Bollywood actress Kareena Kapoor Khan, who has completed two decades in the film industry, has never shied away from answering questions that others might run away from. Be it rumours of fights with her co-stars or addressing link-up reports, the actress doesn't mince words when posed with tough questions concerning gossip mills of the film industry.
But while Kareena has worked with many leading actors, it was her screen presence with Hrithik Roshan that often became the talk of the town. In fact, Kareena was also set to make her acting debut opposite Hrithik in Kaho Naa... Pyaar Hai but things didn't work out as planned. The two actors have worked together in many films including Yaadein, Main Prem Ki Diwani Hoon, Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham, and Mujhse Dosti Karoge.
While the duo's chemistry continues to be loved, years ago, there were rumours that the two were dating. Addressing the alleged link-up, Kareena, in an old interview, had said that she feared the affair rumours might impact the actor's marriage with Sussanne Khan. The couple, however, is now separated.
Kareena was quoted saying, "I was more bothered that his marriage would be affected. For me, it was a professional hazard. First it was Hrithik. Tomorrow it could be someone else. As long as I know the truth, I'm fine."
Further, the actress also revealed why the rumours irked her so much and said that she was shocked to see the "insinuation that I was willing to give up my career to run after him."
Cut to today, Kareena is happily married to Saif Ali Khan. The power couple of Bollywood tied the knot in 2012. The duo is now parents to the internet's favourite star kid, Taimur Ali Khan. As for Hrithik, the actor continues to co-parent his sons Hridhaan and Hrehaan with ex-wife, Sussanne Khan.
