Saif Ali Khan’s daughter Sara is currently shooting for her debut film Kedarnath in Uttarakhand, which sees her opposite Sushant Singh Rajput and is being helmed by Abhishek Kapoor. As she begins her career into Bollywood, Saif on his part, is understandably anxious.
“I am concerned for her, which is pretty normal for any father. But, I wouldn’t say I am nervous because I am not living vicariously through her,” stated Khan. As someone who has seen Bollywood from the inside, knows that the industry can be a harsh place. “What worries me is the kind of relationships she is going to have. Or for that matter, how she will deal with failure — will she get upset and cry about them? These are things that niggle at me.”
However, Saif Ali Khan asserts that Sara has already displayed a strong sense of independence by choosing her maiden venture without his guidance. “She simply came to me and told me that she is doing Kedarnath. We never discussed the script in detail, as I don’t think my opinion matters. Since it is her independent decision, she is happy to either fly with it or go down with it.”
He further stated, “I’m happy Sara is doing something she is passionate about. The only thing I have told her is to stay true to her job as an artist.
