Sayyeshaa is the daughter of actors Sumeet Saigal and Shaheen Banu, and the grandniece of actors Saira Banu and Kumar. “He (Kumar) was excited about me entering the film industry. After such a long time there is someone in the family who is getting into the film industry. He blessed me,” Sayyeshaa told PTI.

The 19-year-old actress reveals she is a fan of Kumar and likes his movies including “Saudagar”, “Ram Aur Shyam”, “Mashaal”. “I am fond of these films. He has a great command over the Urdu language. There is lot that I have learnt from him in this sector (industry). Sitting with him at any point is constant learning. He is very well read,” she added.

Kumar and Banu both are looking forward to the release of “Shivaay”, which hits cinema houses on October 28. “They are happy and waiting to see the film. They saw the trailer and it has less of me, so they asked when would I have a proper appearance. I will definitely show them the film,” says Sayyeshaa.

Talking about her grandfather, the newcomer says he speaks less and doesn’t go out much now. “It’s sad when people get old. But still with his age he has his own hair, teeth and has no glasses and it’s fantastic. He speaks less now and goes out less. I miss that but he is still there and that is the best part,” said the actress.
