Sara Ali Khan credits her mom, Amrita for her grounded upbringing

Now, in an interview with Mid-day, the actress credited her mom for the kind of upbringing she had given to her. Sara said that the more years passed, the more she understood why her mom had raised her and Ibrahim differently, while she could have easily given them a star-studded upbringing as she was an actress. Sara mentioned that she is actually grateful to her mom for giving her a grounded upbringing. Stating that she and Ibrahim didn't grow up understanding that paparazzi are their birthright, Sara said:

"I’m trying not to sound wrong, but I’m trying to be honest also, the more grateful I am for the upbringing that I’ve had. The more years I’m spending here, the more I’m realizing how easy it would have been for my mom to have brought me up differently and how grateful and thankful I am that she didn’t. We didn’t grow up thinking that paparazzi is our birthright.”

Sara Ali Khan talks about how she felt about paps culture before becoming famous

Going further in the interview, Sara Ali Khan talked about her experience of being papped even before her first film, Kedarnath hit the silver screen. Talking more about the same, Sara said that she wanted not to be rude to the paps and was trying to strike a balance, but she didn't like to be photographed before making a name in the industry. Sara mentioned that she always knew that her parents were actors, but she was not famous, so she couldn't understand the concept of being papped. Sharing that all of these happened before the nepotism debate began, Sara stated:

"I was trying to strike the balance between being rude to them (paparazzi) because I didn’t want to be, but also not being photographed because what have I really done to be here? Like why am I being photographed? And all this happened before the whole nepotism chapter and chatter had started like a year into my work. I myself had started feeling that yes my mother is an artist, my father is an actor, but I am not, so why are they behind me? I am really grateful that I kind of grew up thinking like that because now when they photograph me, I have a very good equation with them because somewhere I think I’ve earned it.”
