Au­gust 12 has al­ways meant lots of cel­e­bra­tion for Sara Ali Khan. Af­ter all, it’s her birth­day. But this year, she doesn’t re­ally have fun on her mind. Rea­son? The debu­tante has kept aside her spe­cial day for the re­hearsals of a song that she has to shoot for the Ro­hit Shetty-di­rected Simmba “in a cou­ple of days”.

“This year, her plans are quite dif­fer­ent,” says an in­sider, close to the new­bie ac­tor. “Sara, who other­wise rings in her birth­day with friends and fam­ily, will spend the day re­hears­ing for a song from her up­com­ing film.”

Ap­par­ently, the ac­tor has ded­i­cated the en­tire day to “learn­ing the dance rou­tine for her film as the shoot date for the num­ber is near­ing”.

The in­sider adds, “The song that Sara is re­hears­ing for is an im­por­tant and big one. Al­though the mak­ers asked her to take an off for her birth­day, she has cho­sen to con­tinue re­hears­ing.”

Ac­tu­ally, for this, Sara has been fol­low­ing a gru­elling sched­ule for a cou­ple of weeks now — she doesn’t to in­ter­rupt that rhythm. “That’s why she doesn’t want to take a break and change her ‘dance rou­tine’ on her birth­day,” says the in­sider.

This is go­ing to be a very spe­cial year for Sara, as she is all set to make her big screen de­but with Ab­hishek Kapoor’s Kedar­nath, costar­ring Sushant Singh Rajput. Even be­fore its re­lease, she has bagged an­other big­gie — Simmba, op­po­site Ran­veer Singh.

“Sara is re­ally com­mit­ted to her work, and there’s a lot of ex­cite­ment [around her]. So, she is leav­ing no stone un­turned for her first films,” says the in­sider. Sara could not be reached for a com­ment.
