Sara Ali Khan expresses concern about not being taken seriously due to her humorous nature; Says ‘Why can’t I have a sense of humour and a sense of self-respect?’

Before making her big screen debut in 2018 in Kedarnath, Sara Ali Khan had established a reputation as a self-assured and intelligent young woman through her participation on Koffee with Karan, where she discussed her upbringing by single mother Amrita Singh, her father Saif Ali Khan, and her physical transformation.

MUMBAI : Sara Ali Khan's off-screen persona as a goofy, funny actor contrast with the modest persona of a female star that is typically expected in the industry. However, the actor knows that her vocal and energetic personality can occasionally turn people off, making it difficult for them to take her seriously.

Before making her big screen debut in 2018 in Kedarnath, Sara Ali Khan had established a reputation as a self-assured and intelligent young woman through her participation on Koffee with Karan, where she discussed her upbringing by single mother Amrita Singh, her father Saif Ali Khan, and her physical transformation.

Six years later, while that image has still continued, what has been added to it is her humorous side, her goofy jokes seen during the promotions of her projects, her Instagram reels, captions and more Koffee with Karan appearances.

All that, however, comes with a price and Sara knows it now. “Because I am funny, loud, I can be bindaas, people can think that is all there to me,” she says in an interview with the popular news portal.

“That is also me. If I have two more cups of coffee I will be cracking NG (adult) jokes with you right now. But that doesn’t mean that this (graceful) is not me, that a bit of gravitas isn’t part of my personality. People get into extremes– this or that. Why can’t one be both? Why can’t I have a sense of humour and a sense of self respect?”

When asked if this leads to a tug of war between the image of the star and the personality, she is comfortable putting out there, Sara said it isn’t as long as people “allow me to be who I am” all the time. “Because I am silly, I am funny, that is who I am– but that is not all that I am. I run the risk of sometimes trivalising my own self, I run the risk of people not taking me seriously.”

She saw this first hand when the promo of her latest film Ae Watan Mere Watan dropped. The main reaction she sensed in people for the historical drama was a “hint of surprise.”

“People are shocked and are like, ‘What is this girl doing?’ I am proud of that. I don’t want people to think just because I am funny I am not emotionally sensitive or even a good actor, because that isn’t true,” she added.

The story of Ae Watan Mere Watan chronicles is based on the life of Usha Mehta, a courageous young woman who launched an underground radio station during the Quit India campaign to promote togetherness. On March 21, the movie will be available on Prime Video.
