From supporting us when our parents scold us, entertaining us with the fascinating 50-year-old life stories to showering us with gifts and sweets, it is the love of our grandparents that teaches us the true meaning of the word, ‘selfless’. If our parents are the ones who discipline us, grandparents are the ones who pamper us! Relationships are no different when it comes to celebrities. Sharmila Tagore is a proud grandma of four, Sara Ali Khan, Ibrahim Ali Khan, Taimur Ali Khan and Inaaya Naumi Kemmu, and just like any grandparent, the 74-year-old veteran too loves spending time with grandchildren.

Hailing from a star family, Saif Ali Khan and Amrita Singh’s firstborn, Sara Ali Khan has impressed everyone with her witty personality, undeniable confidence and down-to-earth perspective on life. Sara had begun her journey to fame in 2018 and even with less than a year in Bollywood, it looks like the Kedarnath debutante will take forward the Pataudi legacy to a whole new level. With ‘flab to fab’ inspiring journey, her acting skills and sartorial choices, Sara proved to be not just a product of nepotism and is here to stay!
On September 25, 2019, in association with Trends, the Vogue Beauty Awards 2019 had lit up Mumbai's JW Marriott hotel and it was one of the starriest nights of the year. Attending her first Vogue Beauty Awards, Sara Ali Khan stunned her fans in a black Shriya Som gown featuring sequins and lots of ruffles. Sara made her red-carpet debut at the awards with her badi amma, Sharmila Tagore, who was a sight to behold in a pristine white saree. While Sharmila ji was honoured with the Beauty Legend title, Sara bagged the Fresh Face (Female) award. When Sara was asked about her experience of walking down the red carpet with her badi amma, she said, “I think for me, badi amma has always kind of epitomised beauty and this is Vogue Beauty. So, I think attending with her is just very special for me.”
In an interview sometime back, Sara Ali Khan had revealed her beauty secrets and if her parents, Saif Ali Khan and Amrita Singh have given any fashion advice to her. Elaborating on the fashion advice she has gotten from her star parents, Sara had remarked, "Be yourself, be comfortable in your skin and remember that you are our daughter - nothing trashy."
Spilling the secret to her supple and clear skin, Sara Ali Khan had continued, "Whatever fruit is leftover from breakfast, I put on my face." Sara had also revealed some home remedies and said that she puts everything from badam to honey and "not very nice smelling things on my face and onions in my hair. It takes a lot of guts to do it." When asked for the beauty advice she had received from her grandmother, Sharmila Tagore, Sara had retorted with what she is constantly reminded of, "Sleep well and drink water."

Sara Ali Khan has been in the news even before her Bollywood debut, but with her first film, Kedarnath, Sara had proved her mettle as an actor, impressing her audience. In a post-Kedarnath interview, Sara had revealed how her dadi, Sharmila had reacted after watching her first film. Sara had remarked, “Dadi is extremely proud. She is getting a lot of messages from people and she messaged mom which was a big one for me. I think dadi messaging mom, after you know... life, that we have, that was really something. That's amazing. If as a character, you can bring audiences together and as an individual you can bring your family together for 30 seconds also, that's something." Isn’t that amazing?
In an interview with the IANS, Sharmila Tagore had expressed her proudness for granddaughter, Sara Ali Khan. About her debut film and as a person that Sara has turned out to be, the proud granny had stated, “Yes, I am so excited about her debut (in the film Kedarnath). 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 a 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.”
When Sharmila Tagore was asked if she has more time for her grandchildren than her children, she had retorted, “Yes that's true. I do have lots more time for my grandchildren, the kind of pressures on time that I tackled earlier are no more there though I do keep myself busy with professional commitments like the random ad here and a cinema conference there. But definitely I now have more time for not just my grandchildren but also my children. I have more time for our ancestral home in Pataudi also.” (Also Read: Samantha Akkineni Reveals Who Brings Colour To Her Life And It Is Not Her Hubby, Naga Chaitanya)
