After two years, IIFA Awards is being held with much grandeur in the UAE and needless to say, many celebrities have flown specifically to attend the event. In fact, some of them will also be giving their debut live performances on stage with this year and the stars are super excited. Newbie Sara Ali Khan, who made her debut with Kedarnath, will also be present and she recently attended the green carpet of IIFA Rocks which was held on June 3. From speaking about the performances she is looking forward to, to reacting to Salman Khan’s joke, the actress in her usual bubbly self, spoke about it exclusively to Bollywood Hungama.
Readers would be aware that stars flew to Abu Dhabi a couple of days prior to the event to continue either with their practice sessions for stage performances or to attend the IIFA 2022 press conference held in the city. Amongst the latter was Salman Khan, Sara Ali Khan, Nora Fatehi, Shahid Kapoor, among others and during the event Salman Khan was her usual fun self when he tried to pull Sara’s legs. After answering one of the media questions, Salman teased Sara by asking ‘knock knock’. While Sara went to respond by asking, ‘Who’s there’, Salman added, ‘Sara’. When Sara further questioned, ‘Sara, who?’, Salman went on to sing the song, ‘Saara Zamaana’ leaving everyone including the actress in splits.
When we asked Sara Ali Khan to react to the same, she told Bollywood Hungama, “I found it really funny. I think people have just gotten used to it. They see me and pehle it’s like ‘knock-knock’ nikalta hai and phir Hello nikal tha hai. Jaise aap logon ko aadab karte ho, Namaste karte ho waise mujhe ‘knock knock’ karte hain log.” In an earlier interview, Sara Ali Khan had confessed that she is obsessed with Knock Knock jokes and she often cracks it even on the sets of the film.
On the other hand, Sara Ali Khan also spoke about attending IIFA 2022 and how it is a celebration for the film fraternity as a whole. “Honestly, I think what’s important is that we as a fraternity are being able to get out of our country and celebrate each other together,” she maintained. She also talked about the success of her recent release Atrangi Re. “I think that I am very much aware of the love that I have been given. And I’m just grateful for it. And now I just need to keep doing more and hoping to be able to get better and more,” she concluded.
