Sharmila Tagore confirms Saif-Kareena wedding date


Saif Ali Khan,Kareena-Kapoor

MUMBAI: In the first official confirmation from the family, the wedding date is confirmed by Saif ‘s mother Sharmila Tagore. The other details about the wedding of the year have come to light through reliable sources close to both families. Apparently Kareena will continue with her career, just as her gorgeous mother-in-law.

Says a source, “Sharmilaji’s best innings as an actress started after marriage. In fact Saif was a baby on the sets when Sharmilaji was doing one of her most celebrated film ‘Aradhana’. Kareena intends to  follow her mom-in-law’s career model. She will do two films a year after marriage. After she completes Madhur Bhandarkar’s ‘Heroine’ she goes straight into Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Ram Leela’.”

In fact Kareena has made it clear to the worried Bhansali there will be  no wedding break. It’s going to be a very quiet wedding for the long-standing Kareena Kapoor-Saif Ali Khan pair. And as confirmed by Saif’s mother, the date is October 16. However according to sources the wedding, to be held at the Pataudis’ ancestral home on Pataudi, would be a very quiet affair in the presence of  only immediate family members from both sides.

Says the source, “Since it’s  still so soon after the family patriarch Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi passed away the entire family agreed to a low-key wedding. Kareena  and her folks readily agreed to a closed family-only wedding. However a large reception after the wedding was seen to be imperative, considering both Saif and Kareena have such a vast network of friends in the film industry.”

The venue for the wedding reception is still undecided, though the chances are that the couple would fly down the same day (16 October) after the wedding at Pataudi to Mumbai for the reception. Says the source, “The details are now being worked out. But the honeymoon won’t occur immediately.  She has no intentions of letting her career slacken after marriage.”

When contacted Saif’s mother Sharmila Tagore confirmed 16 October to be the wedding date. “Yes, that’s the date. Then a reception, though not a very big one.”
