My father-in-law was proud of me and Saif: Kareena

Mumbai: Actress Kareena Kapoor Khan, who terms her father-in-law Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi as a `man of few words`, said he was proud of her and her husband and actor Saif Ali Khan.

Saif, son of the late cricketer and actress Sharmila Tagore, is planning to make a film on Pataudi`s life.

"It`s really nice that Saif is thinking of it (making the film). I had spent three years with him (Pataudi) and he was a man of few words. He was a very quite person," Kareena told in an interview here.

"He was very warm and would not express his affection towards me. But I remember, once we all were in Pataudi (town) and he put his hand on my shoulder. It was a gesture of warmth and strength. It is something which will always remain with me," she said.

The 33-year old actress said her father-in-law was proud of the work of his children and her as well.
"He was always proud of Saif and me. I don`t think he had seen too many of my films but he had seen `Omkara` and liked me in it," she said.

The former Indian cricket captain, who was the titular Nawab of Pataudi from 1952 until 1971, died in 2011 of a lung ailment in Delhi.

The actress says he was a great sporting icon and legend. "I remember reading lovely articles written by the Indian and international media about him after he passed away. I am happy people paid respect towards him," she said.

Meanwhile, on the rumours of Saif`s daughter Sara, from his former wife Amrita Singh, joining films, Kareena said that there are no Bollywood plans for Sara now as she is still studying in New York.

The `Jab We Met` actress, will be next seen in Rohit Shetty`s `Singham Returns` with co-star Ajay Devgn.
