There's fresh development in Saif-Kareena wedding drama. Saif Ali Khan has confirmed that they are getting married in December, and not on October 16, reports Mumbai Mirror.
Saif told the tabloid: "And the wedding is in Maldives...100 people...December not October!"
Saif had earlier told Mid-Day: "I can't confirm the date right now. Probably a couple of months down the line, I would speak to you about it. Right now it's only Cocktail, and I want to keep my professional and personal life separate," he said.
Amidst so much dilly-dallying by Sharmila, Saif, Kareena and Soha, we aren't quite sure if this is the last we are hearing on this. Here's a lowdown on what went before this most recent quote of this actor surfaced.
Did Kareena delay the wedding?
Kareena Kapoor has reportedly decided to delay the wedding to sign on some meaty projects. Mumbai Mirror reported: "According to sources, the actress, whose Heroine is set to release on her birthday, September 21, believes she is at her career-peak. She has signed on a few other big banner projects, one of them with younger Imran Khan and she is not prepared to concede any ground to her rivals who are hot at her heels."
"Especially after Bhansali's biting remark that "no married heroine" can be his Juliet, Kareena and Saif decided, it was better to focus on her career right now. In fact, sources close to the couple say they were concerned that the wedding may alter the quality of projects offered to her. And Saif, being the understanding partner that he is, did not want her to compromise," a source told the tabloid.

In an interview to HT he had said: “I haven’t fixed a date for my wedding! I’m yet to meet Kareena’s parents to sort out the date ... the venue is also not finalised,” says the actor, maintaining the obvious: It’s going to be a year-end wedding.”
The denial had come soon after Sharmila announced the wedding date. We wonder, why Saif and Sharmila didn't discuss in advance about the announcement.CLUELESS SOHA
When asked about her brother's wedding date, this is what Soha had to say: "I am quite confused myself. I know it is happening with the people in question, but they haven't set the date or talked about it," Soha told a daily recently, adding, "I think it is happening imminently."
Interestingly, it was Soha, who had let the cat out of the bag last year. She had said: “They (Saif and Kareena) have been together for quite some time now and their relationship has grown. I can hardly wait for the wedding next year. There will be a number of functions and I am very excited about what to wear.” UNSURE SHARMILA
Confirming that Saif will wed Kareena on October 16, Sharmila Tagore had said: "Yes, that's the date we have decided upon. There will be a reception, too, but not a very big one."
After the reports of Saif denying the October 16 wedding emerged, Sharmila said in an interview to Mid-Day that her busy son will have to take out time from his shooting schedules as the date has been finalised by her once and for all, and there’s no getting away. She said it was a ’warning’ for him.TOP BUZZ ABOUT THE WEDDING
