Actress Soha Ali Khan is waiting to get some bespoke pieces of jewellery from her mother, veteran actress Sharmila Tagore. For now, she just enjoys borrowing them.
“Amma (my mother) has gifted me a lot of it, which hasn’t reached me yet. She says, ‘This one is yours and this one’, and I know that I will get it one day,” the 34-year-old said here Friday at the inauguration of Glamour Style Walk, a high-end jewellery exhibition.
“But I borrow a lot of jewellery from her and she has some beautiful things. One special piece are the ruby earrings which are apparently mine and those are my favourite,” she added.
Soha, who belongs to a royal family, being the daughter of late Nawab of Pataudi Mansoor Ali Khan, says she never felt the need to buy jewellery pieces.
“I am lucky that I have got a lot, so I have never had the need to buy anything because I don’t know if I would be able to afford it myself. But Amma has a lot of jewellery, our grandmothers collected a lot of it through the ages and that too very different,” Soha said.
“So from Bengal traditional gold jewellery, from Bhopal that kind of mughal, polki and jadau… so all of those are very beautiful,” she added. Soha is currently shooting for her film “Calling Mr. Joe B Carvalho”.
