"Listen, tread carefully. They’re dangerous girls"
Kareena Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan are one of Bollywood’s power couples but Akshay Kumar actually advised the actor against pursuing a relationship with her.
Kareena revealed that Akshay gave the warning when he noticed that she and Saif were connecting on the sets of their 2008 film Tashan.
Speaking to Akshay’s wife Twinkle Khanna, Kareena explained that she and Saif developed a “karmic connection” on the sets.
She added: “Saif and I were always supposed to do a couple of films together, which we never ended up doing. I always said no to them.”
But when they started to grow close, Akshay took Saif to one side and advised him not to pursue a relationship with Kareena.
On Akshay’s reaction, Kareena recalled:
“Saif and Akshay were talking, and Akshay got the vibe that Saif and me were connecting.
“Akshay took Saif in the corner, and he was like, ‘Listen, tread carefully. They’re dangerous girls and this is a dangerous family, be careful’.
“He was like, ‘Don’t mess with her’, was his vibe, like, ‘You’re barking up the wrong tree’. Saif was like, ‘No, no, I know, I’ll figure her out’.”
Kareena and Saif ended up getting married in 2012 and have two sons together.
Kareena previously revealed that she was at a low point in her career when she met Saif on the sets of Tashan.
She had said: “So just when I thought I was falling, Saif caught me.
“I’d met him before, but while we were filming Tashan, something changed. I wore my heart on my sleeve!”
“He was so charming; I fell for him hook, line and sinker.
“I remember while shooting in Ladakh and Jaisalmer, we’d go on long bike rides for some alone time.
“We’d enjoy the beauty, have great conversations and just bond!”
Following Tashan, Kareena Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan have worked together on a number of films, including Kurbaan and Agent Vinod.
On the work front, Kareena was last seen in Angrezi Medium, which marked the late Irrfan Khan’s final theatrical release.
She will next be seen alongside Aamir Khan in Laal Singh Chaddha, which is the official Hindi remake of the Hollywood cult classic Forrest Gump.
The film has been delayed several times due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
It is now slated to release on April 14, 2022.
