By what it looks like, she is fully prepping up for her celebrity stature, and is really into fitness, with her fashion game on point.

After a lot of speculation, mixed with some Karan Johar controversy, Sara will finally grace the silver screen in Abhishek Kapoor's next film, opposite co-star Sushant Singh Rajput.

In an interview with a leading daily, father Saif Ali Khan expressed his hesitation and anxiety over his daughter's entry in showbiz, and his statements are endearingly relatable!

"Why would she want that for herself? Look at where she studied. After having done that, why wouldn't she want to live and work in New York, rather than do this?," he said.

He candidly opened up on his insecurities, his past failures and apprehensions born out of them which makes him a bit sceptical of the career choice Sara is opting for. Being a father, looking out for your child, is something one cannot help, no matter what ranks they hail from.

""(I am) A little nervous. Fear is the most driving factor in the industry. I am not looking down on acting, it's just it is not the most stable profession. And everyone lives in constant fear. And there is no guarantee that despite doing your best, you will succeed. This is not the life, any parent would want for their children."

Even though Saif had no involvement in selecting her project, however, he clarified that he was in no way, supporting her any less than a father would, and will obviously mentor her. "I am there if she needs to ask or talk to me about anything. I know what she is doing and we talk about films just like we do about everything else," he said.

Interestingly, Saif also cited an instance from Sara's childhood which pointed out to her adoration and fancy for Bollywood, and how she always knew, that's where she belonged. "I remember years ago we'd gone for a stage show abroad and while I was on the stage with Salman and other actors, Sara was standing behind the stage curtain and looking at us. I knew then that she wanted this for herself. Being on stage and people shouting her name," the actor added.

Well, like everyone else, we too can't wait to see this starlet work her magic on the screen.
