Kareena Kapoor shared her first memory of Saif Ali Khan and teared up as she spoke about him. She described her husband as her ‘entire being, her universe’.
Kareena Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan started dating in 2007 and have been together for 16 years now and on the latest episode of Koffee with Karan with guests Sharmila Tagore and Saif Ali Khan, Kareena appeared in a video and spoke about her love for Saif. Kareena also remembered that moment that she fell for Saif.
“What does Saif mean to me? Saif is my entire being, my entire universe, my whole life revolves around my Saif. My eyes well up every time I talk about him because he is my life,” she said as she got emotional. Kareena then recalled her favourite memory of Saif and shared, “My favourite memory will always be the first time I met Saif. Because he was sitting on top of a makeup vanity van in Ladakh without his t-shirt and I was like ‘who is that guy who is sitting on op of a vanity van?’ and they were like ‘it’s Saif and I looked closer and I was like ‘my god, that’s Saif’. That was the moment I lost my mind and that was it.”
Kareena also spoke about Sharmila and said that she called her ‘Amma’ ever since she met Saif. “I have called her Amma from the time I met Saif because I genuinely feel that connection and love for her because she has been so warm, so caring,” she said and added, “I think she looks at me more like a daughter, like Soha and Saba. It’s always been like that. She has always made me feel welcome.”
Sharmila, who spoke about Saif’s first wife Amrita Singh earlier in the episode, was asked if she had any apprehensions when Kareena came into his life. “There was a little gap and Kareena, I had known earlier,” she said. Describing Kareena as “lovely”, Sharmila said, “She was with us when Tiger was ill. She was with us when Tiger passed away.”
She then recalled an incident where Kareena, in the company of Sharmila’s friends from Delhi, stated that she and Saif were living together and this impressed Sharmila. She compared it to the time when she was in a live-in relationship with Tiger Pataudi but dared not state it in front of people. “Even when I think about it, I laugh that how simple and sorted she is. She is so direct,” she said.
