Further, Sara revealed that Kedarnath's director, Abhishek Kapoor sued her for Rs. 5 crore while she was still shooting for the film. The issue happened as she had signed Rohit Shetty's film, Simmba, and some dates of the two films coincided. She said:

T"hen some dates went upar-neeche, and I also signed Simmba. But now, there were three or four dates that were coinciding. And yeah, so I got sued for Rs 5 crore. I was very nervous, because I didn’t have Rs 5 crore. My grandfather, my mother’s father, was dying, in Delhi. My mother was with him. Ibrahim was in school. And I was served a ‘vakalatnaama’ at home. I didn’t know what to do."

Sara Ali Khan recalled how things were resolved between her and Abhishek Kapoor

Sara further revealed that she decided to send her management to court as she had to go to shoot, which the makers of Kedarnath were aware of as they were also on the same set. Sara, being Sara, decided to break the ice after this legal fight with her director, Abhishek. She asked him if he would like to have the 'famous coffee' made by her spot girl, and he agreed. Sara stated that her shoot went smoothly after the episode. 

Sara was further asked how the issues were resolved and if her management was sued instead of her. Sara stated that the matter was resolved when the two filmmakers had a meeting together. Rohit Shetty agreed to give three days to Abhishek Kapoor. Recalling those days, Sara stated that it was hectic as she had spent a lot of time flying from Hyderabad to Mumbai, as she was shooting the two films simultaneously. 

On the work front, Sara Ali Khan was last seen in the film, Ae Watan Mere Watan.
