Kareena Kapoor Khan’s bitter break-up with Shahid Kapoor made headlines long after the two actors moved on in their respective lives. The actors have refrained from talking about it—but Kareena recently opened up about working with Shahid in ‘Jab We Met’, partying ways, and also meeting her husband Saif Ali Khan on the sets of ‘Tashan’.

In an interview with Anupama Chopra, Kareena talked about how Shahid Kapoor encouraged her to play the role of Geet in ‘Jab We Met’ and she added: "Of course, then destiny had its own plan and life took its own course. A lot happened in the making of this film and Tashan and our lives... We all kind of went our separate ways. And this beauty of a movie came out of it."

Kareena, who has confessed in several interviews that she fell head over heels in love with Saif Ali Khan during the making of ‘Tashan’, also revealed in the aforementioned interview that Jab We Met "changed her career" while Tashan "changed her life."

She added: "I think we just had to kind of do this movie at this time when Tashan was being made... And I met Saif. So I kind of did Tashan for that actually... When I actually thought that was gonna change my life and my career. But this (Jab We Met) changed my career and that (Tashan) changed my life. Because I did meet the man of my dreams and I did marry him. And this (her relationship with Shahid Kapoor) kind of took its own course in which both Shahid and me went our separate ways."

After dating for more than five years, Kareena and Saif tied the knot in 2012 and welcomed their son Taimur in 2016. Shahid is now married to Mira Rajput, with whom he has two children—daughter Misha and son Zain.

Earlier, in an interview to Pinkvilla, Kareena revealed that Saif brought up the possibility of their marriage for the first time on the sets of Tashan.

"He did tell me that 'I think we should get married.' He told me that in Greece and he told me once in Ladakh as well that 'We will make a great couple.' And, at that time I was like, 'I don't know because I don't know you.' So, it was not really a 'no' but it was more like, 'I want to know you better.' I think I made the best decision of my life," she told the publication.

Other than ‘Jab We Met’, Kareena and Shahid have also co-starred in films like ‘Milenge Milenge’, ‘36 China Town’ and ‘Chup Chup Ke’.
