In an interview to Zoom this year, Sara had mentioned how people find it odd that she had an education despite being an actor. Sara, who has a degree in history and political science from the prestigious Columbia University had said, “Being yourself and being yourself not in the way that it’s expected of you. I have an education, even though I am a heroine… so many people are baffled at that and I am so proud of that.”
She had added, “I live with a single mother and yet I think I am more disciplined and scared of disappointing her than most double parents family would be and I am proud of that. As a girl, I have a mind of my own and my opinions and I am proud of that.”
Sara had earlier told Times of India about her passion to be an actor. “I kind of always knew this that I wanted to become an actor but I was also very academically inclined and I don’t think that it really made my desire to become an actor waver because I have grown up in a household where both my parents have always spoken about the importance of education, importance of a balanced life and the importance of experience and exposure in general.”
Sara ventured into acting by playing the leading lady in the 2018 films Kedarnath and Simmba. Both films were commercially successful and the former earned her the Filmfare Award for Best Female Debut. She appeared in Forbes India‘s Celebrity 100 list of 2019.
