We are in no hurry to get married: Saif-Kareena

Kareena Kapoor and R: Saif Ali Khan

The Bollywood stars, who are constantly surrounded by wedding rumours since they started dating two-years ago, said that they are happy to be in love and would like to focus on their career and relationship at this point of time.

"We have not really addressed that issue (marriage). We do talk about it but right now I think Saif wants to set up his production and I want to do some more great roles," Kareena said, while speaking at the HT Leadership Summit.

Khan, who debuted as a producer recently with 'Love Aaj Kal' backed his lady love on the topic of marriage, saying, "There is no rush to get married. In today's time it is more important to stay connected and keep the relationship working. I don't know how open minded we are but let us face it your career does get impacted after marriage.

"And I don't think it is a constructive to take a lady who is at the top of her profession working as an actress and turn her into a housewife," the 39-year-old actor said.

When asked about maintaining silence about their relationship for a long time, Khan said they did not want to flaunt their love because the 27-year-old actress had recently gone through a break-up with Shahid Kapoor.

"She had just come out of a relationship and I think it was not fair enough to flaunt it. However, we both agree that to deny a relationship is not a good way," Khan said. P

No underwear ads for Saif, no non-veg brands for Kareena

Kareena Kapoor is clear she will never endorse food chains like McDonald's or Burger King, known for their beef burgers and the like, while co-actor and boyfriend Saif Ali Khan says he can't think of doing an underwear ad.

"I will not endorse non-vegetarian products like McDonald's or Burger King. I won't endorse alcohol or tobacco. This is the policy I always follow because if I don't relate to such things, I should not advocate them either," Kareena said at the HT Leadership Summit here Saturday.
"Endorsing a brand is not only fun but it does add to the bank balance. Apart from that endorsing a good brand helps you in connecting with your fans. Given this, I have to be very choosy about my endorsements because they also help a lot in branding," she added.
Kareena is the face of many leading brands like Kurkure Desi Beats and Vivel soap among others.
Saif, who promotes several brands including Head and Shoulders and Asian Paints, says it is important for him to connect with the brand he endorses.
"For me, brand name is very important. I feel I should represent a brand that I can connect with. This also helps me to reach out to my fans because they can associate with me through that brand. I won't endorse something I don't connect with... like underwear ads. I can do a baniyan (vest) ad, but no chaddis for me.
"It's not the finances always. When a brand approaches us, they do a lot of research before they come to sign us. And when they come to sign, that means you represent something. It also helps visibility," he added.
