The snowcapped mountains of Kedarnath touched the traveller’s soul. She still remembers the first sun rays hitting her tired, cold face during pack up. Sara Ali Khan was often left awestruck to witness rainbows reflecting magically against the snowcapped mountains. Her heart was filled with pride when years ago she first witnessed her name on the silver screen. She thanked her director Abhishek Kapoor and writer, Kanika Dhillon for giving her Mukku. Most importantly, she thanked the Kedarnath (the film and the pilgrimage spot) for making her who she is today. She signs off her Insta post with a promise to visit in April.
Dressed in a yellow shirt and black track pants, Sara Ali Khan, in her trademark style says, “Namaste Darshako”. With the snowcapped mountains in the background, the actress shows the spot where she gave her first shot. There was a bench there where the actor sat in between shots and couldn’t help but shiver in the cold. “Woh hai Ameena ka ghar”, she says, pointing at a small house nestled atop. She goes on to show the point where a set was built for the film. Interacting with local women, seated next to her, Sara Ali Khan talks about a small shop which she frequented for tea and snacks.
The actress has often visited Kedarnath for pilgrimages with her mother, Amrita Singh and her friends. One can often feel the presence and blessings of Lord Shiva and Sara Ali Khan is no stranger to this.
