Kareena Kapoor Khan and Saif Ali Khan are one of the most followed couples of Bollywood. Their love story is also a very interesting one. She had spoken about how they bonded during the making of Tashan when Saif and she were shooting in Ladakh. But it seems like their relationship was a rather formal one in the early 2000's. In 2014, Kareena Kapoor Khan did an interview with lyricist and talk show host, Niranjan Iyenger. The two worked together in Omkara as well but they did not talk much. The actor won all the awards for his epic performance as Langda Tyagi.
Kareena Kapoor Khan says she was a visitor when he was working with her sister Karisma on Hum Saath Saath Hai. The two were with different partners then. She revealed that Saif Ali Khan was always chivalrous and treated her with immense respect. The actress says that he has a magnetic personality and any woman would love to date him. She said she took the initiative to start a romantic relationship between them.
She had told Niranjan Iyenger, "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."
She also spoke of how Saif Ali Khan reacted with disbelief when he understood that Kareena Kapoor was interested in him. She says she does not know why he felt that way. She had said, "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."
The couple are now happily married for 8 long years and blessed with a couple of sons. Their second child was born in February 2021.
