en Bollywood News Sara Ali Khan breaks silence on getting compared with her Gaslight character; says, “I have never had a royal upbringing”

Sara plays Meesha in Gaslight, a character from a former royal dynasty. The actress denied coming from royalty. She told DNA, “I don’t know why people say that because I don’t come from royalty. I come from Juhu. And I don’t think anybody in the 21st century can really come from royalty. It’s anachronistic.”

Sara claimed that her regular upbringing at the hands of her mother Amrita Singh has made her feel less like a member of the royal family. She said, “I am my father’s daughter and my grandmother’s granddaughter but I have never had a royal upbringing. I haven’t even had a filmy upbringing. It was very regular. I lived with a single mother in Juhu and in Lokhandwala before that. That was my life. It was not like going to filmy parties and dance with the King. That was not the vibe.”

Sara claims that, in contrast to popular belief, she and Meesha are very dissimilar, and their differences go beyond their shared royal heritage. She said, “I think Meesha is a character that isn’t surrounded with love. That’s the first thing about me. I am deeply loved by my mother, father, brother. I don’t have trust issues because I don’t feel lonely. I am very expressive, whether it’s physically or verbally. Whatever is on my mind, you will get to know. Meesha is not like that. She is much more contained. So, it was a very different film and a totally different character to me.”

Meesha is a paraplegic, which stands out in the teaser as one of the main contrasts. Talking about how she prepared for the role, she said, “There was wheelchair training. We had an acting coach, Rupesh sir. We worked on the wheelchair and just tried to make it our own.”

Sara Ali Khan has a promising line-up of films in her kitty. Apart from Gaslight, she has Laxman Utekar's next untitled film, co-starring Vicky Kaushal. She has also signed up to play the lead in the patriotic drama Ae Watan Mere Watan. She plays the role of a freedom fighter in this film, which will be released directly on OTT. She is also a part of Homi Adajania's next, titled Murder Mubarak.
