I am aware of nepotism and the unfairness that it might come with, says Sara Ali Khan
2018 saw the rise of a number of debutants making their mark on the big screen. From star kids like Janhvi Kapoor, Sara Ali Khan, Ishaan Khatter to outside industry debuts including Radhika Madan and Zoya Hussain. And, since Kangana Ranaut brought forward the term nepotism in the industry, the most attacked were the star kids, who, inspite of being talented, were said to have rose to fame because of their parent’s involvement in Bollywood.
In an interview with Hindustan Times, Saif Ali Khan and Amrita Singh‘s daughter Sara Ali Khan was asked about the pressure of being a star kid and living up to her parents’ legacy. She said that her parents have always been supportive of everything she did.
The ‘Kedarnath’ actress said, “Some comments that I get from people are politically incorrect to quote because one of them said that ‘we are glad that nepotism has brought people like Sara Ali Khan’. That is a huge compliment because I am aware of nepotism and the unfairness that it might come with. I am aware that I have access to more things in the industry than other people do. But, I don’t think that it’s pressure.”
The ‘Simmba’ actress said, “She was never averse to pressure. The only thing she wants to do is make her mark in the film industry.” In the end, Sara noted that she wants people to remember her for the characters she plays and not just Saif Ali Khan‘s daughter whenever people walk out of the theatres.
Notably, Sara made her Bollywood debut with Kedarnath last year. Directed by Abhishek Kapoor, the film also starred Sushant Singh Rajput in the lead role. Sara received a lot of appreciation from the critics and the audience for her performance in the film.
Not only her acting but because of her interviews the people adore her for her confidence and cheerful attitude. However, the actress is being called the next big thing in Bollywood.
