Soha Ali Khan launched her first ever book The Perils Of Being Moderately Famous last evening in Mumbai and the launch was a star-studded affair with her whole family in attendance - Kareena Kapoor Khan, Saif Ali Khan, Kunal Kemmu, Sharmila Tagore and Saba Ali Khan. Or at least Soha Ali Khan doesn't think so.
While sharing an incident from Soha's forced dinner, a few years back, Saif reminisced how his sister accidentally messaged her date that she was "bored" with him.
He recalls how before starting to date Kunal, Soha went on a "boring" date.
Saif Ali Khan and Soha Ali Khan had the flawless brother-sister moment yesterday at the launch of Soha's book titled The Perils of Being Moderately Famous.
"She had gone out for dinner once". Being the gentleman that Saif is, he first took a "go ahead" from Soha. I hope he doesn't mind me saying it. "It was kind of a date". He also recalled a hilarious date of Soha Ali Khan, where she nearly embarrassed herself by calling the date "boring". Pulling her little sister's leg, Saif reveals how then "Soha being Soha" took the guy's phone and deleted her message.
Furthermore, the Heroine actress added, "Soha has always been so polite and if there's anyone in the family that we turn to when amma (Sharmila Tagore) is all worked up, then it's just one person who can control the situation and it's Soha".
Before reading an excerpt from the book, a gracious Sharmila Tagore said she felt like she was attending Soha's debut film premiere. "Yes, ghost stories. Chilling tales of life in the movie industry".
Soha's book is a collection of personal essays through which she recounts with self-deprecating humour what it is like to grow up in one of India's most popular families. I'd like to write a book on something like that or political satire or comedy. "I am not sure", Saif, who is an avid reader, said. So, it would be comedy, political satire of horror.
