On the eve of Kareena's 28th birthday, her mom Babita suggested that she should make it really special. Not only did she have Saif accompanying her in the cold climates of north India, but she also got the opportunity to share her birthday with the numerous Jawans who were present at Kargil. Both Kareena and Saif really enjoyed and felt privileged to have spent time in the midst of these brave soldiers, who defend our country.
On asking Kareena, she said, "As we were passing by Kargil one day prior to my birthday, mom told me to visit the Jawans as it would be a unique experience and a once in a lifetime opportunity to get their blessings as well. Both Saif and I were excited as well as amazed with the way the soldiers live in such extreme climates and still manage to keep calm under pressure, which gives us an immense sense of pride. We wish them luck and not just them but all the soldiers of our country and wish to thank them for all that they have sacrificed and done for us - the people."
That must have been indeed 'Special' both for Kareena and the Jawans.
