Actress Soha Ali Khan visited Indian craft and design hub exhibition on Friday in Mumbai. During media interaction, Soha said that she feels worried when people praise picture of her daughter Inaaya.
Soha Ali Khan’s daughter Inaaya Naumi Kemmu and her nephew Taimur Ali Khan are extremely popular on social networking sites. Recently, Soha uploaded a picture of Inaaya on Instagram so when asked Soha what she feels about immense popularity of Inaaya and Taimur, Soha in typical Indian mother style replied, “They are too small now. I don’t understand about their fan following but of course, she is my daughter so I find her cute. People around me get worried because recently, I uploaded a picture of Inaaya on Instagram but they thought that she will catch the evil eye but she was looking very cute so it made me do that but after that, I also felt worried because a lot of people praised that picture of her’s then I applied kohl on her forehead. I think Taimur and Inaaya are too sweet, young and innocent. I feel bad for them because whenever Taimur goes with his parents, media reach there to click his photographs and I want to urge media that please don’t use flash while clicking their pictures”
Talking about a response to her first book ‘The Perils of Being Moderately Famous’, Soha said, “I really happy that we are now reprinting it for the third time and it’s doing well. It has been stamped as national bestseller so I am excited and now people are asking me what I am writing next so there is a feeling of pressure because whatever I will write next has to be good”
Recently, many cricketers and film personalities attended ‘Tribute to Tiger’ event organised by Bishan Singh Bedi in New Delhi in the memory of late former cricketer Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi, talking about the event, Soha said, “Bishan Singh Bedi who is close friend of my father hosted an event in the memory of him named ‘Tribute to Tiger’ through his trust which also celebrated its silver jubilee, therefore, Aamir Khan saab, Naseeruddin Shah saab, Yuvraj Singh, Ashish Nehra, Kapil Dev sir and many other cricketers graced the event so, it was really good celebration.”
Soha Ali Khan and her husband Kunal Kemmu along with producer Ronnie Scewvala are planning to make a biopic on eminent lawyer Ram Jethmalani, talking about the status of the film, Soha said, “I can assure that it will happen and god willing, we will start shooting it in 2018. We have partnered with Ronnie Screwvala for that film and I think we have found our director as well for the film but all of us know that till the movie is made nothing is ready so one doesn’t want to spoke before appropriate”
When asked Soha which actors are being considered for the biopic , she said, “Now, age of Ram Jethmalani is almost 95 and he had career that spanned more than seven decades so in two and half hour film we will choose which decade to include in the film according to that, we have to cast the actor. We are considering a number of actors for that role but we will be announced that once it gets finalized”
Jethmalani – a prolific lawyer-politician, who announced his retirement in September, fought several high-profile cases, representing many controversial clients from stockbroker Harshad Mehta to former Prime Minister P V Narasimha Rao, among others.
Ram Jethmalani biopic is in scripting stage and makers soon will announce a director for the same.
