Kareena Kapoor Khan and Saif Ali Khan have been married for several years and have two sons – Taimur and Jeh. But, it seems like someone was out there warning about Khan about the actress during their initial days of dating. When Akshay Kumar realized they were ‘connecting’ on the set of their 2008 film Tashan, he warned Saif Ali Khan about her, according to Kareena Kapoor. In the end, Kareena and Saif fell in love and married in 2012.
Kareena Kapoor Khan recently revealed she and Saif formed a ‘karmic connection’ while working together. In an interview with Twinkle Khanna, she said, “Saif and I were always supposed to do a couple of films together, which we never ended up doing. I always said no to them.”
Kareena recalled Akshay Kumar’s reaction to the budding on-set relationship. “Saif and Akshay were talking, and Akshay got the vibe that Saif and I were connecting. Akshay took Saif in the corner, and he was like, ‘Listen, this carefully. They’re dangerous girls and this is a dangerous family, dekh ke reh’. He was like, ‘Don’t mess with her’, was his vibe, like, ‘You’re barking up the wrong tree’. Saif was like, ‘No, no, I know, I’ll figure her out’.”
Since then, Kareena Kapoor Khan and Saif Ali Khan have collaborated on films like Kurbaan and Agent Vinod. Taimur Ali Khan and Jehangir Ali Khan are their two sons.
She has previously spoken openly about her courtship with Humans of Bombay, saying, “So 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 & sinker.”
On the work front, Kareena Kapoor Khan was last seen in the late Irrfan Khan’s final theatrical release, Angrezi Medium. She’ll next be seen in Laal Singh Chaddha, the official Hindi version of the Hollywood blockbuster Forrest Gump.
