Saif Ali Khan, who recently underwent an emergency appendectomy in Kuala Lumpur, says it is high time he tied the knot with his long-standing girlfriend Rosa.
"I think we should get married. My mom thinks we should," Saif said in an interview.
Currently he is in Los Angeles as part of a concert but he is not allowed to perform and is feeling guilty about it.
"At the end of every show I don't even break into a sweat. That's how little I am doing for the tour. And I ask myself, what the hell am I doing?"
Saif is excited about his face appearing on an Australian stamp. "I'm excited about it. I've ordered 50 of those stamps. I'll probably frame one in my study."
Is Rosa with you in LA?
She's joined me from England. I think we should get married. My mom thinks we should.
Saif, how are you coping with the concerts after your operation?
I am doing okay. I have been jetlagged. I haven't performed much, so it's a bit depressing. They are paying me well, so here I am on stage. I didn't have to come for the concerts. But I did because I wanted to.
In fact, Sushmita (Sen) mentioned it on stage. She said something very cool. She said the show would have been finished if I hadn't come along. I am not dancing... Maybe I'll play the guitar in my next concert. There's some hectic travelling. But I am relaxed.
You are feeling guilty?
Yeah... At the end of every show I don't even break into a sweat. That's how little I am doing for the tour. And I ask myself, what the hell am I doing? I had seen how hard Shah Rukh Khan worked during our Temptations tour. I know it isn't my fault if I had surgery.
But they really love me out here. When I see the audiences' response I am like... 'Wow!' They probably feel sympathetic towards me for limping to LA after surgery.
That surgery was sudden!
You can say that again! It wasn't laser surgery. The surgeon used a knife on my stomach. But it was really good surgery. I can't think of a better place than Malaysia to fall ill. The hospital was unbelievably clean, like a five-star hotel. Also not expensive... not that it mattered at a time like that. But when I saw the hospital bills, I didn't baulk.
