Saif Ali Khan recently made an appearance at the latest episode of actor Kareena Kapoor Khan’s radio show, What Women Want. The two talked about various angles to keep the spark in marriage alive. But it seems Saif touched the wrong nerve and ended up upsetting wife Kareena.
While talking about marriage Kareena pointed out that Saif often promises to take her out to dinner but ends up canceling the plan because of his tiredness. To which the Jawaani Jaaneman actor asserted that, “Laziness is a villain generally in life, you know. People say ‘Love is a verb’ and it’s something that has to be shown in practice. Even if you don’t feel like it and you go and pick someone up from the airport once in a while, it just makes things nicer.”
Kareena suddenly exclaimed saying, “You should do that as well!” Saif smiled sheepishly. "Clearly, you’re not keeping the spark alive. It’s been 11 years, you haven’t bothered to (pick her up from the airport)!” she said.
Clearly Saif was in trouble and he tried to reason with the host and his wife as he revealed, he went to receive Kareena at the airport once. “I picked you up once because your mother called and said that there is trouble in London or something,” he said, to which she remarked that it was a decade ago. He begged to differ and said that it had just been three years.
For Saif, a successful marriage is all about maintaining the balance between personal and professional life. “People have compared marriage to a base camp and if you want to climb mountains, you need a good base camp before you climb. But if you spend all your time climbing mountains, there will be no base camp left,” he said.
While their recent conversation revolved around modern marriages and Kareena asked Saif what is the one thing that couples should do to keep the spark in their marriage alive.
“Roleplay,” Saif responds, leaving Kareena speechless.
Kareena manages to recover herself as she says “Actually, we have spoken about every possible topic on the show, so it’s fine,” even as Saif clarifies that he was joking.
