When did saif ali khan and kareena kapoor start dating
Kareena’s family is a rather famous Punjabi Hindu family, her mother Babita and dad Randhir Kapoor are well respected names in the industry, although mother Babita is ahead in that regard. Kareena’s dad, Randhir Kapoor, never quite hit the heights that he showed promise for, or that certain other members of the illustrious Kapoor family (including his brother, Rishi) managed to hit, a reason that has been cited for Babita leaving him in 1988. Pataudi and Sharmila Tagore (who converted to Islam before marrying the Nawab of Pataudi), he is every bit of a Nawab himself, and has an equally interesting back story.
In fact, rumour has it that Babita wasn’t too keen on her daughter carrying on with Shahid, who wasn’t (according to Babita) an A-lister and wouldn’t go on to have the sort of career that, well, would entitle him to be with Kareena. Considering that Babita was keen on both her daughters (the lovely Karishma being the other, of course) becoming film actresses, she didn’t want her daughter to be with the not-so-illustrious Shahid. Unfortunately, we can’t go into it in full detail except to say that Saif is a bit of a heart-breaker, but it’s important to remember that he was the one who fell for, wooed and planned to secretly marry Amrita Singh before unceremoniously moving on!
A much celebrated and well documented relationship ensued for five years before the couple decided that the time was right to finally settle down, with a proclamation of an impending Saif Ali Khan Kareena Kapoor wedding sending journalists into a tizzy.
But before we get into all of that, let’s just take a quick look at the back story of these two stratospheric Bollywood superstars.
