Indians have a pretty good knack when it comes to celebrating our hundreds of festivals. And our Bollywood celebrities aren't spared from such days of joy. You all know that the whole of India is celebrating Makar Sankranti today on January 14, 2019. And yesterday, on January 13, 2018, we celebrated the festival of crops- Lohri.

Sara Ali Khan also celebrated Lohri last night with her mother, Amrita Singh and ace-designer, Sandeep Khosla, and others. Dressed up in silk kurta and Patiala salwar, Sara looked ethereal. She took to her Instagram stories and shared a few snaps from the celebrations. She wrote, "Lo aa gayi Lohri re" atop one of her stories, and she captioned the other as, "Happy Lohri." Take a look:
In a recent interview, Sara Ali Khan's mother, Amrita Singh shared how does she feel after her daughter's growing popularity and two successful hits, one after the other. She was quoted as saying, "That will be the ultimate day. Isn’t it the biggest achievement for any parent to see their kids get such recognition? Sara is a born actor. She would always do those pretty things in front of the mirror. We knew that she would definitely become an actress."
Amrita Singh, in another interview, shared what advice she has given to Sara. The yesteryear actress revealed, "It’s a job where you just have to be honest with your emotions. I have asked Sara to love the camera because if you give it that much love and respect, it will love you back." She further added, "I hope Sara does really well in life. I want her to stay extremely grounded, focussed and committed to her work. It’s a tough job at the end of the day. So, she should just keep moving ahead and do the right kind of films."

Post Simmba's succesful run and its continuing roar at the box-office, Sara said to an online portal, "My celebrations are interviews. I am not being funny, it’s true! It has been so hectic for the past three weeks, working on Simmba, that the only time one gets to internalise what has happened is during interviews. There is nothing more beautiful than celebrating with people who make you what you are. I think I am what I am because of the media and the audiences. I went incognito to watch the film in theatres. That was a celebration!"
In the same interview, describing her Bollywood journey so far, Sara said, "The only thing I needed was to see myself on screen first. I understand that the opinions of my parents, friends, seniors, and audiences matter a lot. Seeing the appreciation, I feel a duty now. Your battles keep changing as there are new challenges. Now the challenge is not searching for acceptance. I have done Kedarnath and Simmba and I've worked hard, done my best and also received 80 per cent of praise. 20 per cent is good karma and they know I am a sweet person and they will not write me off."
Earlier, in an interview with DNA, Sara revealed her mom, Amrita Singh’s reaction after watching her daughter's debut film. She had said, “Mom had heard the narration and she had also seen some rushes. But she still cried in the climax, so that was a big one for me.” (Don't Miss: Sushmita Sen Teaches Beau Rohman Shawl How To Say 'I Love You' In Bengali, He Teaches Her Kashmiri)
