The bubbly and chirpy girl from the royal Pataudi family, Sara Ali Khan debuted into Bollywood with Kedarnath. Her amazing performance bagged her several other roles in interesting genres of films. Apart from being a happy-go-lucky person, the actress is also a hard core foodie. She tempted us a lot with her delicious spreads in London some time back. She was enjoying a lavish breakfast with breads, meat and cheese with her mother. She even took an elaborate 12-course meal during her stay in London with her mother, Amrita Singh. While she’s in Turkey, we are loving her vibrant and bright outfits. All her pictures seem straight out of a painting as she hops from one tourist destination to another. In fact, when she was in Kashmir, we even saw her cooking something over a bonfire. Seems like travel is on the cards for the Atrangi Re actress as she’s in a new city/country, every time we refresh our feed. 

While enjoying her vacation in Istanbul, the actress has shared several glimpses of the city on her stories and her feed. While in Istanbul, she posed for the camera as she shared her morning view with us. She took to her Instagram stories to show us the picturesque background of the Old City of Istanbul, Constantinople as tagged in her location. We spot her comfortably seated in a chair, sipping her cup of coffee on a bright, sunny morning, wearing an orange tank top and sky blue tracks. She even wore an orange hat to complete the look. We’re assuming what she’s drinking is Turkish coffee. Here, take a look.
