Saif Ali Khan may not really be getting into daughter Sara Ali Khan’s life and choices, which is why he was surprised recently when we the asked him about her decision to join politics later in her life.

This year will see Saif playing dad to two other girls — Pooja Bedi’s daughter Aalia Furniturewala as well as Chunky Panday’s daughter Ananya as well. This at a time when most other actors are romancing girls young enough to play their daughters.

“I play an unconventional father in both these films. These films are not about fathers who keep a tab on their daughter’s lives.
