In conversation with Soha Ali Khan


By Hindustan Times

Joining films was an obvious choice for Soha. After all, with Sharmila Tagore as her mother and Saif Ali Khan as her brother, she had a family tradition to keep up. She debuted with Dil Maange More but her second movie Rang de Basanti got her awards and critical acclaim.

Having been feted in the UK recently for the British film Life Goes On, she is now shooting for Soundtrack, an official adaptation of the Canadian film It's All Gone Pete Tong.
