74 years old Bollywood actor Sharmila Tagore said that she is very happy how Sara Ali Khan stood with her father Saif Ali Khan in Koffe With Karan.
While talking about Sara’s debut in bollywood she said “I am so excited about her debut (in the film Kedarnath). I am very impressed by her… though I don’t see why her self confidence should surprise me. But whether it was Koffee With Karan, Rajeev Masand, BBC – her confidence, humility and charm made me so happy.It’s so heartwarming to see her the way she has turned out. When asked what she’s doing in films after going to Columbia University she said the education was for her growth as a person and not for career. She’s never tongue-tied. And how well she stood up for her father on Karan Johar’s show. I am really proud of her.
While responding to a question that “Are you still keen on a biopic on your husband the Nawab of Pataudi”she said, “Well, it will depend on who the captains of the ship are , the producers and director. It is a good story, I think, with all the twists and the turns in his life….father’s death, losing his eye after which his average came down from 60 to 30. To receive such a blow at such a young age….I don’t think anyone else has been able to make those adjustments and that kind of an impact with one eye. He not only batted but also fielded after the eye accident. I think he was a wonderful sportsperson. God knows, what he’d have achieved if he had both his eyes”.
She also appreciated the ongoing #MeToo movement in Bollywood and said, “I don’t want to comment on it. I don’t see how my two-bits can contribute to the discussion. I followed a bit of it… But I don’t know… Of course I’ve always supported the feminist movement . But this naming and shaming …I really don’t know”.
