Sara Ali Khan Joins The Dreaded Nepotism Debate; Says 'Didn’t Choose To Be Saif Ali Khan And Amrita’s Daughter'
The debate on nepotism in Bollywood seems to be never-ending. Ever since Kangana Ranaut brought it up while talking to Karan Johar on Koffee With Karan, this has become a widely discussed topic. Bollywood stars, especially star kids are often asked to express their views on the same, and many times, they are also trolled for their responses. This is exactly what happened recently with Chunky Panday’s daughter Ananya Panday, whose reply on nepotism made her a target for trolls. Pooja Bedi’s daughter Alaya F also expressed her views about it recently. Now, joining the debate is Saif Ali Khan and Amrita Singh’s daughter Sara Ali Khan, who is all set for next release Love Aaj Kal.

Sara Ali Khan has opened up about nepotism in Bollywood and if she feels pressurized because she is Saif Ali Khan and Amrita Singh’s daughter. In a recent interview with Pinkvilla, Sara Ali Khan made her opinion on nepotism known and said that she loves her job and lever looks at it as pressure. She said, “I also realised and recognised that if I feel pressurized with the fact that I'm Saif and Amrita's daughter, which is also something that I'm immensely proud of, then I really won't be able to perform. So taking that pressure is not smart." ALSO READ: Atrangi Re First Look: Akshay Kumar-Sara Ali Khan-Dhanush Sport Infectious Smiles




Sara Ali Khan further elaborated that she does have advantages, but feeling pressurized is not going to help. She said that she didn’t choose to be Saif Ali Khan and Amrita Singh’s daughter and even though she is really proud of it, she believes that one can make it in the industry only if they have what it takes. “Everyone has their own journey and the audience is extremely smart. At the end, if you have it, you will make it. If you don't, you won't. Every day has different starting points but it's all about how you grow,” she said.


On the work front, Sara Ali Khan will be seen romancing Kartik Aaryan in Imtiaz Ali’s Love Aaj Kal. The film will release this Valentine’s Day, 2020.
