With a bevy of star kids making their Bollywood debuts this year, it doesn’t come as a surprise when Saif Ali Khan says he would love his 16-year-old daughter Sara to join the Bollywood brigade. The Nawab of Pataudi feels facing the camera is the “most incredible profession in the whole world”.
If her father’s dreams come true, Sara would be joining the likes of Tiger Shroff, Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan, Arjun Kapoor and the others to romance the cameras.
However with just a hint of caution, the proud father says, “Whether she can be or not is a separate question. I don’t know for sure. I think she likes the idea of getting into movies. But at the moment she is pursuing academics, so let’s see where that goes.”
While Saif’s first film Parampara was at the age of 22, the actor feels there is no real rush these days to join tinsel town. He says, “Gone are the days when you had to do it by the age of 16.”
A few months back, Sara posed with her mother Amrita Singh on the covers of a magazine that led to a lot of speculation about her entry into Bollywood. Says proud papa Saif, “Sara has just joined Columbia University and I am very happy and relieved.”
