I will become a father when Kareena is ready: Saif Ali Khan

MUMBAI: Bollywood couple Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan tied the knot three years ago but they are in no hurry to have children, Indian media reported.


Saif and Kareena got married in October, 2012, and since then Saif has been questioned time and again about when he plans on having a family with Kareena.

The Cocktail star, father to two children Sara and Ibrahim from his former wife Amrita Singh, is not hurrying the decision and has left it to Kareena.

Speaking to local media, he said, “I am in no rush to become a father. It will happen whenever she [Kareena] is ready for it.”

Bebo too had recently said that she would like to become a mother in the next few years, but not right away.

She is currently having a good run at the box office with the success of her latest release Bajrangi Bhaijaan.

“I think it is important for her to balance blockbuster films where she has nice small roles with smaller budget films that are about her. She is working that balance really well. I am happy to see that,” said Saif.

The actor also said that he shares a great relationship with mother-in-law Babita.

“I don’t think we would have gotten married if I wouldn’t have had a great relationship with them. I am fond of her [Babita]. She is an honest and down-to-earth person. I share a good relation with Karishma as well,” he said.

He was also asked about his children and whether they would like to pursue a career in Bollywood. Like any concerned father, Saif was clear that the two children must complete their education first.

“I think they both want to join films. Sara is doing well in studies but she has to complete her education first, so, Sara first, then Ibrahim. I want them to have a degree and after that they can do whatever they want,” he said.
