While B-town is abuzz with reports of Government contemplating on taking back the ‘Padma Shri’ awarded to actor Saif Ali Khan, actor's wife Kareena Kapoor Khan feels that her husband would be ‘okay’ to return the award 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.

Reportedly, when asked to comment on the issue, actress Kareena Kapoor said, "The fact is that it is a National honour and they have obviously researched pretty well to have given him this award."
She added further, "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."
Kareena gave the interview to a TV channel on the sidelines of the Lakme India Fashion Week in Mumbai.
