Highlights

  1. "I wore my heart on my sleeve. He was so charming," wrote Kareena
  2. "I learnt to balance things and not let them get to me," she added
  3. "Motherhood is the greatest thing that's happened to me," she said

Some love stories are just meant to be and Kareena Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan's story reminds us of just that. In her piece for Humans Of Bombay, Kareena talked about the two most important facets of her life- love and motherhood. The 38-year-old actress poured her heart out and shared the lesser-known bits of her life in the post. Kareena revealed that she fell head over heels in love with her husband Saif Ali Khan during the filming of the 2008 film Tashan. She also talked about how he stood by her through thick and thin. "Somehow through my life, I've been blessed with people who have supported me thoroughly! 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," wrote Kareena Kapoor.

The Jab We Met actress vividly recalled the times she spent with Saif on the sets of the film and stated that the duo bonded over bike rides, and "great" conversations. "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," wrote Kareena.

Kareena opened up about how Saif's age didn't bother her at all. All that mattered for Kareena was the fact that Saif was a companion who "healed and loved" her and stood by her no matter what. "He's 10 years older than me and has 2 kids but for me, he was just Saif, who helped me heal and love myself. Maybe it was the fact that we're so different-he's more private and not 'Bollywoodised', but I imbibed that from him. I learnt to balance things and not let them get to me," read an excerpt from Kareena Kapoor's post.

In her post, Kareena also touched upon how her life changed post motherhood. Kareena, who is a mother to 2-year-old Taimur, talked about how motherhood was the "greatest" thing that happened to her. "A few years later, I was blessed with our son, Taimur. Motherhood is the greatest thing that's happened to me. Taimur is a part of me-I can't go an hour without him. He's always with me wherever I am. He makes me want to work harder every day," added Kareena Kapoor.

"When I came back home from boarding school, Karisma had just started acting. I was in awe of her-I remember her in 'Dil Toh Pagal Hai', being so passionate. She held herself with such pride through everything; watching her made me want to act too. So when my time came, she taught me to wade through this industry as a woman. It started out great-I did amazing films. But then for a year I didn't work. I felt like my career was over; I was told to 're-invent', become size 0. Everyone goes through a lull in their career. But as an actor, it's worse-there are so many eyes on you! Somehow through my life, I've been blessed with people who have supported me thoroughly! 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 & sinker. I remember while shooting in Ladakh & Jaisalmer, we'd go on long bike rides for some alone time. We'd enjoy the beauty, have great conversations & just bond! He's 10 years older than me & has 2 kids. But for me, he was just Saif-he helped me heal & love myself. Maybe it was the fact that we're so different-he's more private & not 'Bollywoodised', but I imbibed that from him. I learnt to balance things & not let them get to me. We'd been dating for awhile, when he said he's not 25 & can't keep dropping me home every night. So he told my mom, 'I want to spend the rest of my life with her. We want to live together.' My mom was cool with it. It's so easy with him. Even when we decided to get married, it felt right. A few years later, I was blessed with our son, Taimur. Motherhood is the greatest thing that's happened to me. Taimur is a part of me-I can't go an hour without him. He's always with me wherever I am. He makes me want to work harder every day. I'm at a stage in my life where I don't have to choose between career & family. I'm doing both. I'm an actor but through all the ups & downs I've been a sister, a wife, a mom & none of these roles have deterred me. In fact, it's put me on the right path. My dreams have gotten bigger-there's much more to achieve. As an actor, and as a woman."
