead. I found the character very interesting. It is a Neeraj Pandey story and I said that I would try it,” she said.

The film has been shot in London, which is the actor’s hometown. This made it more enjoyable for her. “I was brought up in London and the entire shoot was in London. We were there for a month. I loved the experience. We finished our schedule in 22 days. We faced a lot of challenges. But it was a very good experience,” she said.

She will also be seen in Maaya, Vanilla and Strawberries, which stars Fukrey actor Ali Fazal and has been directed by Ravi Rai.

Talking about the kind of roles she would want to play in her future films, Khan said she is looking for performance-oriented characters. “In movies, I would like to go for something like Devdas or Dor. That is something challenging. Everyone does glamorous roles. It is tough to get something which is completely acting-oriented. Sridevi, Madhuri Dixit, Shabana Azmi used to play these roles so beautifully,” she said.
