- "She always wanted to do this," Saif said about Sara
- "It's just that she took a header," he said
- "I have seen her do a very funny advert," he added
Sharing an incident from when Sara was backstage and watched Aishwarya perform in New York, Saif said: "I have seen her do a very funny advert when she was four and she's been like this all along. There was actress Aishwarya Rai on stage in New York with people going ballistic and Sara sitting on the floor behind the curtain saying 'This is what I want to do'," reported IANS.
Earlier in 2017, Saif's sudden comments on Sara's debut sort of revealed that the actor is not too happy with Sara joining films. "Why would she want that for herself? Look at where she studied. After having done that, why wouldn't she want to live and work in New York, rather than do this? I am not looking down on acting, it's just it is not the most stable profession. And everyone lives in constant fear. And there is no guarantee that despite doing your best, you will succeed. This is not the life, any parent would want for their children," he told DNA.
This may have confused many because, previously, he said in interviews that Sara has his blessings to pursue a career of her choice - and if films be her choice, she would be taking inspiration from the example set by her aunt Soha Ali Khan. "I think the girls in my family think this (Bollywood) is far more fun. Yes, perhaps it is," he told NDTV.
Last seen in Chef, Saif Ali Khan's Kaalaakandi releases later this month.
