Sara Ali Khan, who will be appearing her jinxed Bollywood debut Kedarnath, will be next seen romancing Ranveer Singh in Simmba. Although, the actress was about to make her Bollywood debut this year, but due to controversies and internal conflicts, Abhishek Kapoor’s Kedarnath has been pushed to next year.
