Kareena Not Converted To Islam, says Saif Ali Khan
Kareena Kapoor, after tying the knot with Saif Ali Khan in October 2012, has regularly become the target of certain religious groups, who have used her as the poster girl for ‘Love Jihad’ (a controversial term given by religious outfits to a Muslim man marrying a Hindu woman), reported the Indian media.
Outraged by the concept, Saif feels that his actor-wife is being wrongly targeted by these groups.
“People say she has converted [to Islam]. No, she hasn’t,” he explains.
The 44-year-old Bollywood star believes that the talks of ‘Love Jihad’ are actually “regrettable”. “These talks — emotionally, intellectually and socially — do not feature in our lives anywhere. The character, wisdom and intellect of such sources should be considered before taking them seriously,” says Saif.
He also feels that Kareena should be known for her work more than anything else. “The country should be proud of Kareena’s contribution to cinema and society.
