In an old interview with Vogue, Sara gave the real reason to choose acting, "The reason for which I have chosen to become an actor is the fact that I aspire for versatility in the genres of films that I do and in the kind of roles that I portray, and I don't think that you can necessarily have a lot of screen time in every single film that you are a part of. I think sometimes you do films because there are certain directors that you want to work with or there is a certain genre that you want to be a part of and while of course, in time and role and importance to the narrative are things that actors do consider and things that I consider as well."

"I think a balance in the kind of films I do and versatility in the roles that I can portray are also very important deciding factors for me. I was very keen to work with Rohit Sir, I am huge fan of the genre of work that he does and I think that it was a different opportunity for me than Kedarnath. Going forward, I think that of course, one does aspire for author backed roles and great characters to portray. I think that somewhere down the line the movie business is a collaborative one and sometimes there are films and stories that you want to be a part of even if you don't have a lot of screen time, so that's why I decided to be part of Simmba and Rohit sir was nice enough to cast me in it," she added.
