Actor Saif Ali Khan has said he is in no hurry to have children with his wife Kareena Kapoor Khan, after the actress said recently she would like to become a mother but not for the next two-three years.
“I am in no rush to become father… whenever she is ready (for it),” Khan said in Mumbai last Sunday (13).
The star has two children – Sara and Ibrahim – with his former wife and actress Amrita Singh.
Kareena, who married Khan in October 2012, is enjoying a good run at the box office with the success of her latest release Bajrangi Bhaijaan.
Khan, the lead star of recently released film Phantom, said his wife has managed to strike a fine balance between the blockbusters and small-budget films with meaty roles.
“I think it is important for her to balance with huge blockbuster films where she has nice small roles and with smaller budget films that are about her. She is doing that balance really well.. I am happy to see that,” he said.
He added that he liked to watch her in romantic roles like the one she played in 2007 Jab We Met.
Kareena has a good relationship with Ibrahim and Sara and has often been seen hanging out with them, and Khan said he too shared a good rapport with Kareena’s sister Karisma and mother Babita.
“I don’t think we would have got married if I wouldn’t have had a great relationship with them. I am fond of her (Babita). She is an honest and down to earth person. I share a good relation with Karishma as well,” he said.
The 45-year-old actor also revealed that his mother-in-law likes his romantic comedies like Love Aaj Kal and Cocktail.
Khan said both his children are free to pursue their Bollywood dreams but only after finishing their studies.
“I think they both want to join films. Sara is doing well in studies but she has to complete her education first.. So, Sara first then Ibrahim. I want them to have a degree (first) and after that they can do whatever they want,” he said.
