Getting married into other religions might be a taboo in our society but the world of Bollywood certainly doesn’t know these religious boundaries. For them love is the only religion that exists and which is why we get to see many cross religious marriages in town, which are indeed successful.
And now the latest to be added in this list is Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor’s much awaited wedding. It is notable that Saif’s mom Sharmila Tagore got converted into Islam as per her own choice when she tied the knot with Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi. The yesteryear diva then turned Ayesha Sultana Khan, which was later shortened to Ayesha Khan.
However, she kept on being addressed as Sharmila as it was the name she used onscreen and even in her public life. Now when it was reported that her to be bahu Kareena will be wearing her sharara at her October 2012 wedding, speculations started mounting if Bebo too will convert into Islam.
If you too had been thinking about the same then here we have an answer on the same. Though Kareena refrained from making any comment over the wedding preparations but she made it clear that she won’t drop her surname. She said, “There is no way I am dropping the Kapoor in my name”. Even Saif has confirmed the same saying, “I would never want her (Kareena) to change her religion. That is the trouble with religion really… it expects conversion. I don`t buy or believe that. I think it`s good that the government, too, has – unless I`m misinformed about the law amended to include it in the Special Marriage Act. If and when we do get married, no one has to change his or her religion.”
So it’s pretty clear marriage won’t take anything from Bebo but make her Kareena Kapoor Khan!
