Confirming this, Kareena told Mirror, "Saif's (Ali Khan) birthday is on August 16. I have planned a party for him in London where he has a lot of friends." The actor will turn 44on August 16.

After returning from London, the couple will fly off to Italy in a couple of days. "Just in case Italy doesn't materialise, we plan to go to France," informs Kareena, adding with a smile, "Saif and I love spending quality time with each other. Bahut dinon se hum kahin bahar nahin gaye saath saath."

Post his birthday celebration, Saif along with Kareena and his mother Sharmila Tagore will drive to London for India-England Test series to hand over the Pataudi trophy . The final match (August 15-19) will be held at Manchester's Old Trafford. The trophy is named after the Pataudi cricketing family and is awarded to the winner.

Says Kareena, "My mother-in-law will be giving away the Pataudi trophy, but has asked Saif and me to do the honours with her. For me it's a prestigious thing to even attend the event. She (Sharmila), for us, is still the original begum and always will be. I am very excited about it. Saif wanted to celebrate his birthday with his friends this time. We have more than a month to spend time by ourselves and go somewhere exotic later, as our shootings are over – my next film will start in October, while he is just completing Happy Ending. After Winchester, we go to London to give away the Pataudi Trophy."

Saif says, "My mother has asked me to give the trophy but I think she should. It's up to her."
