Kareena always follows Saif Ali Khan on his film shoots

We noticed a few star wives landing up announced or unannounced on the sets of their husband's films.

Is it a case of truly missing one's spouse? Or is it just the practice of holding hubby on a tight leash? Mid-Day takes a tongue-in-cheek look into the insecurities that some of our star wives seem to have become victims of.

Kareena Kapoor

Kareena is known to be one of the boldest among all her A-list peers when it comes to doing steamy scenes with her heroes. But incidentally, she also happens to be a star wife who constantly feels the need to apparently check on husband Saif during his shoots away from home. Kareena also rakes up thousands of air miles on innumerable vacations with Saif. Perhaps, the concept of having some precious me-time is quite alien to her. Currently, Bebo is visiting Saif on the sets of his Ileana D'Cruz co-starrer in the US.

Genelia D'Souza

She may have dated Riteish Deshmukh for years but that didn't stop Genelia from dropping by on the sets of his latest film. The actress even carried dubbas full of tasty dishes for her husband. We hope the tiffin carriers didn't have dollops of insecurity laced in them as well.

Ever since he got hitched to Maanyata, Sanjay Dutt managed to keep a squeaky clean image. But Maanyata is known among Sanjay's circle of friends to be extremely choosy about her husband's buddies. She was known to not only keep a check on Sanjay's diet during his film schedules, but also accompanied him on sight-seeing tours wherever they were shooting. In fact, on the sets of Blue, a team of unit-hands were handed the responsibility of entertaining Mrs Dutt with her choice of food and boat rides too.

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan

Whether it be her brand endorsement abroad, attending fashionable derby races in the UK or even gracing charity galas overseas, Abhishek Bachchan has been a constant fixture by Aishwarya's side. Late last year while Abhi was shooting in Chicago for his upcoming action thriller, Ash dropped by on the sets and apparently gave his co-star Katrina Kaif the royal snub.

Maria Goretti

Ever since Arshad Warsi was linked with his co-star Dia Mirza, his wife of many years, Maria apparently decided to take matters into her own hands. Maria now has almost become a permanent fixture next to Arshad at most public events as well as on his film sets. In fact, even after Arshad once commented in jest about how possessive his wife is.
