Actress Soha Ali Khan, who has been in a relationship with actor Kunal Khemu from quite a some time, says though her mother keeps asking her to settle down, brother Saif advises to take the plunge at the age of 40.
Soha and Kunal recently moved into a new house and are
living together but it seems marriage is not on cards yet.
"My mother tells me every day I should get married and if
I would have gone by her way then by now I should have had 20
children. She tells me all the time get married, get married
but now she has resigned, she is tired, fed up of telling and
is like do whatever you want," Soha said.
On the other hand, brother Saif feels people should get
married at 40.
"He says marriage is very serious commitment and you are
genuinely not ready for it until you are 40. He advised me to
do it. When my mother called him and told him to talk to us
why we are not getting married this is what he told her," she
At 42, Saif, son of former Indian cricket captain Mansoor
Ali Khan Pataudi and actress Sharmila Tagore, sealed his five

The 34-year-old actress says Kunal is her support system
and is a happy-go-lucky person.
"He is genuinely a happy person and he makes me laugh, I
know when I am feeling low, he will be able to get me out of
it, which is important. I think he gives good professional
advice and he is an affectionate person," she said.
"It is nice to have someone who is loving, kind and has a
healthy sense of humour. He is quite a muscle guy.. So you
feel secure. There was a burglary and he did catch the burglar
I was like its cool," she added.
Soha bonds quite well with Kunal's family and feels very
comfortable with them.
"They are lovely and very warm people. They are warm,
accepting... Even the whole live-in situation that we have
decided to do... Normally families won't celebrate this but
they are supportive. I feel they are like my family. His
father has so much knowledge and is well read, he has worked
in theatre, films and there is lot to learn from him. He has
great sense of humor," Soha said.
"And Kunal's mother just loves to feed you with so much
food. We had lunch and dinner with them on Saturday.. I make
sure Kunal sits next to me so that I can slip things one after
the other in his plate," she quipped.
