Amrita Singh irks with Saif Ali Khan over Sara’s acting debut remark


Sara Ali Khan, the daughter of Amrita Singh and Saif Ali Khan is all set to make her Bollywood debut with Abhishek Kapoor’s ‘Kedarnath’ opposite Sushant Singh Rajput but Sara’s father and actor Saif Ali Khan is not so impressed with daughter’s acting debut.

Saif commented, “A little nervous. Fear is the most driving factor in the industry. 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?”

Saif justified his concern and added, “I am not looking down on acting, it’s just that 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.”

Reportedly, Saif’s comment on Sara’s acting debut irks Amrita Singh. Slamming her ex-husband, Amrita said a source, “She told him it was an irresponsible thing to say considering Sara is about to embark on a film career.”

“Saif didn’t want to be dragged into an argument, so he mumbled that he was ‘quoted out of context’ and calmed down his former wife”, adds the source.

Soon after Amrita’s comment, Saif did some damage control at a press conference. He said, “"I love my daughter, support her and I think her choice is great. Of course, she is an actress, she belongs to a family of artistes, which is great, but I am still a little concerned for her as it is an unsure profession. Because I love her, I worry for her. That’s all I am saying. Is that clear? People write things like, ‘He doesn’t know what he is saying. He doesn’t know his mind.’ I find that annoying.”
