Saif Ali Khan was asked on Ranveer Singh romancing with daughter Sara Ali Khan, here’s how he replied


Sara Ali Khan, Saif Ali Khan’s daughter from ex-wife Amrita Singh, has been a subject of constant media spotlight in the recent months as she awaits the release of her debut film Kedarnathwhich also has Sushant Singh Rajput as a lead male protagonist.

The star daughter had courted controversy while shooting for Kedarnath after the film’s director, Abhishek Kapoor, sued Sara for not honouring the dates. In his lawsuit, Kapoor had also reportedly sought damages worth Rs 5 crore. However, the legal battle was avoided, thanks to the timely intervention by Saif.

Seldom has Saif publicly spoken about Sara or his ex-wife Amrita. On this year’s Father’s Day, the actor had told a website that he was pleased to see Karan Johar taking care of his daughter. “She is in the Dharma camp, so she’ll be fine. I would have always liked that because then, it’s a lot more secure and people like Karan know how to take care of you. It’s more than just making a film. She’s following her heart,” Saif had said. This was in reference to Sara shooting for Simmba opposite Ranveer Singh. The film is a Dharma Productions project.

Saif was recently asked whether he felt uncomfortable on seeing Sara’s on-screen romance with Ranveer in Simmba. He replied, “Ranveer Singh is doing film with Sara, it’s an age gap. You know your children when they grow older it does make you suddenly feel like wow time has gone by. I used to be the youngest guy in movies I remember that. But I’m okay.”

He was then asked about his own equation with Sara particularly after his second marriage with Kareena Kapoor Khan, with whom he has a son called, Taimur. Saif replied, “I was quite young when I had Sara, we have a drink together from time to time. We are more like friends, so there’s very little I can lecture her on in that sense. It’s a bit odd, someone might even cast us in movie.”

Sara has been accompanied by her Mom even when she traveleld to Hyderabad for the Simmba shoot. The photos of Sara and Amrita doing Eid shopping at a small market in Hyderabad had gone viral.

A fitness freak that she is, Sara is often seen walking out of her gym in Mumbai. Many have termed her not just the most beautiful star daughter but also the fittest of all in her generation.
