Saif Ali Khan and Amrita Singh’s daughter Sara Ali Khan’s Bollywood debut has been grabbing headlines for months now. While initially, Sara’s debut was to happen under Karan Johar’s banner Dharma Productions, recently, it was announced that she would finally step into Bollywood with Abhishek Kapoor’s “Kedarnath” opposite Sushant Singh Rajput.
Like any father, Saif was anxious about his daughter’s big Bollywood debut, and said that he would have preferred a safer career option for her.
In an interview with DNA, the actor had revealed how he found his eldest daughter’s decision to make a debut in the industry worrisome as it is not a stable profession. Sara is a graduate of Columbia University and Saif in an interview said, “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”.
The latest reports suggest that Saif’s comments haven’t gone down well with his ex-wife Amrita.
Also, Amrita apparently called Saif to let him know what she thought about his comments. According to a report in DNA, a source was quoted saying: “She (Amrita) told him (Saif) it was an irresponsible thing to say considering Sara is about to embark on a film career. Saif didn’t want to be dragged into an argument, so he mumbled that he was ‘quoted out of context’ and calmed down his former wife.”
Well the thing did not end here! As soon as the phone call ended, Saif attended a press conference and as expected, he was asked about his daughter’s much talked about debut.
Here he clarified the whole statement saying, “I love my daughter, support her and I think her choice is great. Of course, she is an actress, she belongs to a family of artistes, which is great, but I am still a little concerned for her as it is an unsure profession. Because I love her, I worry for her. That’s all I am saying. Is that clear? People write things like, ‘He doesn’t know what he is saying. He doesn’t know his mind.’ I find that annoying.” Karan Johar who was present at the event, supported Saif’s statement.
Well, we hope that both the parents of Sara Ali Khan get at peace over her career debut as she is soon going to embark on her Bollywood journey. Sara will be seen opposite Sushant Singh Rajput in ‘Kedarnath’ helmed by Abhishek Kapoor.
