Sara Ali Khan belongs to illustrious film family which includes her father Saif Ali Khan, mother Amrita Singh, aunt Soha Ali Khan, grandmother Sharmila Tagore and step-mother Kareena Kapoor Khan, when asked Sara what she has learnt from her family members, she said, “I think Kareena is very professional lady and the way she does her work is really amazing so by seeing her, I want to imbibe her professionalism and apart from her, I have learnt a lot about history from my father and my grandmother have taught me about politics. My mother often tells me how to dress up and how to behave among people.”
Sara Ali Khan shares close bond with Janhvi Kapoor who made her Hindi film debut with ‘Dhadak’ earlier this year, when asked Sara whether she considers Janhvi as her contender for best female debut trophy this year, Sara said, “Not at all. I think that all of us are just here to do our jobs and we are really no one to decide anything. She has done amazingly. I have seen ‘Dhadak’ and I thought she was fantastic in it. Everybody has loved her work and I hope that people will like my work too, god willing and then the rest is whatever happens.”
Sara Ali Khan has two big releases in December 2018. After release of ‘Kedarnath’, Sara next will be seen in Rohit Shetty’s ‘Simmba’ opposite Ranveer Singh, when asked Sara whether she feels any sort of pressure to carry forward her family’s legacy in films, she said, “I think pressure will be always there but people also tell me that it was easy for you because you have got an opportunity to work in two films despite anyone seeing your work so, I think there are two sides to every aspect. There is pressure on me but at the same time, there are benefits as well from which I can’t run away. Its huge thing for me that Abhishek (Kapoor) sir and Rohit (Shetty) sir gave me an opportunity to work in their films. I feel blessed that I have two films lined up for release this year and I think I have put in my effort to do the best so, now it’s up to the audience whether they like my work or not.”
