Despite being extremely unwell since returning from her Ra.1 shoot in Goa, Kareena Kapoor, ever the devoted girlfriend, will accompany her beau Saif Ali Khan, to the Padma Shri awards in Delhi.
Says a source close to Kareena, "It was very hot in Goa and the humidity, heat and change of weather when she returned to Mumbai combined with exhaustion took its toll on Bebo. She refused to rest after returning to the city and continued to shoot for her endorsements. The actress finally collapsed on Sunday night and a doctor was called in."
The source adds that Kareena has now been advised complete bed rest for the next couple of days. "She joins the Golmaal 3 cast in Goa on April 9.
And though she hasn't recovered completely, she will be travelling to Delhi today evening with Saif to see him receiving the Padmashri from the President of India.
Initially, Bebo wasn't sure if she would be able to make it as she's still very weak and is down with the flu but when Saif requested her to come along, she couldn't refuse. Saif's parents (Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi and Sharmila Tagore) are out of town and there's no way Kareena would have let Saif attend the awards alone. She's going there to give him moral support."
Bebo will wear...
Kareena Kapoor will be wearing a Manish Malhotra creation tonight. Says Manish, "Since it's a formal occasion, Bebo will be wearing an off-white coloured saree or churidar with dull gold and a touch of red. It's more textured than blingy. Kareena will be wearing her signature style tonight."
