Sara Ali Khan made her first appearance on Koffee With Karan last year before her debut in Bollywood and her candidness won hearts. She apparently is the new girl on the block who also, in less than a month of her entry in Bollywood delivered two hits like a boss. Though the reason for her initial fame was her “star kid” status, being Saif Ali Khan and Amrita Singh’s daughter, now she is making headlines because of her spunky and carefree attitude.
Her Koffee With Karan appearance grabbed headlines primarily because she herself admitted to crushing on Kartik Aaryan, but there was a lot more to her than that. Her accepting attitude and maturity even caught his father by surprise, who was sharing the couch with her. Now that the season is over, new unseen video by the makers of the show has been released which did not make it to the final cut. Karan Johar, host of the show asked about Saif and Amrita Singh’s last meeting, to which Saif replied,
“In Columbia when we went to drop Sara to the University. We had dinner together in New York”
“It was nice. I was going to college and mom had come to drop me and Abba was also there. Actually, my father and I were having dinner and then we decided to call my mum, and she came”.
Detailing further on the meetup, The Kedarnath actor said that it is a cherished memory for her as both her parents helped her set up the room in Columbia University. She was quoted as saying,
“We had a good time. And then they set me up in college together, I remember. And it was actually quite a sight because you were seeing, you know, Amrita Singh, and for those of you who know her, it’s a funny sight, like, making my bed and Saif Ali Khan putting the bulb in the lamp. It was really nice and I really cherish that.”
Sara Ali Khan was also asked whether she feels constantly under pressure of looking her best at all times, being in the profession that she is. To this, she candidly responded,
“Can I just say that I feel that you’re right when you say there is pressure? But I think that we have to get used to the fact that there is pressure, you know. Because that is the time that we live in now. Somewhere down the line, you have to gather the inner strength to stand up to that pressure and be comfortable in your skin.”
“In the entertainment industry, there are people (who) try to make you feel insecure, no matter what. So you have to yourself say that, ‘Look, this is who I am and I am comfortable in my skin.’ After that, it really shouldn’t matter. We all get trolled for being fat, fake, too original…”
On the work front, Sara Ali Khan will be seen next in Imtiaz Ali’s Love Aaj Kal 2 opposite Kartik Aaryan. She is also in talks to a lead in David Dhawan’s next remake Coolie No. 1 starring Varun Dhawan. Nothing has been officially confirmed yet but if we see, Varun and Sara could actually be the new age Govinda and Karishma Kapoor.
She has interesting projects in her kitty and it would be really exciting to watch her romance handsome boys, Kartik and Varun.
