Sara Ali Khan Discusses the Influence of Her Signature Style on Other Actresses


In the ever-evolving landscape of Bollywood celebrity trends, actress Sara Ali Khan stands out, not just for her performances on-screen but also for her signature style that resonates with a sense of authenticity and cultural grounding. The “Kedarnath” and “Simmba” fame actress has recently opened up about her distinctive greeting manner and dressing choice, which have garnered attention and, in some instances, have been imitated by her peers.

Sara Ali Khan’s presence in Bollywood has been marked by a flair that pays homage to her Indian roots, regularly seen through her “namaste” greeting and the choice of Indian attire for travel looks, particularly noted at airports. This style has not gone unnoticed and, indeed, has spurred a wave of emulation among fellow actresses—a phenomenon that initially irked the young star.

This candid revelation came to light in a conversation with Hindustan Times, amidst the actress’s hectic schedule promoting her latest cinematic ventures—a Netflix thriller titled ‘Murder Mubarak’ and an upcoming historical drama on Prime Video, ‘Ae Watan Mera Watan’. Sara explained that the imitation of her traditional greeting and wardrobe choices was once a source of irritation. She expressed that her genuineness in greeting people with a ‘namaste’ had turned into a repeated pattern among other actresses.

Nevertheless, Sara has come to terms with this mimicry, attributing the identification of her unique persona to the awareness of her audience, her “darshaks” (spectators). They have, in their ways, acknowledged her originality, often pointing out others who seem to follow in her footsteps. The actress, with a sense of amusement, now accepts these occurrences lightheartedly, conceding that it no longer bothers her as it once did.

Beyond these style insights, Sara Ali Khan is setting the stage for a significant year, reminiscent of her impactful debut period in 2018. In ‘Murder Mubarak’, she is cast alongside Vijay Varma and shares the screen with a formidable ensemble that includes the likes of Karisma Kapoor, Dimple Kapadia, and Pankaj Tripathi. Her dynamic pairing with Varma has already garnered praise, prompting excitement for the duo’s on-screen chemistry.

Equally anticipated is ‘Ae Watan Mera Watan’, a period film slated for a March 21 release, which will exhibit Sara in the novel role of a freedom fighter. Her transformation for the role has piqued the interest of both fans and cinephiles alike, who are eager to witness the narrative unfold.

Reflecting on the back-to-back release schedule of her films, only seven days apart, Sara penned an emotional note that acknowledges the whirlwind of emotions and effort akin to her initial double-feature debut. She experiences the same juxtaposition of roles and cinematic genres, realizing a full-circle moment.

As Sara Ali Khan continues to carve her path in the Indian film industry, her ability to embrace the intricacies of her evolving image—alongside her professional accomplishments—demonstrates a maturity that transcends her years. Her forthcoming features promise to showcase her versatility as an actress, while her authentic approach to celebrity style continues to strike a chord with audiences, even if it sparks a trend that goes beyond her personal choices.
