Kareena Kapoor Khan and Saif Ali Khan celebrated their little one, Taimur Ali Khan‘s, first birthday in Pataudi last week with their close family members and friends in attendance. Our social media timelines were filled with Taimur and the extended family’s pics, and while everyone looked happy and merry in each other’s company, we were wondering where Saif and Amrita Singh’s kids, Sara Ali Khan and Ibrahim Khan were. In the past, we have seen the brother-sister duo being a part of every celebration. In fact, they are also very fond of Kareena, and have often been spotted spending time with the diva, in the past. However, not seeing them around at Taimur’s birthday bash, set us wondering if everything was alright between Saif-Kareena and Sara-Ibrahim.
Pinkvilla got in touch with a source who was in the know of the situation. The source confirmed that all was well between them but given that Sara was busy with her second shoot schedule, they couldn’t travel to Pataudi to be with the family to ring in the celebrations. The leading entertainment portal quoted the source as saying, “Both Saif and Sara are close to Kareena and are often seen partying with Saif and Kareena at their Bandra home, so when Sara and Ibrahim didn’t attend the birthday bash in Pataudi, it took many in B-Town by surprise. Both were spotted at their gyms the whole of last week as they didn’t fly down to Pataudi. But before people start thinking there’s a rift between the brother-sister duo and Saif and Kareena, they will be wrong. Fact is, Sara was prepping with the Kedarnath crew as she has been continuously shooting for the film for over two weeks now. While Taimur’s birthday was on December 20, her schedule was for the next few days after that and her director had wanted Sara to stay back for some workshops. It’s a challenging film and Sara is completely focusing on her debut film now.” (ALSO READ: Here’s Why Ranbir Kapoor Didn’t Click A Picture With Taimur Ali Khan Until The Christmas Lunch Yesterday – Exclusive)
The brother-sister duo, reportedly spent some quality time with their mother as well. Ibrahim, who is pursuing his higher studies in London, is in town for Christmas and wished to spend time with his sister as they are very close. “Both Sara and her brother are very close to Saif and Kareena and adore Taimur so if they skipped the bash at Pataudi there is nothing more to read into it,” the source added. Meanwhile, the bash had Kareena’s sister, Karisma Kapoor and her kids, Kiaan Raaj Kapoor and Sameria, in attendance. Apart from them, Taimur’s maternal grandparents, Randhir Kapoor and Babita were also there, and so was his paternal grandmother, Sharmila Tagore. Saif’s sister Soha Ali Khan with husband Kunal Kemmu and their daughter Inaaya Naumi Kemmu were also there in Pataudi.
Late actor Shashi Kapoor’s son Karan Kapoor, Amrita Arora Ladak with husband Shakeel Ladak and their sons were present at the do as well. While Sara and Ibrahim couldn’t visit Pataudi to be a part of Taimur’s birthday celebrations, they were both present at Saif and Kareena’s Christmas bash on Sunday night. The couple had hosted a private Christmas bash for only close family and friends at their Bandra residence. Among those who were present were Karisma with rumoured beau Sandeep Toshniwal, Soha and Kunal.
