There’s no denying that star kids are always under the scanner. The attention they receive and the scrutiny they face is beyond imaginable.

Since Saif Ali Khan and Amrita Singh’s daughter Sara Ali Khan made her debut with Abhishek Kapur’s Kedarnath, the budding actress has been snapped every time she steps out of her house. She is two-films-old in the industry and is taking giant leaps on the work front. Her films, Simmba and Kedarnath released within a span of 3 months and all eyes are set on her other projects like the Love Aajkal reboot tentatively titled Aajkal and Coolie No. 1.
Sara is carrying her grandmother Sharmila Tagore, mother Amrita Singh, father Saif Ali Khan’s legacy forward and feels that people are waiting for a star kid to make a mistake and she’s aware of it.
But she doesn’t take it seriously. During a recently held event, Sara said, “With any form of privilege, there is a setback to it. You are as burdened as you want to be, and you take as much pressure as you want to. I am acutely aware that I come from a film background and, therefore, the scrutiny and attention I receive is more than it would have been otherwise. But I don’t look at it as a burden, because if I do, then I won’t be able to perform.” She then added, “Star children do get it easy, but it also comes with scrutiny and there are a lot of people who are waiting for a star kid to make a mistake or fall. I am aware of that. But I don’t take all that seriously.”
