Actor Kareena Kapoor Khan opened up about her struggling days and how her husband and actor Saif Ali Khan's support changed her outlook towards life when she was undergoing a rough patch. "It started out great. I did amazing films. But then for a year, I didn't work. I felt like my career was over. I was told to 'reinvent' and become size zero. Everyone goes through a lull in their career. But as an actor, it's worse because there are so many eyes on you!” said the Ki & Ka star, reported Business Standard

"Somehow through my life, I've been blessed with people who have supported me thoroughly. Just when I thought I was falling, Saif caught me. I'd met him before, but it all started when we were filming Tashan.” Sharing how their love story began, Kareena added, “I wore my heart on my sleeve! He was so charming; I fell for him hook, line and sinker. I remember while shooting in Ladakh and Jaisalmer, we would go on long bike rides for some alone time. We would enjoy the beauty, have great conversations and just bond."

The Veere Di Wedding actor tied the knot with Saif in 2012, who was previously married to actor Amrita Singh. The former couple has two children together – daughter Sara Ali Khan and son Ibrahim Ali Khan.

"He's 10 years older than me and has two kids. But for me, he was just Saif who helped me heal and love myself. Maybe it was the fact that we're so different; he's more private and not 'Bollywoodised'. I imbibed that from him. I learnt to balance things and not let them get to me," she said.

The couple was blessed with a son, Taimur, in 2016. "Taimur is a part of me. I can't go an hour without him. He's always with me wherever I am. He makes me want to work harder every day," she stated. Kareena is gearing up for the release of Good News and will also be seen in the multi-starrer Takht.
