Sara Ali Khan Recalls Mom, Amrita Singh's Weight Loss Motivation Speech, 'Tun Tun Ka Zamana Gaya'

Sara Ali Khan had started her career in Bollywood in 2018, with the film, Kedarnath. She is just five films old and we love how gracefully she has made herself a part of everyone’s life without the help of her superstar parents, Saif Ali Khan and Amrita Singh. It is a known fact that over the years Sara has transformed from a chubby baby to a fit babe, and she has proudly accepted both sides of herself. Now, Sara recalled how her mother, Amrita motivated her to lose weight to be an actress.

After Amrita Singh’s separation from Saif Ali Khan, Sara Ali Khan lived with her mom and is the closest to her. She always proudly calls herself 'Amrita ki beti' and shares a striking resemblance with her. She is always compared with her mother and she loves it. From guiding her on her weight loss journey to helping her with her films, Amrita Singh never fails to hold her little girl’s hand.

In an interview with RJ Siddharth Kannan, Sara talked about her weight loss journey and how her mom, Amrita Singh motivated her without body-shaming her. Sharing how Amrita made her understand that to be an actor, she needs to lose weight, Sara said:

"Jab main bahut healthy thi, unhone mujhe kaha ke ‘behen Tun Tun ka zamana gaya. Toh agar aapko actor banna hai toh you know… With no body shame involved, she did tell me that I have to be healthier in the other way, the real way. I have to slim down for my own sake also. It was not just the vanity thing, it was also the health thing. That was the time she showed me the mirror."

At a youth summit 2021, Sara Ali Khan had spoken about her physical transformation and how she had once questioned herself if she can do it or not. Sara had said:

“I remember saying ‘you know what I am going to do it’ and I went to the gym and did 3 crunches with a weighted ball in my hand and I couldn’t do more because I was heavy and I was not fit. I left the gym and came home and said that ‘you know what, I don’t know if I can do this. Maybe I can’t'. I woke up the next day and went back to the gym and did 4 crunches and then I did 5 and then I did 6 and I really don’t need to boast but I am down for a crunch challenge right now. I did a lot of abs this morning.”

When Sara had appeared on Karan Johar’s chat show, Koffee With Karan season 6, she had addressed her struggles with PCOD and weight. In a segment when Karan had shown Sara's old videos and had discussed her weight issues, Sara had answered all the questions about dealing with Polycystic Ovarian Disease or PCOD with ease. Sara had revealed:

"I was 96 kgs. 'It will be almost rude to call you fat,' is what you (Saif) said. Actually, I had PCOD. I still do. And, because of that, I think I put on the amount of weight that I did. Because of that, there was also like a hormone problem.”
