Previously, on Koffee with Karan, Sara Ali Khan opened up about her relationship with stepmom Kareena Kapoor Khan. She revealed that it was Amrita Singh who dressed her up for Saif and Kareena’s wedding in 2012 and that she addresses Bebo by her name cause she wouldn’t be comfortable being called ‘Choti Ma’.
Now, in an interview with the Indian media, Kareena talked about her relationship with her husband Saif Ali Khan’s children from his first marriage with Amrita Singh and how she can only play the role of a friend and not a mother to them.
“I have always said this to Saif, Sara, and Ibrahim that I can only be their friend, I can never be their mother because they already have an amazing mother who’s brought them up spectacularly. I’m meant to be their friend. I love them dearly and whenever I am wanted or my advice needed, I’m there for both at any point in their life,” she stated.
Speaking of Sara, she said, “Sara is a rare combination of beauty and brains and that has happened to the Indian film industry after a long time. She can hold a conversation with anyone and at the same time give a shot in which she’s looking absolutely gorgeous. She has all it takes and I think she will be one of the brightest stars on the screen. I can only hope and pray for the best for her.”
Kareena is confident that Sara’s debut film, Kedarnath will turn out to be a big hit. “I am quite sure that the film will be a super hit but irrespective of that, I think she is a born star.”
Kareena also opened up about the attention that her son Taimur receives from the media. “Taimur can’t run away from his popularity and neither can his parents. When I saw the doll, I wondered what I was supposed to say. But Saif pointed out that it’s because people love him so much and such things are a blessing for him. There is so much of genuine warmth for our son that it’s bad to stop people from clicking his pictures or making his dolls,” she said.
