Sara Ali Khan has always stood apart from other actresses. One of the most candid and non-diplomatic stars of her generation, Sara has charmed everyone with her honesty. And now, in a glaring departure from other actresses of her generation, Sara Ali Khan has said that she wants to join politics after she finishes her stint with Bollywood. Sara said that she has a degree in Political Science and hence she has an active interest in politics.
In the recent interview, Sara specified that since she has two degrees in History and Political Science, she would like to join politics some day although that's not a backup career plan. Talking to HT Cafe, the 23-year-old said that even though acting will be her priority always, she would like to try her hand at politics later in life. "I have a degree in history and political science so I want to pursue politics maybe later in life, but it's not a backup plan. I am not leaving and if people will give me the opportunity to be here (Bollywood), I will be here for as long I can," she was quoted as saying.
Before making her Bollywood debut with Kedarnath, the actress was studying at Columbia University. This is the first time any newbie actress has evinced an active interest in joining politics. However, Sara didn't specify which political party she would like to join. We would like to believe that she hasn't made her decision yet.
Of course, the connection between Bollywood and politics runs deep. This time, in the ongoing Lok Sabha elections, a long list of stars are contesting on various party tickets.
