Kareena Kapoor Khan’s shocking reaction on Saif Ali Khan being 10 years elder to her
Kareena Kapoor Khan has always been someone who hasn’t shied away from talking her heart out. The actress spoke up recently to the popular ‘Humans Of Bombay’ and gave out some shocking revelations about her marriage to Saif Ali Khan, motherhood and, of course, Taimur. Here’s what she had to say:
When I came back home from boarding school, Karisma had just started acting. I was in awe of her – I remember her in ‘Dil Toh Pagal Hai’, being so passionate. She held herself with such pride through everything; watching her made me want to act too. So when my time came, she taught me to wade through this industry as a woman.
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. 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. 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.
We’d been dating for a while, when he said he’s not 25 and can’t keep dropping me home every night. So he told my mom, ‘I want to spend the rest of my life with her. We want to live together.’ My mom was cool with it. It’s so easy with him. Even when we decided to get married, it felt right.
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.
I’m at a stage in my life where I don’t have to choose between career and family. I’m doing both. I’m an actor but through all the ups and downs I’ve been a sister, a wife, a mom and none of these roles have deterred me. In fact, it’s put me on the right path. My dreams have gotten bigger – there’s much more to achieve. As an actor, and as a woman.
