Need no queue to marry, says Soha Ali Khan

Reports that actor Soha Ali Khan is going to tie the knot soon with her long-time boyfriend, Kunal Khemu, have been doing the rounds for a while.

But is the couple waiting for Soha’s big brother Saif Ali Khan to marry his lady love Kareena Kapoor before they settle down?

If I have to get married, I don’t have to stand in line and wait. There have been no public statements either from Kunal or me about marriage. Yet people continue to speculate.


Soha’s mom, Sharmila Tagore, has apparently gifted the couple an apartment, where Soha and Kunal are expected to move in to post marriage. Soha is reportedly living in with Kunal, but she denies it.

Meanwhile, on the work front, the actor has been signed up for the sequel of Tigmanshu Dhulia’s ‘Sahib Biwi Aur Gangster’, in which she plays Irrfan Khan’s wife. The character in the film has been styled along the lines of the role that Sharmila Tagore portrayed in Anupama – that of a suppressed daughter. Soha is kicked about getting the opportunity to act opposite Irrfan again, after ‘Dil Kabaddi’.

Acting is like playing a sport. When the person paired opposite you is talented, the game becomes interesting.

says Soha. And while acting is priority now, Soha too wants to turn producer some day, like bro Saif.

I want to turn producer, but right now, I see a lot of potential in the films that I am acting in,” she says and adds, “The nature of our profession is very unstable, so we cannot plan anything based on the income we draw as it’s not regular. I totally support it when big actors venture out into production; it makes sense to have a back-up plan.

And the back-up plan would include making the most of opportunities.

When the going is good, it makes sense to cash in. Brand endorsements or making appearances are good image-building tools, as long as you are being selective. Sometimes filmmakers cast you in films depending on how much you are being written about or seen around.
