Kareena Kapoor Khan and Twinkle Khanna have been divulging some interesting anecdotes about themselves to each other. Recently, Bebo shared an exciting piece of advice she received from her Tashan co-star Akshay Kumar when she and Saif Ali Khan had begun dating each other. Bebo and Saif fell head over heels for each other while shooting for Vijay Krishna Aacharya’s directorial debut Tashan. However, 4 years later, the couple got married in a big fat wedding and is currently parenting their two adorable sons – Taimur and Jehangir.
Now, here’s another interesting anecdote revealed by Khanna. During their latest chit-chat for Tweak India, actress-turned-author-turned-host Twinkle asked Bebo to confirm when her father and veteran actor Randhir Kapoor decided to meet her vegetarian boyfriend at a non-veg restaurant. Mrs Funnybones revealed about Kareena, “There’s this apocryphal tale where you wanted to introduce a boyfriend to your dad. And you said, ‘Daddy, this is my new boyfriend, let’s go for dinner’ and he said, ‘Beta, Dum Pukht (a restaurant famous for its meat dishes) chalte hai.’ And then you said, ‘Daddy, he’s vegetarian.’ And he said, ‘Koi baat nahi beta wo driver ke saath khana khayega (No problem, he’ll eat with the driver).”
Replying to the same, Kareena Kapoor Khan revealed that she was embarrassed. She told Twinkle Khanna, “What do I say, you know how they are, what do I say? You know how they are, about their food, about their paya.”
When asked if Kareena Kapoor and her vegetarian boyfriend eventually ended up going to the non-vegetarian restaurant or not, the Good Newz actress replied, “He had to watch and stare.”
In the same video, Kareena Kapoor Khan had also revealed that Akshay Kumar had told Saif Ali Khan, “They’re dangerous girls and this is a dangerous family, dekh ke reh’. Replying to which the Nawab had said, “No, no, I know, I’ll figure her out’.”
Actor Kareena Kapoor revealed that Akshay Kumar tried to warn Saif Ali Khan about her when he realized that they were ‘connecting’ on the sets of their 2008 film Tashan. Kareena and Saif ended up together anyway, and tied the knot in 2012.
In a conversation with writer Twinkle Khanna, posted on the Tweak India YouTube channel, Kareena said that she and Saif developed a ‘karmic connection’ while working together. “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,” she said.
About Akshay Kumar’s reaction to the burgeoning on-set romance, Kareena recalled, “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, tread 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’.”
Kareena and Saif have since worked together on films such as Kurbaan and Agent Vinod. They are parents to two sons–Taimur Ali Khan and Jehangir Ali Khan. She has often spoken about the courtship period, telling Humans of Bombay, “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.”
Kareena was last seen in Angrezi Medium, which was Irrfan Khan’s final theatrical release. She will next be seen in Laal Singh Chaddha, which is the official Hindi remake of Hollywood hit Forrest Gump; Saif Ali Khan’s next is a mythological film ‘Adipurush’ based on the tale of Ramayana scheduled to be out in August and Akshay Kumar’s upcoming release is crime-comedy ‘Bachchan Pandey’ in March..
Kareena Kapoor Khan & Saif Ali Khan are one of the most popular power couples of Bollywood who’ve been married for almost 10 years now. The couple is loved by fans and media alike for their warm and open nature. Even their kids, especially Taimur who never fails to grab attention, are everyone’s favourite on social media. During a recent chat with Twinkle Khanna, Kareena took a trip down memory lane when Saif and Kareena were working on the sets of ‘Tashan’ along with Akshay Kumar. Twinkle told Kareena that even she was on the sets at the time and sensed that something was going on between Bebo and Saif.
She joked how both Saif and Kareena were wearing hideous blonde wigs on the sets and still fell in love with each other. Kareena then shared that even Akshay sensed that the two were connecting and cautioned Saif about dating her. She said “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 tread carefully because they’re dangerous girls and this is a dangerous family. I know them, toh dekh ke reh”.
