Kareena Kapoor Khan is happily married to Saif Ali Khan for over seven years now. The duo, who are proud parents to paparazzi's favourite kid, Taimur Ali Khan, have emerged as one of the most loved couples of Bollywood.

But you will be shocked to know that Bebo was warned against marrying Saif Ali Khan at the peak of her career, as he was a divorcee with two children. In a throwback video from Koffee With Karan which has recently gone viral on social media, Kareena is seen speaking about people pointing out Saif's flaws. "I'm just glad that people are doing things now and talking more about their love. When I wanted to marry Saif, everyone was like, 'He has two children, he has been divorced. Are you sure you want to do this?' They were like, 'Your career will be over.' And I was like, 'Such a big crime to be in love? Such a big crime to get married? Let's do it, let's see what happens,'" she said.
