Saif Ali Khan recited Urdu shayari for a packed audience - mostly women - too bad Bebo wasn't around. According to a source, "At first, Saif was to strum the guitar while he sang and danced. But later, he decided to do something different. Hence, he zeroed upon reciting 16 lines of shayari penned down by a famous Urdu poet." Unfortunately, Kareena wasn't be around to listen.
A source said, "Kareena Kapoor and Saif have just returned from Paris after holidaying together for 10 days." He added Kareena would be shooting for an ad that might go on till late. "They have specially flown over from Bangkok to shoot with her and they have to complete it. Though Bebo would have loved to attend, as she feels strongly about the cause, she didn't," said the source.
A spokesperson from Carving Dreams, one of the organisers, said, "It's true that Saif has considered reciting some couplets from an Urdu poem. The poem is on women and romanticism. We have given him the lines and Saif has liked the thought."
Meanwhile, Katrina Kaif who is also participating in the event, said, "Unlike the high society, where people have the means to move out of domestic violence, women from the lower social strata can't do so. And the only way to bring about a change is by changing one's attitude." Katrina added that it feels great when her name and support is sought for such a wonderful cause.
Apart from Saif and Katrina, Harman Baweja, Minissha Lamba, Mughda Godse will scorch the stage with their moves. The event has been organised by Women Against Violence and Flying Unicorn and Carving Dreams.
