Kareena Kapoor has been making news about her impending marriage with boyfriend-actor Saif Ali Khan for a while now. But of late, she has been insisting on not talking about it. Says Kareena, "Of course, marriage will happen. But we are waiting for Agent Vinod to release first. Once it does, we will be able to lock a date."

For some time now, reports have been rife about their wedding being planned in March next year in Pataudi. A few days ago, even Saif mentioned that marriage was on the cards in the first half of 2012.

But Kareena deflects, as she feels that marriage talk might affect the film’s prospects. "Saif has invested a lot of time and effort into making this film, and talking about the marriage takes away from it. Then suddenly, no one will talk about Agent Vinod. Everyone will be like, ‘when are they getting married?’ And both of us don’t want that to happen," says the actor.

At the same time, Kareena also wonders why their wedding is a big deal in the first place. "At the end of the day, marriage is about commitment, and both Saif and I are completely committed to one other. Marriage is for the registers. In an office, it’s just a piece of paper. If you are in love, you will be ready for marriage eventually," she says, before adding, "I want people to watch the film for Saif and me as actors, not as an off-screen couple. That’s the only reason I don’t want to talk about my marriage yet."

Agent Vinod is being directed by Sriram Raghavan and is expected to release in February next year.

Meanwhile, Kareena is busy shooting for Madhur Bhandarkar’s Heroine.

Soon, she will also take a final call on Milan Luthria’s Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai 2. "I will be meeting him in the first week of December. Once I hear the detailed script, I will know if I am doing the film or not," she says.
