Kareena Kapoor on Taimur Ali Khan: He makes me want to work harder every day


I remember while shooting in Ladakh & Jaisalmer, we’d go on long bike rides for some alone time. I’m an actor but through all the ups & downs I’ve been a sister, a wife, a mom & none of these roles have deterred me. I felt like my career was over; I was told to ‘re-invent’, become size 0. She held herself with such pride through everything; watching her made me want to act too. “It started out great–I did amazing films. He was so charming; I fell for him hook, line & sinker. I’m doing both. As an actor, and as a woman,” she concludes. He’s always with me wherever I am. Motherhood is the greatest thing that’s happened to me. But for me, he was just Saif–he helped me heal & love myself. We want to live together.’ My mom was cool with it. Advertising

Kareena shares, “When I came back home from boarding school, Karisma had just started acting. In fact, it’s put me on the right path. It’s so easy with him. My dreams have gotten bigger–there’s much more to achieve. Even when we decided to get married, it felt right.”
Kareena Kapoor also talks about motherhood and how it changed her completely. She shares that part of her life and says, “Somehow through my life, I’ve been blessed with people who have supported me thoroughly! We’d enjoy the beauty, have great conversations & just bond! I wore my heart on my sleeve! I’d met him before, but while we were filming Tashan, something changed. “A few years later, I was blessed with our son, Taimur. Everyone goes through a lull in their career. So when my time came, she taught me to wade through this industry as a woman.”
Kareena Kapoor also talks about the various ups and downs that she had to face in her career. I learnt to balance things & not let them get to me.”

She further says, “We’d been dating for awhile, when he said he’s not 25 & can’t keep dropping me home every night. Maybe it was the fact that we’re so different–he’s more private & not ‘Bollywoodised’, but I imbibed that from him. But as an actor, it’s worse–there are so many eyes on you!”

Comment(s) I was in awe of her–I remember her in ‘Dil Toh Pagal Hai’, being so passionate. So he told my mom, ‘I want to spend the rest of my life with her. But then for a year I didn’t work. “I’m at a stage in my life where I don’t have to choose between career & family. He’s 10 years older than me & has 2 kids. So just when I thought I was falling, Saif caught me. He makes me want to work harder every day,” she says. Taimur is a part of me–I can’t go an hour without him.
