The diva of Bollywood, Kareena Kapoor turns 39 today. Earlier today, we took a look at The Love of story of royals, how Kareena married Saif Ali Khan and today, we bring to you Kareena Kapoor Khan’s best pictures with her family, Taimur, Saif, Karisma and more.
As per reports, Kareena would be celebrating her birthday in the grand ancestral home, Pataudi Palace. Earlier, the actress in an interview, spoke at length about the importance of family in her life.
Kareena talked about how her sister helped her make the right choices in the beginning of her career and how Saif helped her find herself and her confidence when she hit a slump.
“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,” she said.
She further revealed, “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 and sinker.”
“I remember while shooting in Ladakh and Jaisalmer, we’d go on long bike rides for some alone time. We’d enjoy the beauty, have great conversations and just bond. He’s 10 years older than me and has 2 kids. But for me, he was just Saif–he helped me heal and love myself,” said Kareena.
She added, “Maybe it was the fact that we’re so different–he’s more private and not ‘Bollywoodised’, but I imbibed that from him. I learnt to balance things and not let them get to me.”
Bebo also touched upon Taimur and revealed how motherhood changed her life. She said, “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.”
