She is the glam queen of Bollywood and he is the charming Prince of Pataudi and together, they exude royalty. Kareena Kapoor Khan had never thought that a film would change her life forever and she will meet the man of her dreams in actor, Saif Ali Khan. Whether it is Saif’s charming personality or Kareena’s gorgeousness, this adorable couple is a lethal combination.
It was during the shooting of Tashan, when Bebo and Saif fell in love with each other and just a year into their relationship, Saif had tattooed Kareena’s name on his forearm. After dating for five years, Kareena and Saif sealed the deal on October 16, 2012. Do you know, when Kareena Kapoor was planning to settle down with Saif, many people warned her against it as she was at the peak of her career? But the actress didn’t care about it as she was in love. In 2016, Kareena and Saif welcomed their first child, Taimur Ali Khan and in 2021, the lovely couple welcomed their second baby boy.
On the sets of Omkara, Kareena Kapoor had shared the screen space with Saif Ali Khan. In an appearance on Look Who’s Talking With Niranjan in 2014, Kareena Kapoor Khan had recalled the time and had shared how she and Saif had limited interactions. Talking about the same, Kareena had said, “(Saif) is from a different generation. I've know him, I have been hanging around on sets when Lolo and Saif were shooting in Hum Saath Saath Hai in Jodhpur. Then we did Omkara where we didn't speak and we were with our respective girlfriend and boyfriend at that time and we hardly interacted or even exchanged a word. It was always like 'Good morning.' He used to always be like 'Good morning ma'am,' and, you know, treat me with so much respect. I was like okay because he is anyway so chivalrous.”
In the same interview, Kareena had stated how Saif’s charming personality would attract any woman. Stating who had made the first move in their relationship, the stunning actress had continued, “I was the one who kind of pushed all the right buttons. Saif actually was the kind of guy who will never, is not very forthcoming towards any woman. He will never make the first move. He's too English and restrained in that way.”
Kareena had further revealed Saif’s reaction when she made the first move, “And plus, he was, when I made the first move, he was like 'I can't believe that Kareena Kapoor is doing this.' He was like 'Why?' For me it was (gasps). He was like I didn't know. It was like entire building had crumbled on his head. So I don't know what he meant by that, whether he thought he was very lucky or what. But well, eventually, it all worked out and I think I was responsible for it.”
On her show, What Women Want, Kareena Kapoor Khan and Varun Dhawan had discussed how filmy they are when it comes to love. Kareena had revealed how she had felt when she had first met Saif. Bebo had said, “You and I both have grown up in that same kind of space, where we are continuously in a high-speed shot. It happened with me and Saif. Saif will never...it’s not in his head. He’s like Clint Eastwood. He’s on another Hollywood level and I was in Main Hoon Na, like that Sushmita saree wala flying. That’s why I said we both are quite similar.”
In a world where second marriages are often considered as a tough nut to crack, Kareena and Saif proved everyone wrong!
