The rise of Sayied Sana Khan in the Indian film industry
Since making her debut in the industry with a minor role in the Hindi film Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge (1999), Sayied Sana Khan has carved out a niche for herself as a versatile and reliable performer in Hindi and Tamil films. Her work in productions such as Jab Tak Hai Jaan (2012), Bajrangi Bhaijaan (2015) and Dangal (2017) has earned her critical acclaim and numerous awards, including the Filmfare Award for Best Actress – Female.
Born into a Muslim family in Uttar Pradesh, India, Sana grew up watching Indian cinema and dreaming of becoming an actress. After completing her secondary education, she moved to Mumbai to pursue a career in acting. Her first major role came in Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge, where she played the love interest of Shahrukh Khan’s character. She followed this success with roles in many commercially successful films, including Jab Tak Hai Jaan, Bajrangi Bhaijaan and Dangal.
In addition to her work onscreen, Sana is also devoted to promoting diversity and inclusion within the film industry. In October 2017, she became the first Muslim woman to be appointed an ambassador by the government of India for its initiative Azaadi: The Festival of Freedom. She is also a vocal supporter of women’s rights and speaks out against violence against women.
The transition to being a wife and mother
Being a wife and mother is something that Sayied Sana Khan has been experiencing for the past few years. Sana, who is known for her roles in films like Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge and Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi, has spoken about the transition in an interview with The Quint. She says that it was not always easy but it was definitely worth it.
“It was a gradual process. Initially, I didn’t really understand what marriage meant or what being a wife meant. But gradually, I realised that this is something that I wanted to do and I should try to enjoy it,” she said.
Sana also says that she faced discrimination during her early days as a wife and mother. “People used to stare at me whenever I went out with my husband or with my kids. They would think that I was not capable of doing anything on my own,” she added.
Despite all these challenges, Sana has maintained her positive attitude throughout the process and credits her husband for helping her adjust to the new lifestyle. “My husband has been very supportive throughout this journey. He’s been there for me when things have been tough,” she said. “He’s helped me grow as a person and as a wife.”
Sayied Sana Khan’s return to the Indian film industry
Sayied Sana Khan’s journey in the Indian film industry has been an interesting one. She started her acting career with a small role in the Tamil film, “Thalapathy” (2002). Her breakthrough role came three years later with the Telugu film, “Nuvve Nuvve” (2005), which earned her recognition among Indian film audiences. Khan’s subsequent roles have also garnered positive response from critics and audiences alike. In 2009, she starred in the Hindi film, “Kahaani”, which won her critical acclaim and several accolades at the Filmfare Awards. The following year, she appeared in the critically acclaimed Bengali film, “Tumi To Aisi”. In 2012, Khan starred in the political drama, “Dil Se”.
In 2013, Khan married fellow actor Saif Ali Khan. The couple has since appeared together in several films including the 2014 action thriller, “Bang Bang”.

The effect of her return on her career
Since marrying actor Sayid Khan in 2012, actress Sana Khan’s trajectory in the Indian film industry has shifted notably. Her initial foray into acting with a lead role in the 2003 Telugu film, Saptham Shodhan, would not be replicated for another decade. It was only after Khan married the successful actor that she finally received recognition and critical acclaim for her work in films such as Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge (2007), Veere Di Wedding (2010) and Bajrangi Bhaijaan (2015).
Khan’s husband is now one of the most prominent actors in India, and it is clear that her marriage has had a positive effect on her career. After all, it is often husbands who help their wives achieve prominence in their fields – look at Aishwarya Rai or Priyanka Chopra. While married life may have been difficult at times for Khan, it seems to have ultimately benefitted her career.
