Kareena says Saif Ali Khan has no problem in returning Padma Shri award
There are speculations that Government may take back the Padma Award from Bollywood star Saif Ali Khan, that was given to him in 2010 for his contribution in Indian Film Industry, in the wake of a Mumbai court framing charges against him.

Reacting to the speculations Kareena Kapoor Khan, the wife of Saif Ali Khan, has said, as reported by, that it was not Saif who demanded the Padma honour, it was conferred to him for his contribution to Hindi cinema. She even added that the 'Center can take the Padma honour back and Saif will be happy to give it back'.

Though there have been no official announcements regarding the Center's decision as of now, but this news is making rounds since the time a noted RTI activist SC Agrawal had filed compliant against Saif Ali Khan to the Union Home Ministry on 14 March 2014 and demanded to take back Padma award from the actor. 

In response to the subsequent RTI queries from Agrawal, Centre responded that the matter is under examination.

Saif Ali Khan came into controversy after a scuffle happened at the Wasabi restaurant of Taj Hotel in Colaba in February 2012. It is alleged that Khan had punched on the nose of a South Africa based businessman and his father-in-law.

Saif Aali Khan Khan, who got married to Bollywood actress Kareena Kapoor in 2014, is also involved in other controversies. He is facing criminal charges in Rajasthan for allegedly hunting the blackbuck deer, a protected species, while on a film shoot in 1998. Actor Salman Khan, Sonali Bindre and Tabu are also co-accused in that case.
