Saba Ali Khan, who loves to share throwbacks, especially of her family members, added a precious one to her Instagram entry recently. The picture happens to be a throwback of her mother and veteran actress Sharmila Tagore. It was from an old Lux commercial that Sharmila Tagore did. The actress looks stunning in the advertisement. Her hair is styled in a bouffant. She can be seen sporting her signature winged eyeliner look and pink lipcolour. Sharing the picture, Saba Ali Khan wrote: Style icon. Always and forever. Ma… You’ll always be in vogue! Love you.” She added the hashtags #motherdaughter, #grace, #beauty and #star among others. A few decades later, Sharmila Tagore’s daughter-in-law Kareena Kapoor also became the face of the same brand.
The comments section of the post was filled with comments from the veteran actress’ fans. “Always an icon for us,” commented a fan. “Forever style icon and my favourite,” read another comment. “Evergreen beauty,” added another.
