Kareena Kapoor, who tied the knot with Saif Ali Khan in 2012, recently recalled rejecting his marriage proposal twice or possibly more than that before saying yes. Kareena said that although it took her some time to agree to get married, she always knew she was going to marry Saif.
Kareena and Saif Ali Khan had collaborated in LOC Kargil (2003) and Omkara (2006), but it was on the sets of the 2008 film Tashan that they fell in love. Saif made the relationship public the same year when he got Kareena’s name in Hindi tattooed on his forearm. After four years of dating, they tied the knot on October 16, 2012.
Kareena, whose latest film Laal Singh Chaddha sees her character Rupa say no to Laals (Aamir Khan) marriage proposal, was asked if she also said no to Saif’s proposal before agreeing. In response, Kareena told Bollywood Bubble, “Yes! I don’t even remember now. Maybe it was twice or more. But what’s important is that I finally said yes.”
When asked what the reason was behind her initial resistance to Saif’s proposal, the actor said: “I was still in love. Maybe I thought it was too early, or that we were getting to know each other a little bit. that was all, that’s all. But I think I was always sure I would marry him.”
Kareena and Saif welcomed their first child – son Taimur Ali Khan, four years after their marriage in 2016. In February last year, they welcomed their second child, Jehangir Ali Khan. The couple will celebrate a decade of their marriage in October this year.
Kareena has been busy lately with promotions of Laal Singh Chaddha which also stars Mona Singh and Naga Chaitanya. In a recent interview with Pinkvilla, the actor said that she is not accepting as many projects as she would like now, as her sons Taimur and Jeh are her priority at the moment.
