Mom wanted me to be a lawyer: Soha
Soha Ali Khan, a graduate of Oxford University, chose to become an actress like her mother Sharmila Tagore. But she says her star mom is not happy with her choice of profession and wants her daughter to be a lawyer.
Soha, who holds a masters degree from the London School of Economics and Political Science, made her Bollywood debut with Dil Maange More!!! in 2004. Most of her movies didn’t do well at the box-office, but she was appreciated for her performance in movies like Rang De Basanti and Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster Returns.
‘My mother is still not happy with what I am doing. Even now she calls me each Sunday and says ‘You can still be a lawyer, it’s not too late. You must go to Harvard (university).’ She keeps saying
‘You have studied so much and you are not making use of it.’
‘I’ve to tell her that I am really enjoying what I am doing. I am happy, but as a mother she is worried about her child...Her main concern is what I’ll do in the next 10 to 20 years,’ Soha said.
Sharmila may have reservations about Soha’s career choice, but she is cool with her live-in relationship with her boyfriend Kunal Kemmu.
