Sara Ali Khan was recently in the capital to attend a popular talk show hosted by renowned journalist Barkha Dutt. In the event Sara was asked about the controversial topic of nepotism and whether she enjoys any privileges for having come from a film family with actor parents and grandparents, to which Sara said, ” As much as I hate the term, but star kids do get it easy, we do have a privilege in term of access that others don’t have but it also comes with scrutiny”
She further added, “At the risk of sounding negative, which I don’t intend to at all, because whether it’s been the audience or the media everybody has been very loving towards me, may be even more than what I deserve, but I also do think that there is a whole lot of people out there, who are waiting for you as a star child to make one mistake or to falter, so that they can say, that see this person got it easy and has no talent.”
Sara further added that she is aware that there are people who are waiting for the ‘star kids’ to fail and said, “There are people who are wanting us to fail and mildly resentful of what you may or may not have; and I have felt that at movie sets, ad shoots and photo shoots as well.”
Talking about audience’s perceived notion about star kids, she added, “Their is a sense of perceived entitlement, so I feel that we don’t necessarily walk around with the label of being star children, as much as we carry what people perceive star children to be and I feel that is more unfair.”
Meanwhile on work front, Sara Ali Khan has a busy year ahead, as she will next be seen in Imtiaz Ali’s next, Love Aaj Kal sequel opposite her rumoured beau, Kartik Aaryan. Post which she has David Dhawan’s Coolie No 1 with Varun Dhawan.
