Saif Ali Khan on daughter Sara Ali Khan: What worries me is how she will deal with failure

India Today logo India Today 30/09/2017

Following in the footsteps of parents - Saif Ali Khan and Amrita Singh, Sara Ali Khan too decided to give Bollywood a try. And it didn't come as a surprise when she expressed her desire to become an actor. And after months of speculation, she finally signed her Bollywood debut with Abhishek Kapoor. Sara has already begun shooting for her dream debut with Sushant Singh Rajput in Uttarakhand, and her dad Saif is more than happy for his daughter.

However, the 47-year-old actor is little worried too. For somebody who has been in the industry for more than two decades, he has seen all the ups and downs in Bollywood. As his daughter takes baby steps into the film industry, he is a little anxious.

In an interview to Mid-Day, Saif said, "I am concerned for her, which is pretty normal for any father. But, I wouldn't say I am nervous because I am not living vicariously through her. What worries me is the kind of relationships she is going to have. Or for that matter, how she will deal with failure - will she get upset and cry about them? These are things that niggle at me."

However, the doting dad is happy that his daughter has chosen her maiden project independently, without much of his guidance. "She simply came to me and told me that she is doing Kedarnath. We never discussed the script in detail, as I don't think my opinion matters. Since it is her independent decision, she is happy to either fly with it or go down with it," added Saif.

On the work front, Saif is currently awaiting the release of Chef.
