As four explosions ripped through the Karol Bagh Market, Kailash Market and Connaught Place in New Delhi on Saturday, killing many and injuring dozens of others, B-Town's favourite couple, Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor who were also in the capital, were unscathed. While Saif has been there for a recce of his untitled home production (Illuminati Films) directed by Imtiaz Ali (shooting starts September 16), Kareena was there for a ribbon-cutting event of a newly launched spa.
When we contacted Saif and Kareena on Saturday night, they were having dinner at the ITC Maurya Sheraton (where they are staying) on Sardar Patel Marg at the Diplomatic Enclave, they were having dinner. A visibly disturbed Saif says, "We are deeply hurt and very worried about what's been happening all around us."
Saif adds that though they are also nervous about stepping out anywhere because of the blasts they were physically unhurt. "No harm has come to us. We are fine. Even my shooting was to start from December 16 at various places and we hope to go on schedule as planned," Saif signs off. Kareena, who was in the capital for a day, left for Ladakh yesterday to shoot for Raj Kumar Hirani's 3 Idiots.
