Sara Ali Khan has never shied away from discussing her family dynamic with the media, specifically her relationship with Kareena Kapoor Khan, who she has never seen as her stepmother.
In an interview with Femina, Khan spoke about her equation with Kapoor, “I do think that Kareena is my friend, but more than that, she is my father’s wife. I respect her, and realise that she makes my father happy. We belong to the same profession, and have a similar world, thus, our conversations include that as well.”
She expressed that she shares a healthy relationship with her stepbrother Taimur Ali Khan as well. “Taimur has the ability to lighten up everybody’s mood by just being there. I am happy to see my father enjoy fatherhood with Taimur because, while he has been a great father to me and Ibrahim, he is at the age and stage in his life where he gets to enjoy fatherhood the way it should be enjoyed. I see the happiness and contentment Taimur brings to his life; I love that. Taimur has helped our family bond like never before.” Khan also added that, “I can understand why my father is concerned with Taimur getting attention. Perhaps, he doesn’t want him to grow up feeling special or entitled. We can’t do anything about the media attention he gets; it’s part of the way things function at this point of time. If my father and Kareena inculcate—which I am sure they do—discipline in him, and ensure that he doesn’t get attached to this attention, it will be fine.”
Khan is currently shooting for ‘Coolie No. 1’ with Varun Dhawan. Her next release will be ‘Love Aaj Kal 2’, which will be in theatres on Valentine’s Day 2020.
