Mumbai: All is not well in Saifeena land it seems. The four-year-old relationship of Kareena Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan is going through a rough patch.
Speaking to a daily, a source close to the couple said, "They are having some issues. They have been arguing and fighting a lot, more than normal couples do. And it isn`t healthy”.
Friends say that the strains appreared primarily because the couple aren’t able to spend enough quality time with each other. Kareena has always been the busier one and Saif has accompanied her many times on outdoor shoots. But this year, owing Saif’s busy schedule, the two haven’t been able to spend much time together.
Another source added, "The other matter is delicate. It`s about the money being spent by the actress. While Saif doesn`t mind splurging on his girl, he doesn`t quite feel the same way about shelling out for her family`s holidays etc. Especially now when he has been feeling the financial pressure with his second production Agent Vinod getting delayed. He was to shoot in seven countries before. But that changed and the budget was scaled down majorly. Before he left for his London outdoor, the couple had a huge fight about finances."
Apparently , Saif has shown displeasure about the fact that Bebo was not able to spend enough time with him. A friend said, “She hasn`t made time for their annual mid-year holidays as she`s been shooting round the clock for Karan Johar, Shah Rukh Khan, Aamir Khan and Salman Khan`s home productions or her endorsements and attending promotional events. While the mid-yearly holiday in July appears impossible, even a Christmas holiday for Kareena looks difficult now as she starts promotions for Aamir`s film then."
A production assistant from the sets of Bodyguard, which stars Kareena, informs, "One day Kareena broke down while talking to him on the phone. She was emotional, and crying."
Rumours about Saif bonding with Deepika have also not gone down well with girlfriend, Bebo. The two are starring in two films together- ‘Aarakshan’ and ‘Cocktail’.
Meanwhile, Kareena has found a confidante in Aamir Khan, her co-star in the untitled Reema Kagti film for which they have been shooting in Pondicherry for almost a month.
Bebo has been advised by friends to take out time for Saif. Following their advice, the actress had recently flown to London to meet Saif who was there shooting for ‘Cocktail’.
"It wasn`t just for Madame Tussauds as projected. It was a work-cum-pleasure trip — taken to appease Saif in the wake of their fights and spend some quality time with him. Everyone close to the pair are hoping that they will sail through this rough patch and stay happily ever after”, added the source.
Lets hope the two are able to sort out their differences as their fans would not want them to part ways.
