Down south, hero Saif Ali Khan is not as popular as his enchanting wife Kareena Kapoor. If not for ‘Love Aaj Kal’, Saif wouldn’t have got even that limited recognition. However the recent Court orders have bumped him into the spot light, and after seeing Kareena in Hyderabad for Singham Returns promotions we couldn’t get thoughts off Saif.
Recently a Mumbai court ordered to frame charges on Saif Ali Khan under section 325 IPC, in connection with a brawl at a five star hotel in 2012. A South African businessman of Indian origin accused that Saif thrashed him allegedly when the former asked him to not make heavy noise in the dining hall. This led to a speculation that Saif will be stripped of his Padma Sri award that is conferred in 2010. Anyway, Home Ministry sources have confirmed today that are no such plans.
‘Government has due discretion whether a Padma Award should be stripped of a person even if he is convicted. How a minor scuffle would be fair enough to strip an award that recognizes the outstanding achievements of him in the field of entertainment’, a Home Ministry source commented. Seems like Kareena Kapoor’s husband is safe with his award.
