Earlier, Saif's mother Sharmila Tagore had said that her son would tie the knot with Kareena on October 16 at Pataudi Palace in Pataudi village. However, in an exclusive chat with PTI, the 41-year-old actor said that the event was not immediately round the corner as being reported. "I have not fixed a date for the wedding yet. It is going to be a year-end wedding," Saif said.
When asked if the wedding will be solemnised as per Hindu rituals or a traditional nikaah, Saif said, "It is a very private thing...I don't want to talk about it." Discounting the B-town buzz that the ceremony will not take place in India and the venue may be rather shifted to London, Saif said, "The wedding is not happening in London for sure. Rest all details about the wedding I can't talk as it is our private matter. It is personal."
Saifeena, as the celebrity pair is commonly referred to, have been dating for five years and are going strong. Amid numerous speculations and theories on the timing of their marriage, the couple had gone on record saying they would enter the wedlock at the beginning of this year after the release of Agent Vinod but that did not happen. Then came another report that they were getting hitched sometime between March-April, however, the exact date continued to be elusive. Later in June, Saif's mother and yesteryear actress Sharmila Tagore confirmed that the wedding was taking place on October 16. But now Saif has put all the rumours to rest by saying that the wedding will happen at the end of this year.
