Akshay, Dhanush Too Old To Be Cast Opposite Sara? Not Quite



There is a hue  and cry in a section of  the  social media about Akshay Kumar being too old to be  cast opposite Sara Ali Khan in Aanand Rai’s  new project Atrangi Re.

 But the fact  is, Aanand Rai isn’t casting Sara Ali Khan as  the conventional  romantic heroine  in  Atrangi Re.

 Says an informed source, “Aanand  knows exactly  what he’s doing. If you remember in Raanjhana when he  had cast  Sonam Kapoor opposite Dhunush there  was a hue and cry over the odd casting. In Atrangi Re  the age difference between Akshay and Sara  will be completely justified.”

 Of late, it is true that Akshay Kumar’s heroines are  getting younger  by the week. He was cast opposite  29-year old Kriti Sanon  in  Housefull 4 and prior to that  Bhumi Pednekar was only 28 when she  did Toilet Ek Prem Katha  with Akshay.

Filmmakers are  looking for  intelligent sensible ways of casting young heroines  opposite aging superstars, like Salman Khan who was all set to star  in  an age-challenged romantic  film  entitled Insha Allah directed by Sanjay Bhansali  with Alia Bhatt which got shelved. In the  just-released Jawani Jaaneman  Alaya Furniturewalla who is  Saif’s daughter’s age , plays  his daughter while  Saif’s real-life daughter  Sara Ali Khan who is all of 24 is cast in a very unusual relationship with 52-year  old Akshay Kumar.
