Saif Ali Khan has always said that his children should finish their education first and get into action. Shah Rukh Khan has also always said the same thing. But the bottom line is they are both OK with their daughters joining films. We always thought that if actors are fine with their daughters joining films, it means that they were decent during their time. You know what we mean. Like for example, Raj Kapoor never wanted any woman in his family to join films. Sanjay Dutt was livid when his daughter said she was joining films. Most of the them don’t want their daughters in Bollywood, but they are fine with their sons joining the films industry. This includes Amitabh Bachchan. Anyways, Saif is relieved that Karan Johar has taken his daughter, Sara Ali Khan, under his reign. She was supposed to be in that film with Hrithik Roshan, but since he was kicked out, Sara has to wait some more before making her debut. We thought that Sara might take some other route as a professional, but it seems that she can’t stay away from getting a taste of fame. It’s eventually what all star kids want: to be famous and idolised. By the way, Kareena Kapoor has said that Sara is very smart and all that, but does she have any acting talent? Let’s just wait and see. It would be interesting though to hear what she has to say about her mother. And her dad’s story with Kareena Kapoor. They look like a stable family from far, but as soon as the curtains are drawn, they are something else. Can’t wait.

I am very happy to see Sara doing whatever she has her heart set on. We talk constantly and she discusses whatever she wants to and I give her my advice. But eventually it is her decision.

I think she is going to. I am very happy she is working with Karan Johar because I think he is brilliant with newcomers and he will launch her correctly. He is a very intelligent and a passionate filmmaker and he understands films. I am very pleased that she is with him.
