Sara Ali Khan has been getting rave reviews for her performance in Abhishek Kapoor’s Kedarnath. The 23-year-old says watching her debut film made her grandmother Sharmila Tagore text her mother Amrita Singh.
Speaking about it, she told DNA, “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,” she added.
Sara’s parents, actors Amrita Singh and Saif Ali Khan, were married from 1991 to 2004. The two also have a son together—Ibrahim Ali Khan. Saif is now married to actor Kareena Kapoor Khan, with whom he has a two-year-old son—Taimur Ali Khan.
Sharmila also spoke highly of Sara in a recent interview. She told IANS, “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 heart-warming to see her the way she has turned out. 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.”
Sara will next be seen in Rohit Shetty’s Simmba, which releases on December 28. Calling the filmmaker "the king of commercial cinema" and revealing that she approached him for the film, she said, "I am a huge Rohit Sir fan. I messaged him thrice and he responded on the third message. Knowing that he and Ranveer Singh were coming together, I had to."
