Bollywood actress Sara Ali Khan has made a significant impact on the Hindi film Industry since her debut in 2018. Born to Bollywood actors Saif Ali Khan and Amrita Singh, the granddaughter of the legendary Indian cricketer, Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi, and is distantly related to the famous poet, Rabindranath Tagore, she has inherited a vast professional as well as cultural legacy.
Sara Ali Khan’s paternal ancestors comprise a diverse mix of Barech Pashtun Afghan, Bengali Hindu, and Assamese Muslim heritage, while her maternal lineage is a blend of Punjabi Sikh and Punjabi Muslim backgrounds.
However, despite being raised in the Muslim faith, Sara has a deep connection to and appreciation for her mother’s religion, Hinduism, which is very natural, especially when someone is raised in a multicultural family. And it is evident from her social media. She frequently posts about visiting temples, especially Kedarnath.
While this is a normal thing, some people have problems with her visiting temples. Her comment section shows the reality of an extremist society.
Nevertheless, the actress has the best answer.
Sara Ali Khan opens up about facing trolling for visiting temples
As witnessed from her social media postings, Sara Ali Khan is a devotee and a follower of Lord Shiva and frequently pays a visit to Shiv temples during her travels or before the release of her movies.
Unfortunately, Sara has been subjected to backlash and criticism, and online trolling due to her strong devotion to the deity. The comment section of Sara’s post was flooded with negative comments questioning her religious beliefs.
Despite receiving negative comments from trolls who questioned her religious background, Sara’s fans and admirers stood by her and supported her right to practice her beliefs.
Sara’s befitting response came shortly after she visited a Mahadev Temple on the auspicious occasion of Maha Shivratri and shared a picture on her social media account. Along with the photo of her offering prayers, Sara wrote, “Happy Mahashivratri. Jai Bholenath.”
Despite the negativity, she remains unperturbed and continues to share beautiful pictures of her temple visits on social media. In a recent interview with NBT, she finally responded with a fitting reply.
During the interview, the diva said,
“If the audience has any complaints about my work, it can be a problem for me too, because I only act for my fans. But if anyone has a problem with my personal things or my lifestyle, I don’t care.”
Recently Sara also visited Bijli Mahadev Temple during her Himachal trip
Sara has shared pictures of bowing before Bijli Mahadev on social media. Sara is staying in Manali with her mother Amrita Singh. Bijli Mahadev Temple is located in the beautiful village of Kashwari in the Kullu Valley, at an altitude of 2460 meters. The temple is dedicated to the deity Shiva. It is also counted among the oldest temples of India.
Meanwhile, on the work front, Sara Ali Khan has a busy schedule as she prepares for her upcoming suspense-thriller movie, ‘Gaslight’. In addition to this project, she is also working on other exciting ventures such as ‘Ae Watan Mere Watan’, ‘Metro…In Dino, and two untitled films, one directed by Laxman Utekar and the other by Jagan Shakti.
Furthermore, fans of the talented actress can look forward to seeing her in the upcoming movie ‘Murder Mubarak’, which is set to release next year.
