As Saif Ali Khan turned 49 on August 16, we bring you a recap of the actor's love story with his wife-actress Kareena Kapoor Khan!
After 13 years of being married to first love Amrita Singh, and then dating Rosa Catalano for three years post his divorce, Saif and Kareena began seeing each other in 2007.
Before falling for Chhote Nawab, Bebo was in a steady relationship with Shahid Kapoor, from 2004 to 2007. It was during the filming of 'Jab We Met' that they parted ways. Ironically, the Imtiaz Ali film had them playing lovers, and went on to become a huge hit.
Stories of the Saif-Kareena linkup began while the two were shooting for Yashraj Films' 'Tashan' in Ladakh and Rajasthan. They worked together in 'Omkara' as well, but sparks flew on the sets of 'Tashan They were spotted outside a club in Bandra together back in 2007-2008 which sparked off rumours of an affair.
Although Saif Ali Khan received his share of criticism for leaving his kids (Sara Ali Khan, Ibrahim Ali Khan) and family, he maintained that he is genuinely in love with Kareena Kapoor.
On the other hand, Kareena Kapoor, who has had been quizzed in the media more than once about her relationship with Saif, always reiterated that destiny brought them together, and that, for her, Saif is the best.
Ever since they began dating, Saif and Kareena have made no pretensions about their relationship. The couple had walked hand-in-hand at the premiere of Ranbir Kapoor's debut film 'Saawariya'.
Kareena Kapoor supported Saif Ali Khan wholeheartedly during the controversy at Taj Hotel, when a businessman alleged that the Nawab had punched him.
Though Saifeena became one of the most loved couples in B-town, they could never translate the same into on-screen success. The pair has acted in films like 'Tashan', 'Kurbaan' and 'Agent Vinod', all of which tanked at the box office.
Saif professed his undying love for Bebo by tattooing 'Kareena' on his arm back in 2008.
After innumerable media speculations over the D-day, Saif's mother Sharmila Tagore revealed in July in 2012, that the much in love couple would get married in October. The couple tied the knot on October 16, 2012.
Saif and Kareena tied the knot in 2012, but unlike other Bollywood marriages, theirs was a private and secret affair attended by only close family and friends. Saif and Kareena have bonded really well with each other's families and have been each other's pillars of support during testing times.
The couple is often seen partying holidaying and together and give serious relationships goals to their fans. Kareena Kapoor has broken the stereotype of actresses not working post marriage. Kareena, in fact, worked in several films after her marriage, some of which went on to become blockbusters. Saif is a supporting partner and unlike most of the other celebs, who want to confine their spouses to the homes.
Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor's first child Taimur Ali Khan was born in December 2016. Kareena has bonded well with Saif's kids with Amrita - Sara Ali Khan and Ibrahim Khan.
