Sara Ali Khan's bubbly nature and grounded behaviour make her one of the most adored star kids.

Despite the separation of Sara's parents, Saif Ali Khan and Amrita Singh, she shares a warm bond with her paternal family. Sara and her brother, Ibrahim Ali Khan are often spotted celebrating special occasions with dad, Saif and his second wife, Kareena Kapoor Khan and their kids, Taimur Ali Khan and Jehangir Ali Khan.

"I am very impressed by her… though I don't see why her self confidence should surprise me. But whether it was Koffee With Karan, Rajeev Masand, BBC…her confidence humility and charm made me so happy… it's so heartwarming to see her the way she has turned out. When asked what she's doing in films after going to Columbia University she said the education was for her growth as a person and not for career. She's never tongue-tied. And how well she stood up for her father on Karan Johar's show I am really proud of her."
