New Delhi: Bollywood actress Kareena Kapoor on Friday said she hopes to settle down with beau Saif Ali Khan and become the 'Begum of Pataudi' by the "end of this year". "Hopefully, by the end of this year," Kareena said here, following a question about her D-day.

"I am working on 'Heroine' and I need to finish the film first. But we're not going to announce the date yet. I don't understand why the entire nation is in a hurry to make me the Begum of Pataudi. There's no rush. Obviously people have to be patient," she added.

The 31-year-old has been romantically involved with Saif, 10 years her senior, since 2007.Saif was appointed the 10th Nawab of Pataudi in 2011, after his father, Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi's death.
