Kareena Kapoor to retain her maiden surname

After Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor tied the knot on 16th October 2012, there were several speculations wherein people were wondering whether Kareena Kapoor would be converting to Islam and change her last name or not. 

At the recent music launch of TALAASH, director Reema Kagti clarified that Kareena Kapoor would retain her maiden name. Her name in the credits of the movie will be written as only Kareena Kapoor.


Even before Kareena tied the knot with Saif Ali Khan there were speculations created amongst people whether she would convert to Islam or not.


Saif and Kareena completed the formalities of a registered marriage on 16th October.


Ever since Saif and Kareena started dating each other in 2007, they were hardly any interviews that ended without the big question about the D-day. But they evaded it and maintained silence till the last minute.


According to some sources there was an initial suggestion from Saif's extended family that Kareena should convert. But later Kareena's immediate family and Saif's sat together and decided to do away with any conversion or religious wedding to avoid controversy.



Sharmila Tagore had converted to Islam when she married cricketer Mansur Ali Pataudi, donning the name Ayesha Begum.



When asked whether she will convert into Islam post her marriage, the 32-year-old Kareena said: "That's a very wrong question, which I will not be answering."
