There is no denying the fact that stepmoms usually get a bad rap in pop culture. There are innumerable stereotypes about them that have been in place for ages now. But the time is changing and so is the relationship between stepchildren and their stepparents. The best example is of Sara Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan.

Sara, who is the daughter of popular actors Saif Ali Khan and Amrita Singh, has never shied away from talking about her relationship with Kareena Kapoor Khan, who married her father Saif in 2012.

In an interview, the newcomer spoke at length about her equation with Bebo, “I do think that Kareena is my friend, but more than that, she is my father’s wife. I respect her, and realise that she makes my father happy. We belong to the same profession, and have a similar world, thus, our conversations include that as well.”

Talking about her stepbrother Taimur Ali Khan and the kind of relentless media attention he is getting, Sara said, “Taimur has the ability to lighten up everybody’s mood by just being there. I am happy to see my father enjoy fatherhood with Taimur because, while he has been a great father to me and Ibrahim, he is at the age and stage in his life where he gets to enjoy fatherhood the way it should be enjoyed. I see the happiness and contentment Taimur brings to his life; I love that. Taimur has helped our family bond like never before.”

Khan went on to add, “I can understand why my father is concerned with Taimur getting attention. Perhaps, he doesn’t want him to grow up feeling special or entitled. We can’t do anything about the media attention he gets; it’s part of the way things function at this point of time. If my father and Kareena inculcate—which I am sure they do—discipline in him, and ensure that he doesn’t get attached to this attention, it will be fine.”

On the work front, Sara Ali Khan has just wrapped up her next film Aaj Kal. Directed by well-known filmmaker Imtiaz Ali, the movie also stars Kartik Aaryan. She is currently shooting for Coolie No. 1 with Varun Dhawan.
