Biography: Soha Ali Khan has endured a tough yet fruitful journey in Bollywood. After initial dismissal of her performances, she has worked hard to establish herself in the Hindi film industry.
Born and brought up in a religious environment, Soha credits her upbringing to her grandmother. As a student, she was bright and would regularly participate in plays. After completing her college education, she decided to pursue acting in films. Despite concerns from the family, she finally made her debut with Dil Maange More. Though the movie bombed at the box office, Soha got many subsequent offers. After failing to raise any eyebrows with her performances in movies such as Shaadi No.1 and Pyaar Mein Twist, she gave a critically acclaimed character portrayal in Ahista Ahista. The movie was directed by Imtiaz Ali and though it failed at the box office, Soha got plaudits for her performance. Then came Rang De Basanti, which was her first commercial success and also fetched her much acclaim. Movies like Mumbai Meri Jaan did work some magic at the box office while others like Dil Kabaddi, Dhoonte Reh Jaaoge were failures. She was the solo actress in the much hyped Tum Mile but despite great music, the film sank without a trace. Her upcoming films are Airport and Sahib Biwi Aur Gangster 2.
Soha is in a serious relationship with Kunal Khemu for almost three years now. Both are planning to tie the knot soon as well. She is very close to her actor brother Saif Ali Khan, whom she considers her best buddy. Mother Sharmila Tagore is her Idol and her relationship has got the stamp of approval from the veteran actress.
Apart from appearing in films, Soha has also done a lot of advertisements and modelling. She considers herself lucky in that she has been able to share space with her mother and brother in some of these ads. As everything has settled down properly for Soha, she is looking to make her mark in the industry.
