If there were a Coolest Star Kid Award in Bollywood, I’d imagine 23-year-old Sara Ali Khan – daughter of actors Saif Ali Khan and Amrita Singh – would’ve won it already. After all, she has redefined the art of the debut that involves star kids securing a Bollywood launch as a return-gift for their surnames, with two back-to-back releases.The actress debuts with Abhishek Kapoor’s Kedarnath and follows it up with Rohit Shetty’s Simmba in a span of two weeks (of course, Karan Johar is producing one of them). Even by nepotistic standards of ridiculous good fortune, the fact that Sara was afforded an extra big-budget film without having to furnish any kind of audience evaluation, seems a bit excessive.

But in Bollywood, all’s well that begins with a Koffee with Karan outing. With her film debut merely weeks away, Sara Ali Khan timed her first public appearance on the chat show – becoming the fourth star kid to grace KWK this season.

None of us expected Sara to stray far away from the sacred female star kid playbook either. It was understood that she’d be docile like Alia Bhatt, evade questions to craft a politically correct image like Sonam Kapoor, and giggle unnecessarily like Parineeti Chopra. But by the end of the show’s 40 minutes, Sara Ali Khan had given the rest of her peers a crash course in individuality – even though she graced the Koffee couch with her famous abba.
