Saif-Kareena to wed in Oct, says Sharmila

Bhopal: Though Bollywood couple Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor continue to maintain silence over their much awaited wedding, yesteryear`s actress and Saif`s mother Sharmila Tagore has indicated that it would take place in October.

"The wedding would take place in October," Sharmila told reporters here yesterday. However, she did not disclose the date of the wedding and said only Saif can tell about it.

Earlier, it was reported that Saif and Kareena`s wedding would take place on October 16, but later Saif refused to confirm it. Saif had earlier said that the wedding would take place in November or December.

Sharmila, the wife of late Nawab of Pataudi Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi, arrived in Bhopal to take part in the first meeting of Aukaf-e-Shahi (Wakf properties) of which her eldest daughter, Saba Sultan, is the `Mutawalli` (custodian).

The meeting was held to discuss the issue of caretaker of `Rubaat` (guest house situated in holy city of Medina). The row has been settled with the appointment of Saba Sultan as the `naazir` (caretaker) of the `rubaat`, Sharmila said.

Mansoor Ali Khan was the son Iftikhar Ali Khan (eighth Nawab of Pataudi) and Sajida Sultan, who was the second daughter of the last ruling Nawab of Bhopal. She also informed that Fahim Rizvi is appointed to manage the properties at Mediana Shareef.

Rubaat at Medina is the property of erstwhile royal family of Bhopal which provides accommodation to those visiting the holy city during Haj. The meeting was attended by erstwhile members of royal family of Bhopal including Sharmila, Saleha Sultan and Arjumand Ali Khan.
