Sharmila Tagore is an epitome of grace and poise. She was recently honoured at the Hello! Hall Of Fame awards. She gives every young actress a run for money with the way she has carried herself for so many years. At the red carpet, she interacted with media and guess what the hot topic of discussion was? Her two year old grandson who is the most popular celeb out there, Taimur Ali Khan! She was asked again what she thought about all the attention on him and she had a very interesting take. She said that she chilled out a little bit after getting an advice from her eldest grand daughter Sara AlI Khan on this.
Speaking about Taimur she said, “I suppose we have to live with it. This is the age of social media. I don’t think anything can be done about it.” Having said that she also said, “I am very old-fashioned. I don’t think children should be exposed to all this.” She then said, “However I learnt from Sara (Sara Ali Khan, Taimur’s half-sister) to say if you can’t beat them then, join them.” But all said and done, she said, “I guess I should be happy about it but I don’t think it’s very good for the child.”
Sharmila spoke about getting a Lifetime Achievement Award at Hello and said, “I think it’s a great honour. It’s a recognition from very prestigious media house so, I am very honoured. I suppose they are giving me award for working many years in this wonderful film industry.”
