In the first official confirmation from the family, Saif Ali Khan‘s mother, Sharmila Tagore has confirmed her son’s marriage to actor Kareena Kapoor on October 16.
“Yes, that’s the date we have decided upon. There will be a reception, too, but not a very big one,” reports MidDay. The wedding ceremony, said close sources, will be a quiet affair, too.
Kareena had hinted that she would become the ‘Begum of Pataudi’ by the end of this year, while promoting ‘Agent Vinod’. The wedding, which will be held at the Pataudis’ ancestral home, will only be attended by immediate family members of the couple.
Not just media, gossip mongers and the film fraternity even their friends wanted to know when the couple is getting hitched.
The couple, who were rumoured to be planning an early 2012 wedding after the release of their film ‘Agent Vinod’, is now set an October 16 date for their big day.
Earlier their wedding was postponed due to the demise of Saif’s father and former cricketer Mansoor Ali Khan. After that the two had a chock-a-block work schedule and were unable to squeeze in a wedding date.
Kareena will complete Madhur Bhandarkar‘s movie ‘Heroine’ by July. After marriage, she will do two films a year. Right after she completes Madhur Bhandarkar’s ‘Heroine’, she’ll begin shooting for Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Ram Leela’.
