Kareena made these latest comments regarding her husband in light of recent speculation suggesting that the Padma Shri awrd- India’s 4th highest civilian award- would be taken back from the Bollywood hunk. The actress stated that Said would be absolutely fine with handing the award back and that she was confident he wouldn’t lose sleep over it.
According to some reports, the government was investigating a demand made to take back the award from Saif after he was booked in a Mumbai court over a scuffle. The actor had broken the nose of a South African based businessman and had also indulged in a verbal spat with his father-in-law.
However, Kapoor was of the view that the award was given to Saif and only bestowed on him.
“The fact is that it is a national honour and they have obviously researched pretty well to have given him this award,” she said. Commenting on the scuffle that happened at the Wasabi restaurant of Taj Hotel in Colaba, she said, “If they want to discuss it, what had happened at Wasabi and how it should affect the Padma Shri, as far as I know, I haven’t discussed it with him yet but I am quite sure he is pretty relaxed and okay to give it back.”
