Bollywood actor Saif Ali Khan has a teenaged daughter who is contemplating to become an actress. Don’t know? Well, Saif married actress Amrita Singh in 1991 and they have two children – daughter Sara and a son. After thirteen years of marriage the couple divorced in 2004.
Sara, who’s currently in America pursuing law in a college in Columbia University wants to become an actress. Father Khan’s advice to his daughter: First Complete your college and then think about what career to choose. Education is necessary as you’ll have some backing; in case you don’t succeed as an actress. Plus, to become an actress, lose weight.
Interestingly, Sara was noticed when she posed on the cover of a magazine alongside mother Amrita and also when she made her ramp debut for designers Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla. According to some reports she is flooded with film offers since then.
Saif Ali Khan’s advice to his daughter in a way tells how India thinks about body weight. Although, now a days not so thin actresses like Huma Qureshi are making their mark as an actress; but still there surely is a preference for slim actresses (especially in lead role). What do you think?
