Sara Ali Khan felt ‘irritated’ when other actors copied her style: ‘I genuinely greet people like that’


Sara Ali Khan is basking in the releases of two back-to-back films, Ae Watan Mere Watan and Murder Mubarak. Speaking to Hindustan Times in a recent interview, the actor shared that it bothered her when she felt that she was being ‘copied’ by other actors in the industry but it’s a solace to know that her audience knows her style too well.
What Sara said
In the new interview, Sara said, “It used to bother me when I used to think that I was being copied. Like this whole namaste, it’s not like an act. I genuinely greet people like that and suddenly it became a template that every girl was doing.”
further added that now she does not get bothered by it anymore since her audience knows her style. “This wearing Indian clothes at the airport and going with wet hair and all like it used to irritate me when other girls used to do it. But, I realised that my darkshaks (audience) know it’s me. It’s fine, now it doesn’t bother me anymore. They write also, ‘Sara ko copy kar rahi hai.’ (They are copying Sara) Now I find it amusing. Now I’m like accha theek hai been, kar le (Its ok you do it too),” she added.
In Ae Watan Mere Watan, Sara plays Usha, a woman who runs a clandestine radio channel during the British Raj. It also features Sachin Khedekar, Abhay Verma, Sparsh Shrivastav, Alexx O’ Neil and Anand Tiwari in crucial roles. Emraan Hashmi also has a special appearance in the Kannan Iyer directorial as Indian independence movement activist Ram Manohar Lohia.
Sara Ali Khan will be next seen in Anurag Basu’s Metro In Dino. The film also stars Aditya Roy Kapur and Konkona Sen Sharma, and it set for release on September 13.
