Actor Saif Ali Khan said he is in no hurry to have children with actress and wife Kareena Kapoor Khan. “I am in no rush to become [a] father. whenever she is ready [for it, it will happen],” Khan said.
Kapoor Khan had recently said in an interview that she wants to become a mother, but not in the next two to three years.
Khan has two children — Sara and Ebrahim — with his former wife actress Amrita Singh. Kapoor Khan, who married the actor in October 2012, is doing well at the box office with the success of her latest release Bajrangi Bhaijaan.
The Phantom actor said Kapoor Khan has managed to strike a fine balance between 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.
Khan said he likes to watch his wife in romantic roles such as the one she played in 2007 release Jab We Met. The actor also said he gets along well with his wife’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[ship] with Karishma as well,” he said.
The 45-year-old actor also revealed that his mother-in-law likes his romantic comedies such as Love Aaj Kal and Cocktail.
Khan said both his children are free to pursue their Bollywood dreams.
“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 Ebrahim. I want them to have a degree [first] and after that they can do whatever they want,” he said.
