Bollywood actor Saif Ali Khan’s daughter Sara Ali Khan, who is a graduate of Columbia University in New York, is all set for her big acting debut opposite Sushant Singh Rajput. The pretty girl is set to make her debut with ‘Kedarnath’, directed by Abhishek Kapoor, co-starring Sushant Singh. However, looks like Sara’s father Saif Ali Khan is not so cool about his daughter making her career in acting. The Rangoon actor is apparently unhappy that Sara has picked films over her alternate career.
Saif Ali Khan in an interview with DNA told, “Why would she want that for herself? Look at where she studied. After having done that, why wouldn’t she want to live and work in New York, rather than do this? I am not looking down on acting, it’s just it is not the most stable profession. And everyone lives in constant fear. And there is no guarantee that despite doing your best, you will succeed. This is not the life, any parent would want for their children.”
However, he seemed to be a little skeptical about Sara’s acting career and even revealed that Sara always wanted to be an actor. “I remember years ago we’d gone for a stage show abroad and while I was on the stage with Salman and other actors, Sara was standing behind the stage curtain and looking at us. I knew then that she wanted this for herself. Being on stage and people shouting her name,” he added.
Saif Ali Khan also confessed that he was not involved in Sara getting her first Bollywood project. “I am there if she needs to ask or talk to me about anything. I know what she is doing and we talk about films just like we do about everything else,” said Saif Ali Khan.
Now we are confused if Saif is cool about his daughter’s acting career or no. However, his ex-wife Amrita Singh is quite supportive and in fact, was also a part of Sara’s first script reading session.
