 It would be disastrous  for Amrita’s daughter Sara Ali Khan to do  a remake  of her mother’s most iconic. Sara  should not even  go anywhere near Chameli Ki Shaadi.  It would be  like Twinkle Khanna re-doing her  mother Dimple’s  Bobby, or Soha Ali Khan in a  new-age  version of her gorgeous  mom SharmilaTagore’s  Amar Prem. Or Mala Sinha’s daughter Pratibha  encoring her  mother’s Dhool  Ka  Phool.

Sara Ali Khan has just begun  her career.  Her  first two  films Kedarnath and Simmba  reveal her  to be  natural-born camera-friendly  vivacious and spontneaous. But she’s no Amrita Singh. Not yet. So let’s not push  it.
