The producer of the film, Karan Johar was really impressed with Kiara’s performance in Lust Stories and was keen on casting her in Rohit’s directorial but somehow things didn’t pan out accordingly and Kiara’s loss became Sara’s gain!
On the work front, Kiara Advani was recently seen in Shershaah and which was a biopic of Indian Army Captain, Vikram Batra who martyred during the Kargil war in 1999.
The beauty received immense praise from critics as well as her fans from across the world for her performance in the film. She’ll be next seen in Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 opposite Kartik Aaryan.
