And she’s also an extremely maternal and loving grandmother.”
Sara Ali Khan has further said that in her opinion, her grandmother Sharmila Tagore is ‘the first star’. She said, “If I watch Aradhana, and Mere Sapno ki Rani, I’m like, ‘Oh my God, that’s my dadi!’ Like, are you serious? Because she’s just superb, you know, she’s a star. I think she’s the first star in my opinion.”
“So sometimes it’s almost confusing for me, like, really that lady is my grandmother! You know, it’s weird. It is very strange. But, I mean, she’s amazing. And I’m very lucky to have her in my life,” the Simmba actress further added.
