Actress Soha Ali Khan has announced her retirement from films and said that she won't be acting in any full-length feature films anymore. "To do a feature film is a big-time commitment and I made a personal decision to give Inaaya a year of my life with as much attention as possible," she was quoted as saying by multiple news agencies.
She then justified her retirement saying that she will not be able to give long-time commitments. "I can step away for short periods of time and I didn't realize it is only going to become more difficult to step away and it’s never enough time. But I thought when she is old enough, I will take on more work. The thing is, she is 8 and a half months now and is ready, but I am not," she said in a media interaction after launching Shankara Naturals India's Ayurveda skin-care and beauty products here on Wednesday. Soha also said that she is very thankful to Tigmanshu Dhulia for not killing her character in Saheb Biwi and Gangster 3, in which the audience will be able to see her on big screen soon. "He called me last year October and asked what I was doing, I replied that 'I am busy in October as I am having a child' so obviously it was difficult for me to do a movie but they managed to use my character towards the end of the film. Apart from that, I have worked in a short film called Sound Proof which is now doing rounds of the festival circuit and soon will be released in India," New 18 quoted her as saying.
Soha, along with her actor-husband Kunal Kemmu, had last year announced their production house, and their first project under their banner is a biopic of renowned lawyer Ram Jethmalani.
