Saif Ali Khan’s daughter Sara Ali Khan is set to make her Bollywood debut in Abhishek Kapoor’s Kedarnath. Sara will be paired opposite Sushant Singh Rajput.
However, daddy Saif revealed how he felt about Sara making her debut, he said,
A little nervous. Fear is the most driving factor in the industry. Why would she want that for herself? Look at where she studied. After having done that, why wouldn’t she want to live and work in New York, rather than do this? I am not looking down on acting, it’s just it is not the most stable profession. And everyone lives in constant fear. And there is no guarantee that despite doing your best, you will succeed. This is not the life, any parent would want for their children.
Furthermore, he added,
I remember years ago we’d gone for a stage show abroad and while I was on the stage with Salman and other actors, Sara was standing behind the stage curtain and looking at us. I knew then that she wanted this for herself. Being on stage and people shouting her name.
Who would Sara talk to about things related to movies and Saif replied,
I think she would come to me.
He also spilled beans whether Sara would talk to Kareena about it or not.
To this, Saif said,
No. She’d look up to her for different reasons. The other day she and some of her friends had come over and they were looking at Kareena and I am certain they all want to emulate her and be a diva.
Saif revealed that he was not a part of movie selection process for Sara.
No, I wasn’t involved in it. Look, I am there if she needs to ask or talk to me about anything. I know what she is doing and we talk about films just like we do about everything else. You know, in our house on the dinner table, the conversations are not usually about films. And the other day Sara and Ibrahim had come over and she was asking me about films and I thought ‘oh we are that family now. Are we really doing this? Ibrahim was feeling left out and after a while, he said, ‘I have been offered an ad and I might just do it.’ I looked at him and said, ‘Wait a minute, I don’t know anything about this. I need details.’ And he said, ‘It’s an ad for suiting,
On whether Ibrahim has worn a suit and Saif replied,
Yes, once I think. But yes, he is over 6 ft tall, and he looks good in one. But I told him we would discuss if he could do that.
