Not a STAR, but a POLITICIAN: Kareena Kapoor’s ‘once upon a time’ crush
Currently, actress Kareena Kapoor Khan is in the happiest phase of her life, be it her personal life or professional life. She is happily married to actor Saif Ali Khan and the couple is blessed with a Baby boy Taimur Ali Khan. Also, on the professional front the actress is all set to make a comeback on the big screen with her upcoming film ‘Veere Di Wedding’.
When we have a look at Kareena Kapoor’s personal life, it’s no secret that before Saif the actress was earlier in a relationship for almost three years with actor and her co-star Shahid Kapoor. The couple got separated in 2007. And before there were even reports of alleged love affair with actor Hrithik Roshan, with whom Kareena was supposed to make her acting debut in ‘Kaho Naa… Pyaar Hai’ before she walked out and Ameesha Patel was roped in for the film.

However, recently our eyes caught upon an old interview of Kareena Kapoor when she had appeared as the celebrity guest on host Simi Garewal’s talk show ‘Rendezvous with Simi Garewal’ in year 2002. While having a conversation with the host she admitted that she is single and her life at that point of time was no outside films. Kareena said that she’ll wait for the day to fall in love and meet someone who’s on the same thinking level as her, someone who’s as strong as she is. It was during this when Simi Garewal asked her that if she could pick anyone in the world for a date (at that time) who would she choose. And surprisingly it wasn’t any Bollywood star but an Indian politician. Let’s break this to you, it was none other than Rahul Gandhi. Yes! You read that right.
After being asked by the host, Kareena said on the show, “Shall I say this, I don’t know if I should because I don’t mind getting to know him, it’s controversial… Rahul Gandhi. I’d like to know him, there’s something I’ve been seeing his pictures in the India Today and just kind of this flipping through and saying that what would it be like to have a conversation with him.”
“And I come from a family with the lineage of films and he comes from a family with lineage of politics. So, maybe we’d make an interesting conversation,” added the actress.
Well, what Simi said upon hearing this revelation, we would like to say the same which is ‘Really! that’s very interesting’.
Now, we are wondering what would have been the first reaction of her husband Saif Ali Khan after watching this interview and getting to know about this revelation.
