Soha Ali Khan Does Not Want To Play Saif Ali Khan’s Sister In His Films
Soha Ali Khan
Soha Ali Khan says she does not mind being a part of the movies produced under Saif's banner, but is not ready to play his sister.
"At the moment, there are no plans to work under Saif's banner because he has just done 'Love Aaj Kal' and now he is working on 'Agent Vinod'," Soha said.
"Most of the films Saif is planning at the moment will have him as the hero; so that doesn't leave much space for me apart from being the sister of the hero, which is not very exciting.”
"Unless he ventures out and makes something where he is not playing the hero, then maybe we will do something together. I would want that because I like his taste in films a lot," she said.
Saif made a foray into film production by launching his banner Illuminati Films and his first film as producer was ‘Love Aaj Kal’, which was a hit. Directed by Imtiaz Ali, it starred him opposite Deepika Padukone.
When asked if she would be interested in production or direction, she said, "I might venture into production but not anytime soon. At the moment I feel that I'm very new and I love being in front of the camera and I want to continue acting. As far as direction is concerned, I don't think I have the maturity for that at the moment. It's only acting for me now."
Soha started her career with ‘Dil Maange More’ in 2004. She then received critical acclaim for her roles in films like ‘Rang De Basanti’ (2006) and ‘Mumbai Meri Jaan’ (2008).
In her recent film ‘Tum Mile’, which is based on the 2005 Mumbai floods, Soha is paired opposite Emraan Hashmi. Produced under Mahesh and Mukesh Bhatt's Vishesh Films, the film has been directed by Kunal Deshmukh.
Talking about ‘Tum Mile’, Soha said, "Shooting for the flood scenes in the film was a nightmare. I have become hydrophobic now. I don't want to come anywhere close to water. It is actually painful to have a bath in the morning. All the memories come flooding back."
Her future releases include ‘Life Goes On’, ‘Tera Kya Hoga Johnny’ and ‘Accident’.
