Everyone has the right to fall in love all over again if it doesn’t go right in the first instance. Sometimes you are head over heels with someone but find it difficult to admit and for others, it just works out! And that is exactly what happened for Saif Ali Khan. The Ole Ole star was married to Amrita Singh for over 13 years until they parted ways in 2004. It was years later, that Saif Ali Khan met Kareena Kapoor on the sets of Tashan and then? The rest as we all say, is history! (Do Read: Sara Ali Khan Mercilessly Trolled By Twitteratis For Calling Shah Rukh Khan 'Uncle', Video Inside)
Saif Ali Khan has two kids, Sara Ali Khan and Ibrahim Khan from his first marriage with Amrita Singh and their first kid, Sara needs no further introduction. The 23-year-old actress need not be termed as Saif Ali Khan’s daughter anymore, for she has proved her mettle as an actress in two Bollywood blockbusters, Kedarnath and Simmba. Apart from the films, it is her candid and honest interviews that makes us swoon over her like how! And the same happened when Sara Ali Khan became the cover girl for Vogue magazine for the month of April.
For the same, Sara Ali Khan opened up about the career choices that her abba, Saif Ali Khan is making and had also thanked stepmom, Kareena Kapoor Khan for this reason. The Pataudi princess shared, “For him, taking a step like Sacred Games is so admirable. He doesn’t care about what people have to say. He’s just out there to do his work to the best of his abilities. He and I would agree that he’s doing his finest acting now.” Sara further added, “He’s always just a phone call away… I am very thankful to Kareena [Kapoor Khan] because she makes my father happy.”
Sara Ali Khan further spoke about the similarities between her and her father, Saif and of course, nations’ favourite child, Taimur Ali Khan! The actress quipped, “He’s a lot like me—we’re both readers, we both like history, we’re both travellers. He is 25 years older than me, which isn’t a lot. I am right in between the age gap of Taimur [Ali Khan] and my father.” She also shared, “To be honest, I don’t get to see Taimur very often but every time I do he’s a bundle of happiness. When Taimur is happy, the whole room is happy. He is my blood and the source of my father’s joy.” (Must Read: Tiger Shroff And Disha Patani Twin In Blue For Their Dinner Date, Jackie Shroff Confirms Their Love)
In the same interview, Sara Ali Khan also shared about her biggest fear and mother, Amrita Singh, “I really don’t know what I’d do without my mother. My biggest fear is to not have immediate access to her. My mother is the reason I am aware of who is who in my life. She’s my reality check.” Reminiscing her childhood, Sara shared, “I was very good at studies, but I’ve always been a naughty child. It didn’t take my mom long to realise that she would never have the privilege to call a parent and say, ‘Keep your kid away from my daughter’ because her daughter was the menace."
What are Sara Ali Khan’s views on being papped every now and then? The beauty added, “I’m not complaining. I’m thankful to the paparazzi for portraying me the way they have.” Sara also shared, “I know that I’ve been given appreciation and recognition before I’ve done anything to deserve it. The only way I can repay that is to endeavour to do honest-enough work so that eventually people will think that I have deserved it. I did not ask for this much love or to be born in the family that I have.”
Coming back to Sara Ali Khan and her relationship with stepmom, Kareena Kapoor Khan, the duo are great friends! In an interview with Mumbai Mirror, Kareena Kapoor Khan had once stated, “Sara is a rare combination of beauty and brains and that has happened to the Indian film industry after a long time. She can hold a conversation with anyone and at the same time give a shot in which she’s looking absolutely gorgeous. She has all it takes and I think she will be one of the brightest stars on the screen. I can only hope and pray for the best for her.”
In one of her previous interviews, Kareena got all candid when she spoke about her relationship with Sara. The Ashoka star had stated, “We're like best friends. Saif refuses to come out with us. She's my bar hopping partner. I enjoy my equation with her." She further stated, "It's pretty amazing, they have a wonderful mother. They are the most well-brought-up children. I always remember Sara standing up and doing adab. Both Sara and Ibrahim are like that. I am like a friend for them. At times me and Sara chat over a glass of champagne. That's the way Saif wanted and that's the way I wanted it. Whenever she wants to call me she does at time when Saif isn't around and she doesn't want to talk to him. She talks to me.” (Must Read: Kartik Aaryan Is Proud Of His Sister Kritika Who Fulfilled Their Parents' Wish Of Becoming A Doctor)
