Turning up late at events has become a fad for celebrities. But this time around Bollywood’s ‘it’ couple — Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor — were in a rude shock when the media collectively staged a walk out after waiting for them for over three hours at a launch of a shoe brand.
Aware of the media’s walkout, the couple turned up in a rather sombre mood. Kapoor took the first step to apologise to the few people who had stayed back.
“We apologise to have made you wait for so long. There was a major traffic jam due to last day of the visarjan and hence we got held up,” she said, as Khan added, “We were getting restless in the car but we couldn’t do much.”
While their delay miffed many, the fact is that Kapoor is the first choice among advertising professionals for brand endorsements. According to a report by AdEx India (TAM Media Research), she is the leading female actor endorsing the maximum number of brands.
