Bollywood’s two honeyed sweethearts, clearly so much in love, were at the Zee Carnival in Secaucus, New Jersey at the weekend where they took part in a Q&A session with fans. Kareena was in a teasing mood. When asked what was the sweetest thing that Saif Ali had said to her, Kareena said he hadn’t said anything sweet to her in three days! Saif Ali Khan promised to make up for it! Kareena also said her favourite film was Jab We Met, which of course she starred in with former boyfriend Shahid Kapoor!
Bebo won the Best Female Debut Award with Refugee and has never looked back with triumphs in movies such as Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham and Asoka before stamping her authority as an actress in roles in Chameli (Special Performance Award) Dev and Omkara, for both of which she won Best Actress Awards. 36 China Town was also well received. Jab We Met was then one of the big hits of 2007. One critic said of Jab We Met, “Uninhibited and spontaneous, Kareena Kapoor is the soul of this picture, its biggest strength, as she brings alive her character with not just those smart lines, but with the kind of candor actors seldom invest in their work.” She will soon be seen in the action comedy Golmaal Returns and her voice will be heard in Roadside Romeo, both movies being released around the time of Diwali. Bebo recently said of Saif Ali, “He’s a great lover!…I think he is the man I’ve been waiting for. He’s everything any woman would ask for, everything that a woman needs.” Kareena studied microcomputing in the US.
Saif Ali Khan of course is the son of the Nawab of Pataudi and Sharmila Tagore and the brother of Soha Ali Khan. First catching our eye in Dil Chahta Hai after serving a fairly long apprenticeship in a number of largely forgettable movies, he has also proved his acting ability more recently in films such as Kal Ho Naa Ho and Hum Tum, for which he won a Best Actor Award. Parineeta and the amazing Omkara followed as well as the very interesting Being Cyrus. A graduate of Winchester College in the UK, Saif Ali announced recently that he will be doing a stage show in Sharjah with Kareena and Minissha Lamba. His voice will also be heard in Roadside Romeo.
