Bollywood actor Sara Ali Khan who has been making waves in the industry lately, from her appearance on Koffee with Karan to her latest release Simba, looks like there is no looking back for this starlet.
However, despite the fan following and the fame, Sara says that she neither has time to feel like a “star” not does she think she will let herself feel like one in future.
In a recent interview with Business Standard, she talked about her time in Bollywood, rise to ‘stardom’ and family dynamics.
“I am just trying to cope with the workload… I don’t have time to feel like a star,” she began. “I don’t think I will ever let myself feel like a star. The minute you do, others will stop seeing you in a favorable light.”
Speaking of her first project, the starlet explained how it gave her a better insight into film-making. Kedarnath was my first experience in what happens before the camera. Of course, I had been on film sets before but I spent most of the time playing. This film was my first opportunity to be part of the process.”
Sara was raised mainly by her actor-mother Amrita Singh and didn’t have her father, Saif Ali Khan, around as much to which she said, “I have a very hands-on mother. She did nothing but look after me and my brother. My father was always a phone call away for both of us. I’ve never felt he was not there for me.”
The actor added, “In many ways, I am glad my parents were not together. I know they would have never been happy together. And if they were not happy, I would not have been happy. I think having two happy parents in different homes is much more preferable than two unhappy parents in the same home.”
