Unbelievable! Kareena Kapoor rejected Saif Ali Khan twice
Kareena Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan are one of the most stylish couples of Bollywood. They will be soon celebrating their fourth wedding anniversary in October. But it wasn’t easy for Saif to convince Kareena to marry him, as the actress rejected his proposal twice before finally accepting it.
Kareena recently got candid on the talk show ‘Vogue BFFs’ where she revealed that Saif proposed to her twice but she turned him down the first time. She rejected him because she wanted to focus on her career. The time span between the two proposals was two days.
"He proposed to me a couple of times in Paris. Even his father had proposed to his mother in Paris when she was shooting for ‘An Evening In Paris’. We were at the Ritz Hotel at the bar, I think I said no…and then there was one more time, in the same trip…and when we were at the Notre Dame Church, I was just like let’s not talk about it. Because I was into my career and I was like, ‘let me think about it’, but two days later I was like ‘Yeah’,” the ‘Ki & Ka’ actress said.
But Saif didn’t go down on his knees to propose. "No, that's just the image that he has, but he's far from that. I think he's charming, but he's not going down on his knees,'' Kareena said on the show.
Saif and Kareena had worked opposite each other in ‘LoC Kargil’ and were part of ‘Omkara’, but sparks flew between them on the sets of their film ‘Tashan’. Rumours of their affair were afloat but the couple denied it then.
It was in 2007 at a fashion show when Saif and Kareena made their first public appearance together and officially confirmed their relationship. The couple lived in together for three years before getting married in a private ceremony on October 16, 2012.
The couple is expecting their first child together in December.
