Actor Sara Ali Khan is basking in praises for playing Rinku Sooryavanshi in Atrangi Re. There are fans who have said that after her debut film, Kedarnath, Sara has given an impactful performance. As she is busy getting praises for her film, in a recent interview, Sara revealed how her father and actor Saif Ali Khan and her grandmother Sharmila Tagore reacted to her performance in Atrangi Re. While her grandma is getting messages about her performance and she loved it, her father Saif Ali Khan was emotional after watching it. She feels proud that her father cried after watching the film.

Sara said that while people have people saying ‘kind things’ about the film to her and Aanand L Rai, “what’s even more touching is that people have been messaging my father and my grandmother.” She added, “I don’t think she has ever received messages about my performance. And now that she is, and she’s forwarding me, it’s a great compliment. She watched it herself, my badi amma, and she loved it. My father cried. These are all big things. These are not things that happen every time. It’s probably the first time I made my pitaji cry with my performance. 

She continued, “I definitely think I’m making him proud. When my father watched the film, and he spoke to me, he said that for the first time, he didn’t see Sara. He saw Rinku. That’s a big, big compliment, because I know that I have a very strong personality. Regardless of whether it’s in interviews, or on Instagram or on the big screen. It gets difficult to divorce Sara from the character she is playing.
