When Sara Ali Khan talked about being starry-eyed seeing her grandmother on the silver screen

In an interview with The Times of India, Sara opened up on her bond with her grandmother, Sharmila Tagore. Revealing how she admired her grandmother and the absolute pleasure of watching her on the silver screen, she stated:

“If I watch ‘Aradhana’, and ‘Mere Sapno ki Rani’, I’m like, Oh my God, that's my dadi! Like, are you serious? Because she's just superb, you know, she's a star. I think she's the first star in my opinion. So sometimes it's almost confusing for me, like, really that lady is my grandmother! You know, it's weird. It is very strange. But, I mean, she's amazing. And I'm very lucky to have her in my life."
