Saif did not ask for Padma, Centre can take it back, says Kareena Kapoor

While there’s a huge row over the Centre planning to take away Saif Ali Khan’s Padma honour, his wife Kareena Kapoor has finally reacted on the entire controversy.

Saif Ali Khan had been awarded the Padma Shri in 2010 for his contribution to Indian cinema. But a criminal case against the actor in 2012 for allegedly hitting an NRI at a suburban restaurant called for a huge controversy. Recently, there were reports that the Centre, was contemplating to take back his Padma honour.

Saif was arrested after his midnight brawl at a restaurant and the Centre had decided to strip him off his Padma honour but there has been no confirmations about the same.

When wife Kareena Kapoor was quizzed about the entire scenario, she clearly shot back saying that it was not Saif who demanded the Padma honour. It was ‘conferred’ to him for his contribution to Hindi cinema.

The actress, who is known for her unabashed straight forwardness, also added that the Centre can take the Padma honour back and Saif will be happy to give it back.

There have been no official announcements regarding the Centre’s decision as of now.
