2021 kicked off to an exciting start for showbiz star Sajal Aly. In January this year, the actor took the internet by storm when it was confirmed that she would be joining the cast of TV producer Jemima Goldsmith’s What’s Love Got To Do With It. Soon after, reports suggested that Bollywood A-lister Shabana Azmi had also been roped in for the project, alongside Lily James, Shahzad Latif and Emma Thompson. Just when we were able to digest the news, Jemima and Sajal once again set social media on fire, after uploading pictures with each other from the sets of the forthcoming film. The film is being helmed by Indian film-maker Shekhar Kapoor.
