It’s no surprise that any parent would be apprehensive about their kids entering the big bad world of Bollywood, and B-town families are no exception. Having already experienced the good, bad and ugly of this world first hand, Saif opens up in an interview with DNA Newspaper, about how he feels about Sara finally making her debut in films.
When asked about how he felt about his daughter making her debut he said, “A little nervous. Fear is the most driving factor in the industry. 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?” Seems like Saif isn’t too pleased about Sara deciding to enter Bollywood. He went on to explain himself saying, “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.”
Saif recalled the time he first saw the passion for stardom in Sara’s eyes years ago. He reminisced saying, “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.” Considering Sara comes from a linage of prominent Bollywood actors like Sharmila Tagore and Saif and has solid inspiration like Kareena Kapoor Khan around her, it came as no surprise when we found out she would soon want to be a part of Bollywood. Saif went on to reveal that he was never involved in the choosing process of Sara’s debut film, but obviously is always there for support and advice.
With a strong support system in her family and great debut film lined up, we can’t wait to see what the little diva has in store for us!
