Sara Ali Khan recently confessed that although acting will always be her first love she may later join politics too, as she holds a degree in history and political science.
While speaking to Hindustan Times, the actress made the above statement and said, “I have a degree in history and political science so I want to pursue politics maybe later in life, but it’s not a backup plan. I am not leaving and if people will give me the opportunity to be here, I will be here for as long I can.”
She also spoke how her parents Amrita and Saif never discouraged her from joining Bollywood, but made sure that she is aware about the challenges she will have to face as an actor. “My parents vehemently and persistently tried to educate my perspective on acting. They wanted to make sure that I wholeheartedly understand what it (acting) entails. There was no element of dissuasion. But because they’re my parents and it is their duty to align my thought and my expectations about what this job entails,” said Sara.
The actress further added, “They said, ‘You must have a degree for yourself and you must understand the world you are getting into… if you still want to do it, all support to you. We are who we are because of the industry. We are not going to rob that privilege from you but understand what it takes because it’s not just singing and dancing’.”
Sara who is currently shooting for Imtiaz Alia’s Aaj Kal opposite Kartik Aaryan, is rumoured to star in Coolie No. 1 remake opposite Varun Dhawan.
