New pics! Sara Ali Khan proves that she has a lot in common with stepmum Kareena
Both the ladies love Saif Ali Khan and are each other's best friends! But there's one more common thing...
A mother-daughter relationship is both powerful and unique and grows stronger as the years pass by. This means that they may not only share similar personalities, have many things in common, but sometimes may even look alike.
Take for instance, Sara Ali Khan Pataudi.
Taking a fashionable cue from stepmum
The Columbia University pass out is all set to make her movie debut soon, and is already taking a cue on fashion from her stylish stepmum Kareena.
Sara was recently spotted donning a gorgeous blue Sabyasachi lehenga and pouted and posed just like the new mum.
And, while on camera Kareena and Sara share a similar stylish attitude, in real lives they share equal respect and love for each other.
In fact, Kareena often gushes about her closeness to her two stepkids. She even stated in a interview that Sara is her "bar-hopping partner."
"They are wonderful kids. They love me and I love them. We are like the best of friends. They are my family. I love my family to be around me all the time. It grounds you and keeps you in a happy space. Sara, Ibrahim, my mother-in-law (Sharmila Tagore), Soha, Sabah… We all are close to each other," she said.
Similar styles, similar taste
The two ladies also seem to share a similar fashionable interest. No wonder then just days after Sara was spotted in a gorgeous blue ensemble, Kareena donned the same colour too.
In the same interview Kareena shared that both share similar habits and often hang out together. "We are like two college girls painting the town red. She’s my bar hopping partner. I enjoy my equation with her. She’s such a bright girl too. I wish I was so well-read," she shared about stepdaughter Sara.
No wonder then both share a similar taste in fashion. Not to forget, both ooze confidence and elegance every time they step out. But the fact that they are so friendly with each other, goes to show how much Saif and Amrita have put in to help them welcome Kareena into their family.
There may be no tougher task in the world than to help your children cope with your divorce and a subsequent remarriage, but it is possible.
3 ways to help kids accept your new partner
- Do not hide anything from them: Telling your kids the truth about what’s going on is paramount. Tell them why the marriage failed, but do it without badmouthing your former spouse .Admit to your own mistakes and faults that contributed to the failure of the marriage – kids see these things clearly anyway! Reassure them that it was in no way their fault. Tell them you love them unconditionally and you’re committed to help them through the difficult road that lies ahead.
- Protect them from negativity: Being honest with your kids does not require that you expose them to all the violence of emotion involved. Keep the negativity as private as possible.
- Treat them as your equal: Adults have to learn to talk. If you have something to tell your former spouse, don’t ask your kids to tell them for you; tell them yourself.
