Exclusive: Sara Ali Khan reveals mother Amrita Singh favourite kitchen ingredient for healthy hair
What does beauty mean to you?
“Being yourself. For me, beauty has always been the same, which is: be yourself. Be simple, minimalistic, natural and stay happy.”
You’re going to be part of a beauty campaign after 35 years, how does that feel?
“Sometimes it feels like 35 years is a lifetime, sometimes it feels like it was just yesterday. But I believe I’ve always belonged to this industry and doing any work in it has always been a privilege to me whether it’s been my first film, or my last commercial. I’m just happy to be doing the work that I love and it makes it extra special that I’m coming together for this with my daughter.”
How do you indulge in self-care?
“I think just being able to sit with yourself for about half an hour a day and staying positive and happy is a form of beauty that is more sustainable and something that I encourage even my daughter to do.
What’s your advice to Sara?
“Don’t try to be anybody else, you’re most beautiful when you are you, because there is no other you.”
What are the habits you’ve picked up from your daughter?
“My daughter’s very motivated when it comes to working out, and she believes that fitness can make you feel better and then look better. It’s something that she tries to inculcate in my life too. So, I’ve started a little bit of yoga and stretching and I hope to continue that.”
Do you have a beauty memory you cherish with Sara?
“When Sara was much younger she would play with my things in my wardrobe and my dresser. I used to tell her that everything I have is yours. And now when she buys any kind of makeup product, she laughingly says to me, ‘everything that’s mine is yours’.”
