Bebo calls off October wedding reports Mumbai Mirror
Kareena Kapoor has never acknowledged the October wedding, but Saif Ali Khan's family have gone out in print suggesting the couple will get married in October. But recent reports from Mumbai Mirror suggest otherwise.
I wonder what is going through Kareena's mind. First, she walks out of plum projects. Now, we hear there is no October wedding. May be she wants to do Sanjay Leela Bhansali's 'Ram-Leela' after all?
Here are the excerpts from the Mirror article.
Though the mother chose to stay mum, a family friend revealed: "The wedding was indeed scheduled for October 16. The arrangements had begun. In fact, when Sharmilaji and Bebo were in London last month along with the rest of the family, they shopped for the wedding as well. The venue and the guestlist were also finalised. But Bebo has second thoughts now," said the friend.
And though Saif's mother rose to stardom after her marriage, the same reasoning has failed to work with Bebo. "But Sharmilaji is a very non-interfering mom and, by extension, a hands-off mom-in-law. Reports that she has served Saif and Kareena an 'ultimatum' to marry are completely false. She is the last person to persuade her children into taking any decision, especially one as serious as marriage. She has left the final decision to Saif and Kareena," said the friend.
While Kareena's cold feet may have been the primary reason behind the wedding being called off, a section of the industry believes that the dispute over the Pataudi family property in Bhopal may also have something to do with it. Saif's sister Saba is the current custodian of the Auqaf-e-Shahi (the royal wakf properties) but the impending marriage of the crowned Nawab of Pataudi, Saif to a Hindu, Kareena, had family members worried about the future. His cousin Faiz Bing Jung had in fact stated, "The custodian of Auqaf-e-Shahi has to be a Muslim. We are apprehensive about the future."
Sharmila however, dismissed the reports calling them a 'complete lie'. "They are going to get married very soon. But with the current date postponed it's hard to say when," the concerned friend concluded.
