Punit Malhotra’s Student Of The Year 2 starring Sara Ali Khan, Tiger Shroff and Tara Sutaria is said to have three bikini scenes featuring Sara.

But her mother Amrita Singh feels that since she’s never worn one, Sara should not begin her career doing that either.

Says a source, “Once she heard the scenes, Amrita said no as she feels that she’s not a part of the Pataudis after her divorce from Saif Ali Khan. His mother Sharmila Tagore had worn a bikini in her film An Evening In Paris (1967). Saif’s sister Soha too donned a bikini in her film Mr Joe B Carvalho (2014) and his wife Kareena Kapoor has worn them in her films. Amrita wants her daughter to be like her and not the Pataudis. Producer Karan Johar is keen on getting the bikini scenes out of the film hence the delay in announcing the cast of SOTY2. Amrita wants Sara to be known for more her acting chops than her body.”
