The enchanting love story of Bollywood power couple Kareena Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan traces its roots back to their very first photoshoot in 2005, as revealed by renowned celebrity photographer Dabboo Ratnani. While many believed their romance began during the filming of the movie Tashan, Ratnani shared that the two first met and collaborated during a photoshoot.
During a recent ‘ask me anything’ session on Reddit, Dabboo Ratnani posted an old picture from his photoshoot with Kareena and Saif, sparking curiosity among fans. One user asked about the behind-the-scenes story of the picture and humorously pointed out how the couple eventually got together. In response, Ratnani confirmed, “The 1st time they ever met was at my studio,” indicating that their love story started with that very shoot. He further emphasized, “This is where it all started.”
Before Kareena, Saif was previously married to actress Amrita Singh. Their marriage lasted from January 1991 to 2004, and they have two children together, daughter Sara Ali Khan and son Ibrahim Ali Khan. Following his divorce, Saif crossed paths with Kareena, and their bond grew stronger as they collaborated on various films, including LOC: Kargil (2003), Omkara (2006), Tashan (2008), Kurbaan (2009), and Agent Vinod (2012).
Saif and Kareena tied the knot in 2012 and are proud parents to two sons, Taimur Ali Khan (6 years old) and Jehangir Ali Khan (2 years old). While their children, like them, garner significant media attention, Kareena has expressed her family’s openness and transparency. She believes in giving and receiving respect, stating that by treating the media with respect and maintaining honesty, they have been able to strike a balance between their public and private lives.
Looking ahead, Kareena Kapoor has an exciting lineup of projects, including “The Crew” and an untitled film directed by Hansal Mehta. Saif Ali Khan, on the other hand, will be seen in the highly anticipated film “Adipurush.”
The enduring love story of Kareena Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan, which began with that fateful photoshoot in 2005, continues to captivate fans, making them one of Bollywood’s most beloved couples.
