On Wednesday, Sara wore a white Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla saree-inspired look at Cannes Film Festival 2023 red carpet. While the reaction to her first two Cannes looks – a beige lehenga for the festival's opening day and a black gown at the opening night party – were lukewarm, fans gave Sara the thumbs up for her third look at Cannes 2023. The actor had taken to Instagram to share a series of pictures of herself posing in the designer look.

Reacting to the photos, many had compared Sara to her grandmother, veteran actor Sharmila Tagore, who is known for her stylish outfits and striking hairstyles. One fan commented, "That Sharmila Tagore hair." Another said, "Replica of your grandma Sharmila Tagore ji with her 60s-70s look in your first picture… breathtaking." Another commented, "Sara and white – what a combination."

Sara was last seen in Gaslight with Chitrangda Singh and Vikrant Massey. She is awaiting the release of Laxman Utekar's romantic comedy Zara Hatke Zara Bachke, which features her alongside Vicky Kaushal for the first time. The film will be released in theatres on June 2.

She also has Prime Video's Ae Watan Mere Watan due for release later this year. The period drama is backed by Karan Johar. Sara had recently also wrapped up Murder Mubarak. In the Homi Adajania film, she will be seen along with Karisma Kapoor, Dimple Kapadia and Pankaj Tripathi, among others.
