If the rumour mills are to be believed, the next Bollywood couple to tie the knot will be Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor. Ever since they started dating, the couple have been rather open about their relationship and many people have been speculating when they will make it official.
Over the week-end, Saif’s mother, Sharmilla Tagore made an unofficial announcement when she said, “”I don’t have any objection to Saif and Kareena getting married and they will get married soon.”
Tagore was speaking at a meeting of the Censor Board of Film Certification (CBFC) of which she is the chairperson in Jodhpur.
“We are very happy about their marriage. Kareena is an intelligent girl,” she said when asked about the much-anticipated wedding.
However, neither Saif nor Kareena have spoken about their marriage plans. In previous interviews, Saif merely commented saying that he knew Kareena was the girl for him. He went on to say, “”I’m now looking forward to settling down with Kareena. Our marriage will happen very shortly, as soon as we both have a little less work on hand and we can give the marriage quality time.”
“I’m extremely and completely committed [to Kareena]. I’ve found true love and I’d like people to respect that as much as I do.”
It is said that both Saif’s and Kareena’s parents have blessed the couple.
Apparently when Saif was shooting for a film in Bangkok some time ago, Kareena had the opportunity of bonding with his children, Sara and Ebrahim.
A close friend of Saif said, “There’s a kind of fierce and single-minded determination in Saif to make this relationship work for keeps. And, it isn’t a defiant determination to disprove the cynics who say it won’t last. Saif doesn’t give a damn about what people say. He has always gone by his gut feelings, regardless of others.”
We will be keeping our eyes and ears peeled on developments of any upcoming wedding plans!
