While an official announcement hasn't been made yet, it's almost certain that Saif Ali Khan's daughter with Amrita Singh, Sara Ali Khan, will make her debut in Bollywood with a top banner film. Rumors are hinting at a film with Hrithik Roshan to be produced by Karan Johar, though an official word from Dharma Productions hasn't come yet.

However, Sara has found support in her father Saif Ali Khan, who's quite excited to see his daughter make her Bollywood debut.

In an interview with HT cafe, the actor spoke about the advice that he gave Sara.

He said: "First, you must listen rather than talk. Everybody talks here, but silence is very interesting in Bollywood. Decide what kind of an actor you want to be and work hard. That's the first thing. It's a very creative and a wonderful job. I bless Sara for what she has learned. She has wanted to do this since she was two years old, but I asked her to finish college first. In fact, she has done theater in the US as well. She wants to enjoy the acting and not treat it as a superficial, glamorous profession."

He added that the duo gets along very well. "Sara and I have an interesting age gap, it's not so big, so we can share a lot of things. So, the lines are blurred between father and brother anyway. I can't be too strict with her because I feel hypocritical. We have long chats and I enjoy them."

Saif also took Sara to Italy where the two bonded over art, life, and films. "I have a wonderful relationship with her, wherein I am like a guide, a friend and a philosopher. But we discuss lots of things. We went on a holiday to Italy and spoke about art, life, and recently, about films as well. I've given her so much advice. I said, "Write them down and treat them like the Ten Commandments. It's everything I have learnt. And your mother (Amrita Singh) also taught me so much when I first came to Mumbai."
