Saif okay after giving back Padma Shri : Kareena


Controversy surrounding Padma Shri honour to Saif Ali Khan, wife Kareena  has said, that he would be “okay” with giving it back.

An RTI application had revealed in August last year that the government was examining a demand for taking back the Padma Shri conferred on Khan in the wake of a Mumbai court framing charges against him.

It is alleged that Khan had punched on the nose of a South Africa-based businessman and his father-in-law at a Colaba hotel in February 2012.

On the issue Kareena Kapoor has said, “the fact is that it is a national honour and they have obviously researched pretty well to have given him this award.” she said, “If they want to discuss it, what had happened at Wasabi and how it should affect the Padma Shri, as far as I know, I haven’t discussed it with him yet but I am quite sure he is pretty relaxed and okay to give it back.” In response to a subsequent RTI application filed to know the status of his complaint, the Home Ministry had replied that “the matter was under examination”.
