“He helped me heal and love myself” – Kareena Kapoor Khan REVEALS all about her love story with Saif Ali Khan

Being one of the most talked about couples even today, Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan have had one of the most unconventional love stories. When they fell in love, Saif was a divorced man with two kids and Kareena was still getting over her break up. They have an age difference of over 10 years but it has never bothered the couple. Sharing her story with Humans of Bombay, Kareena Kapoor Khan wrote a heart touching note about what Saif means in her life and being a mother to Taimur Ali Khan has changed her. Besides that she also spoke about how Saif asked her mother Babita’s permission before the two of them started living in together.

“He helped me heal and love myself” - Kareena Kapoor Khan REVEALS all about her love story with Saif Ali Khan

In her recent note to Humans of Bombay, Kareena Kapoor Khan started off with the note about what inspired her to act and the answer was undoubtedly her sister Karisma Kapoor. “When I came back home from boarding school, Karisma had just started acting. I was in awe of her–I remember her in Dil Toh Pagal Hai, being so passionate. She held herself with such pride through everything; watching her made me want to act too. So when my time came, she taught me to wade through this industry as a woman.”

Furthermore, she spoke about the kind of lull that came in her career and that’s when she met Saif Ali Khan. “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. I remember while shooting in Ladakh & Jaisalmer, we’d go on long bike rides for some alone time. We’d enjoy the beauty; have great conversations & just bond!”

She added, “We’d been dating for awhile, when he said he’s not 25 & can’t keep dropping me home every night. So he told my mom, ‘I want to spend the rest of my life with her. We want to live together.’ My mom was cool with it. It’s so easy with him. Even when we decided to get married, it felt right.”

Kareena Kapoor Khan also spoke about how being a mother to Taimur had changed her for the better. Here’s a look at the post:

“When I came back home from boarding school, Karisma had just started acting. I was in awe of her–I remember her in ‘Dil Toh Pagal Hai’, being so passionate. She held herself with such pride through everything; watching her made me want to act too. So when my time came, she taught me to wade through this industry as a woman. It started out great–I did amazing films. But then for a year I didn’t work. I felt like my career was over; I was told to ‘re-invent’, become size 0. Everyone goes through a lull in their career. But as an actor, it’s worse–there are so many eyes on you! Somehow through my life, I’ve been blessed with people who have supported me thoroughly! 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. I remember while shooting in Ladakh & Jaisalmer, we’d go on long bike rides for some alone time. We’d enjoy the beauty, have great conversations & just bond! He’s 10 years older than me & has 2 kids. But for me, he was just Saif–he helped me heal & love myself. Maybe it was the fact that we’re so different–he’s more private & not ‘Bollywoodised’, but I imbibed that from him. I learnt to balance things & not let them get to me. We’d been dating for awhile, when he said he’s not 25 & can’t keep dropping me home every night. So he told my mom, ‘I want to spend the rest of my life with her. We want to live together.’ My mom was cool with it. It’s so easy with him. Even when we decided to get married, it felt right. A few years later, I was blessed with our son, Taimur. Motherhood is the greatest thing that’s happened to me. Taimur is a part of me–I can’t go an hour without him. He’s always with me wherever I am. He makes me want to work harder every day. I’m at a stage in my life where I don’t have to choose between career & family. I’m doing both. I’m an actor but through all the ups & downs I’ve been a sister, a wife, a mom & none of these roles have deterred me. In fact, it’s put me on the right path. My dreams have gotten bigger–there’s much more to achieve. As an actor, and as a woman.”
