Kareena Kapoor Khan and Saif Ali Khan are one of the most powerful couples in Bollywood. The couple who shares an age-gap of ten years dated for years before they got married.
Kareena Kapoor who is back to her acting ways recently spoke to an online web portal about how their relationship started and how Saif has helped her out in her career:
‘It started out great. I did amazing films. But then for a year, I didn’t work. I felt like my career was over. I was told to ‘reinvent’, become size zero. Everyone goes through a lull in the career. But as an actor, it’s worse – there are so many eyes on you!? ‘Somehow through my life, I’ve been blessed with people who have supported me thoroughly! Just when I thought I was falling, Saif caught me. I’d met him before, but while we were filming Tashan, something changed.
I wore my heart on my sleeve! He was so charming; I fell for him hook, line and sinker. I remember while shooting in Ladakh and Jaisalmer, we’d go on long bike rides for some alone time. We’d enjoy the beauty, have great conversations and just bond.’
The Veere Di Wedding actress married Saif in 2012. Saif was previously married to actress Amrita Singh and they had two children — daughter Sara Ali Khan and son Ibrahim Ali Khan.
‘He’s 10 years older than me and has two kids. But for me, he was just Saif who helped me heal and love myself. Maybe it was the fact that we’re so different – he’s more private and not ‘Bollywoodised’. I imbibed that from him. I learnt to balance things and not let them get to me.
The couple was blessed with a son, Taimur, in 2016. ‘Taimur is a part of me. I can’t go an hour without him. He’s always with me wherever I am. He makes me want to work harder every day,’ she said.
On the work front, Kareena is gearing up for the release of Good News and will also be seen in multi-starrer Takht.
