In 2018, Saif Ali Khan and Amrita Singh’s daughter Sara Ali Khan made an impactful debut with two back-to-back films Kedarnath and Simmba. She was appreciated in both the films. However, her third film Love Aaj Kal, which released recently, made her a target amidst the trolls on social media.
As soon as the film’s trailer was dropped, Sara’s dialogue, ‘tum mujhe tang karne lage ho…’ was trolled by netizens, because of the way she said it. After Love Aaj Kal released last week, several netizens took to their social media account and started criticizing Sara for her act as Zoe.
The young actress however spoke about it when an entertainment portal asked her view on this. “I am totally fine now. Whenever you see something different, it is immediately jarring. Somewhere down the line, the archetypical heroine cries beautifully. She has to be a bit demure, coy, beautiful, aesthetic, even in her most emotional and vulnerable scenes. My character looks ugly when she cries, she is loud and aggressive because people can be that. People who are trying to put you down just for the sake of it, you shouldn’t give them the satisfaction of doing it, just move forward.”
She further added, “Because for human beings in general, self-introspection is an idea we want to work towards, not something we do inherently. We don’t really judge ourselves very often. And to do justice to any character on screen, it’s important to not do that. I don’t judge Zoe. I don’t judge the fact that she says f**k you. I don’t judge the fact that she is a front-footed girl who gets what she wants.”
Sara is currently busy working on her next, Coolie No 1 opposite Varun Dhawan in Goa. She has also bagged Aanand L Rai’s next Atrangi Re, where she will be seen with Dhanush and Akshay Kumar.
