Sara Ali Khan’s recent saree appearance at Cannes 2023 brought to mind for admirers the late grandmother Sharmila Tagore. Sara’s reaction to the parallels was as follows.

After making her Cannes red carpet debut in an Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla lehenga, actor Sara Ali Khan wore another creation by the designer duo on day 2 of the ongoing international film festival. She wore a monochrome fusion saree-style outfit, which reminded fans of her grandmother, veteran actor Sharmila Tagore. In response to the comparisons, Sara called her ‘badi amma (grandmother)’ the ‘epitome of beauty and grace’.

Sara’s Instagram story

Reacting to a collage of her Cannes look and one of Sharmila Tagore in a similar hairstyle decades ago, Sara wrote on Instagram Stories on Thursday, “Epitome of beauty and grace – my lovely badi amma (hug emoji)… Even the suggestion of this comparison is beyond flattering (heart eyes emojis).” Sara is the daughter of actor Saif Ali Khan and ex-wife, actor Amrita Singh.

On Wednesday, Sara wore a white Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla saree-inspired look on Cannes Film Festival 2023 red carpet. While the reaction to her first two Cannes looks – a beige lehenga for the festival’s opening day and a black gown at the opening night party – was lukewarm, fans gave Sara the thumbs up for her third look at Cannes 2023. The actor had taken to Instagram to share a series of pictures of herself posing in the designer look.

One fan commented, “That Sharmila Tagore hair.” Another said, “Replica of your grandma Sharmila Tagore ji with her 60s-70s look in your first picture… breathtaking.” Another commented, “Sara and white – what a combination.”
