Kareena Kapoor is all set to marry Saif Ali Khan on October 16, 2012. The actress is keen to have a Hindu wedding and reportedly Kareena will not convert to Islam after marrying Saif Ali Khan.
Saif Ali Khan said in an interview recently, "I would never want her (Kareena) to change her religion. That is the trouble with religion really... it expects conversion. I don't buy or believe that. I think it's good that the government, too, has - unless I'm misinformed about the law amended to include it in the Special Marriage Act. If and when we do get married, no one has to change his or her religion."
The ever lively Kareena Kapoor has always said that she respects all religions and she has been visiting Church since her childhood as her mother Babita was catholic.
In the earlier inter caste marriages of the Pataudi family, women converted to Islam for the nikaah. Even Saif Ali Khan's parents Sharmila and late cricketer Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi had a traditional nikaah ceremony. After which Sharmila Tagore, who was a Bengali, converted to Islam and changed her name to Ayesha Begum. But Saif does not want Kareena to change her religion.
Well, it's a true case of Love Beyond Religion!!
