Sara Ali Khan is soon going to make her Bollywood debut with Kedarnath and all eyes are on her. The debutante recently made an appearance on Karan Johar’s celebrity chat show Koffee With Karan and people couldn’t stop talking about her confidence. Sara has also started working on her second film which is Rohit Shetty’s Simmba co-starring Ranveer Singh.
Since she is actors Saif Ali Khan and Amrita Singh’s daughter, her interviews, without the mention of nepotism, would be incomplete. Sara, who is currently in London with mom Amrita, spoke about nepotism and the perk of being a star kid in an interview with BBC’s Asian Network.
This is become a conversation back home recently more than it was, this word nepotism that a lot of people talk about. I don’t think that I can run away from that. I think it will be hypocritical and wrong for me to say that it doesn’t exist. I think that the main perk of being a star kid is access; what it does is that it allows— I could go to Rohit Sir’s office and say that would you consider me for Simmba, that’s a privilege. So the access that my parents have worked so hard to enable me to have is not something that I can deny or something that I can run away from. What I am trying to say is that while star kids, as much as I hate that term, do have easier access to this line maybe, but if you are not good, you are going to be asked to leave.
Sara is aware of the pressure that comes along with being a star kid. Sara also spoke about that in the interview.
I do carry the burden of a little bit of pressure- I am done shooting for two films without anybody even seeing the first one, I am aware of the pressure that comes with, I am aware that it is going to be seen by many as an unearned opportunity and when that happens, the pressure is even greater.
Sara comes across as confident, mature and definitely looks promising. We are waiting to see you on the big screen, Sara.
