"you think of so many important ladies, my favourite actresses"
Kareena Kapoor had an interesting reaction when Saif Ali Khan was asked to name his favourite actresses.
The Bollywood couple attended the Red Sea Film Festival in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.
The duo was seen joining the Women in Cinema event at the Film Festival.
Before entering the venue, Saif was asked about the contributions of women in cinema.
While speaking about the matter, Saif named a few actresses but he forgot to mention his wife’s name, prompting a reaction from Kareena.
He said: “Cinema is empty without women for a start.
“When you think of cinema you think of so many important ladies, my favourite actresses from all the way back from Marlene Dietrich to Audrey Hepburn to Charlize Theron.”
Kareena Kapoor was quick to interrupt, saying “to your wife!”
Saif then added: “And to my beautiful wife.”
Kareena laughed at her husband’s addition.

Saif went on to say: “My mum (Sharmila Tagore), her first movie (Apur Sansar) was with Satyajit Ray when she was 16.
“So I think feminine sensitivity and aggression, that whole aspect of nature is what women in cinema mean to me.”
Sharing her views, Kareena said:
“So many different women from across the world are coming to be a part of this festival to celebrate the fact that women are leading the pack whether it is in India or anywhere.
“All actors are taking up such brave roles so I’m happy there is a special day today.”
