Story highlights

In the latest post of 'Humans Of Bombay'- a popular community page on social media- Kareena opened up about her career, how she took inspiration from her sister Karisma, and how she fell for Saif when she was going through a tough phase. 

One of the most celebrated couples of Bollywood, Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor had a whirlwhind romance before tying the knot in 2012. While its a known fact that the two fell in love while working on the sets of 'Tashan', not much is known as to how Kareena fell for someone like Saif- who was strikingly different from her in temparament. 

In the latest post of 'Humans Of Bombay'- a popular community page on social media- Kareena opened up about her career, how she took inspiration from her sister Karisma, and how she fell for Saif when she was going through a tough phase. 

"Just when I thought I was falling, Saif caught me. I’d met him numerous times before, but when we were filming Tashan, something changed. I wore my heart on my sleeve around him. He was so utterly charming; I fell for him hook, line, and sinker. 

I still remember when we were shooting around Ladakh and Jaisalmer, we’d both want some alone time, so we’d just go on these long bike rides. We’d enjoy the beauty around us, have these great conversations and just bond!" Kareena recalled. 

Admitting that she and Saif were very different from each other and that there was a considerable age-gap between the two, the actress said, "He’s 10 years older than me and has two children. But for me, he was just Saif – he helped me heal and made me fall in love with myself. Maybe it was the fact that we’re dramatically different – he’s more private and not very ‘Bollywoodised’, but that’s what I imbibed from him. I learnt to strike a balance and not let things get to me."

Kareena revealed that how Saif proposed the idea of living together before marriage to her mom, Babita and how marriage happened eventually. 

The actress who now has got a son, Taimur, with Saif, said how she thoroughly enjoys motherhood. "Motherhood is one of the greatest things that has happened to me. Taimur is a part of me – I can’t go an hour without him. He’s always with me, whether I’m on set or anywhere else. He makes me want to work harder every single day."
