Saif Ali Khan also got candid talking about his family, specially his children.

He was asked what is he more excited and nervous about — his own film’s release, wife Kareena Kapoor Khan’s comeback film after the birth of their son Taimur or Sara’s debut? He said, “I am scared for all because when films release, you do get a little scared. A lot of people have put in their hard work. Sara is also alone and her whole life is in front of her, so it feels like my own film is releasing.”Sara Khan who debuts with Kedarnath opposite Sushant Singh Rajput is set to release this year.
Besides the actor’s candid confession on his family and films, he also spoke his mind on the Supreme Court’s decision on playing of the national anthem in cinema halls and the Section 377. “The government knows what’s better. I have always supported the administration. But there are also many other things that need attention. Please also take a look at (Section) 377,” he said.
