Bollywood : Why Actress Sara Ali Khan Not think about stardom!

Sara Ali Khan is one lucky newcomer.

She has had two releases in a span of 25 days. Both are running simultaneously in the theatres and both are doing well at the box office.

She got rave reviews in Abhishek Kapoor's Kedarnath and showed that she could do well as a commercial actress in Rohit Shetty's Simmba.

Saif Ali Khan and Amrita Singh's daughter is as confident as they come and she's ready to take on Bollywood. 

She's basking in the love of her fans and wants to make sure that she earns every minute of her stardom.

You got a lot of appreciation for Kedarnath. Does that boost your confidence? 

A lot of people think the first chapter is over but I don’t think like that. The only thing that has happened is that you have given me a book and I can read. 

Honestly, I needed to see myself on the big screen.

I understand that my parents, the industry, the media and the audiences matter a lot but, at the risk of sounding arrogant, I want to say that if you are not convinced, you will not be able to convince anybody else. 

So I needed to watch the film.

Now, seeing the appreciation -- I don’t know if confidence is the word -- I feel I have a duty. 

If you give somebody love in any form, it comes with a certain duty. 

Did you celebrate your success? 

My celebrations are interviews. I am not being funny, it’s true! 

It has been so hectic for the past three weeks, working on Simmba, that the only time one gets to internalise what has happened is during interviews. 

There is nothing more beautiful than celebrating with people who make you what you are.

I think I am what I am because of the media and the audiences. 

I went incognito to watch the film in theatres. That was a celebration! 

What was the best compliment you’ve got? 

I sound like a sadist but you can understand where I am coming from -- when people were crying in the climax (of Kedarnath), I was like, ‘‘Yes, rote raho, thoda aur ro lo.’ 

My mother also cried at the end of the film. 

Do people tell you that you resemble your mother? Your acting style is like hers as well.

Yes, they tell me I look like her.

I don’t know about acting because she’s a fine actor and I think it will take me a long time to get there.

There is this collage of pictures that I have not seen of mom before -- and I love Instagram for it! -- I was wearing purple lipstick and I thought I looked so cool but there was a picture of mom, like 30 years ago, wearing purple lipstick and we are doing the same thing with our face!

Your grandmother Sharmila Tagore watched the film… 

Yes. I think that she is also extremely proud of me. 

She’s getting a lot of messages from people. 

She messaged my mom, which was a big thing for me. I think Dadi messaging mom after whatever life we had was really something.
