Mumbai: B’day greetings for Kareena Kapoor wouldn’t have stopped pouring as she turned 30 this year. However, this could have turned as the biggest b’day spoiler for Bebo. Punishing work schedule took a toll on b’day girl Kareena to a point that she almost considered missing her flight to Paris via London jeopardizing her birthday celebration plans today with beau Saif Ali Khan.

But, thankfully the actress didn’t miss the flight and is now on her way to the world’s most romantic place where the couple would have a special dinner at Johnny Depp`s Ritz Hotel in Paris.

While Saif had given his gal a huge diamond ring a couple of years back on her birthday, buzz has it that another very expensive gift is expected for Bebo this time round.

Speaking to a news daily last night before her departure, Kareena said, “It`s been a very hectic schedule. I left Latvia to shoot for my endorsements in Mumbai. They had wanted me to shoot in Thailand but I couldn`t because of lack of time. So they flew down an entire team of 40 Malaysian and Thai make-up artistes to Mumbai for the shoot”.

She further added, “But since I was shooting continuously in water for my shampoo and soap ads which included bathing in the tub scene, I developed severe cold, a bad throat and high fever.”

Kareena’s mother Babita had been firing her about working so hard and falling so ill. She was very worried that all the traveling alone to Paris via London would be hard cope on her own.

Bebo said, “Mom thinks I have been pushing myself too hard and neglecting my health but I had no choice but to complete this schedule."

Believe it or not, but Saif`s girlfriend was on injections, medicines and taking lots of rest throughout the day to make sure that she could travel in the night. She said to reporters, "Mom is not very keen that I travel when I am so ill but I am going because Saif has planned a very special birthday night for me and I can`t let him down by not going... so come what may I will go! This is one time I can`t listen to mom."

Way to go girl! Team Spicezee wishes you a very Happy Birthday!
