Kareena Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan have reportedly decided to call off their wedding on October 16.
The actress is said to be worried about what will happen to her career after her marriage.
A close family friend told the Mumbai Mirror: "The wedding was indeed scheduled for October 16. The arrangements had begun. In fact, when Sharmilaji [Tagore] and Bebo were in London last month along with the rest of the family, they shopped for the wedding as well.
"The venue and the guest list were also finalised. But Bebo has second thoughts now. But Sharmilaji is a very non-interfering mum and, by extension, a hands-off mum-in-law. Reports that she has served Saif and Kareena an 'ultimatum' to marry are completely false.
"She is the last person to persuade her children into taking any decision, especially one as serious as marriage. She has left the final decision to Saif and Kareena."
It has been reported that Kapoor was dropped from Sanjay Leela Bhansali's adaptation of Romeo and Juliet because the director decided that he could not have a married actress play the female lead.
However, the Agent Vinod star claimed that she did not have enough time in her schedule to shoot the film.
