Sara Ali Khan, Sushant Singh Rajput Start Prep For Next Schedule Of Kedarnath! Is This The Dhadak Effect?

Could Dhadak's release date be the reason why Kedarnath makers are speeding up the process?

Sara Ali Khan and  Sushant Singh Rajput had started shooting for their upcoming film, Kedarnath, directed by Abhishek Kapoor in August this year. The film is important as it marks the debut of Saif Ali Khan and Amrita Singh‘s daughter, Sara. The duo had been shooting in the holy city of Kedarnath for the first month and pics of them shooting in the hills had been surfacing on the internet every now and then. In early October, Abhishek took to his instagram profile to announce the first schedule wrap up, which turned out to be a little earlier than expected. We wonder why! Anyway, the cast and crew had returned to Mumbai and reports suggested that they would start shooting for the film early next year in the city. Looks like the Kedarnath team has started prepping up for the next schedule as Sara and Sushant were snapped earlier in the day heading for a script reading session for the film. We wonder if the preponement of the second schedule had anything to do with Karan Johar officially announcing the release date of Jahnvi Kapoor and Ishaan Khatter starrer Dhadak.

According to a report in Mid-Day, the shooting of the film had been extended because of one crucial sequence which required the makers to shoot it in a bigger and grander canvas. Due to abysmal climatic conditions during August-September in Kedarnath,  Kapoor decided to recreate the set in Mumbai, which further pushed the release of the film. Reports thus indicated that the film would hit screens in December 2018. However, with Karan Johar releasing the first look posters of Dhadak a few days ago, introducing Jahnvi Kapoor whilst declaring the release date to be July 6, it makes us wonder if the makers of Kedarnath were pressurized on speeding up the process. After all, Jahnvi and Sara have been pitted against each other from the very beginning— right from the time rumours of them debuting in Bollywood around the same time started doing the rounds. Could it then be that Kapoor and his team are planning to hasten Sara’s Kedarnath in order to wrap up its shoot before Jahnvi’s Dhadak? Well, that only time will tell.

Meanwhile, both Dhadak and Kedarnath are love stories. While Dhadak is the Hindi remake of the popular Marathi film Sairat, directed by Nagraj Manjule, Kedarnath is a love story of a young couple set against the backdrop of pilgrimage, and the dangerous natural calamity that hit Uttarakhand in 2013. Janhvi’s Dhadak has had multiple posters and first looks out and is currently the talk of the town. If reports are to be believed, Sara has been quite stressed ever since and producer Ekta Kapoor even took her to a temple to calm her nerves. Well, it’s definitely turning out to be one interesting competition between the two newcomers. Don’t you think? Let us know in the comments’ section below.
