Saif Ali Khan hasn’t spoken about his impending wedding to Kareena Kapoor, till now. Contrary to stories doing the rounds that the wedding – to be held in his ancestral Pataudi Palace – has been postponed thanks to delays with Agent Vinod and his father Mansur Ali Khan’s recent death, Saif confirms for the first time that they will marry early next year.
Kareena had always maintained that she and Saif would tie the knot in 2012 but there was some confusion if it would be early 2012 or end of the year. Saif’s mother Sharmila Tagore has also declared that her son is planning to marry Kareena “very soon.” The plan was to get married after the release of Saif’s home production Agent Vinod, which was to release on December 9 but the film got delayed, which sparked speculation that the wedding would be postponed.
Saif confirms, “Kareena and I will definitely get married by early next year. We plan to get married in February 2012 after Agent Vinod releases, but if the film’s release gets delayed we will still get married by March. We won’t postpone the marriage beyond that anymore.” He adds, “Kareena is a wonderful girl and we are extremely compatible. My family and she have always got along well. We share the same values in life, love each other completely and I want to spend more time with her. I am looking forward to the marriage now.” The wedding at Pataudi Palace will be a traditional and grand one, attended by the couple’s family and friends.
