In an industry which is notorious for real hook-ups, imaginary hook-ups and fake hook-ups to promote a film, Sara Ali Khan has been immune to any link-ups although she is one film old and her next (Simmba) is almost here. Though being single does not give many actresses a free pass from gossip. In Sara’s case, it seems to have worked. She says emphatically, “Yes! That is right I have not dated any man, therefore you have not been able to read news of my link ups at all. I am single at the moment.” She further brags smilingly, “Link ups… ho bhi nahi sakta hai. kyuki mein kissi ladke ko sharma kar ‘jee batayiye’ nahi bolungi.” [Link ups cannot happen with me, because I am not the kind of a girl who can be pretentious. Also I shall never talk to any boy in a coy manner, say demurely, never).
So the next question, what would she look for in a guy. Sara says, “I have yet not prepared any list as to what qualities in a boy will appeal to me.” But one thing is, “I would still prefer a boy with a little bit of a humour. It’s important that he needs to be funny.”
Unlike her father, Saif Ali Khan, when he joked in KJo’s Koffee with Karan recently that the only attribute her beau should have is that he should have money, she had shrieked, “It’s so wrong.” She says, “Having money is not important to me. All in all he needs to have a balance of humour and intellect. He should also be able to listen to me about various things that we might discuss.” Ok, what about the basics — clean shaven or a man with a moustache? She ponders and gushes, “As of now… and I don’t know why... but I like men with a moustache.”
