A daughter is the most precious gift of life, which God has ever created! She is someone you can laugh with, dream with, and love with all your heart and she is the cause of your sleeplessness. The parents of a baby girl are always happy. She brings pride to her father when she cooks his favourite meal and joy to her mother when she excels in her career. And Bollywood's veteran actress, Sharmila Tagore shares an exactly similar relationship with her daughters, Soha Ali Khan and Saba Ali Khan. While Soha has followed her mother's footsteps and has joined the Bollywood industry, Saba chose a different path.

Before we take you further into the story, let us take a look at Sharmila Tagore's filmy love story with late cricket sensation, Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi. The two were complete opposites of each other, ruling their own kingdoms, but they had felt the instant connection when they had met for the first time in the year 1965. While they were madly in love with each other, they had to face a lot of difficulties as they were from different religions. But no force in the world can ever stop lovebirds from loving each other, similarly, Sharmila ji and Mansoor ji's love had conquered all the hurdles of life.
Sharmila's daughter, Saba often shares glimpses of her family's cute and unseen moments. On December 28, 2020, Saba took to her Instagram handle and posted unseen childhood pictures with her mother, Sharmila ji.

Sharmila ji had talked about her husband, Mansoor ji's biopic in an interview with Free Press Journal. She had said, "Well it will depend on who the captains of the ship are – the producers and director. It is a good story, I think, with all the twists and the turns in his life….father’s death, losing his eye after which his average came down from 60 to 30.To receive such a blow at such a young age….I don’t think anyone else has been able to make those adjustments and that kind of an impact with one eye. He not only batted but also fielded after the eye accident. I think he was a wonderful sportsperson. God knows, what he’d have achieved if he had both his eyes."
In an interview with Rediff.com, Sharmila ji had talked about leading a graceful life. She had shared, "Looking back, I am grateful everything went smoothly in my life. Anything could have gone wrong. But it didn’t. My children grew up to be self-sufficient. All three are successful in their work. When Saif came into films, he had no family backing. He was thrown out of Rahul Rawail’s film. I rang up Rahul but it didn’t happen. Eventually Yash Chopra launched him in Parampara. He survived and became successful on his own. Soha, too, pays her own rent. Saba is also working. All my three children live within their means. Soha is not trying to live like Saif. They take holidays, they enjoy life."
