The story of Bollywood actor Saif Ali Khan first marriage with Amrita Singh had ended on a bad note. The actor, who is currently married to Kareena Kapoor, was earlier married to Amrita Singh for 13 years. So what exactly happened that led the two stay together for 13 years and then split?
They went through many ups and downs but stood by each other until they went through a bizarre divorce in 2004. Things turned ugly into their marriage when Saif’s now ex-wife Amrita Singh caught Saif Ali Khan and a girl talking about things far more personal than just business or movies. According to Amrita, Saif was having an affair with Rosa, an Italian dancer, who he was courting overseas. Well, nothing was officially confirmed.
However, now a throwback interview of Saif Ali Khan is creating a wave on social media. Back in 2005, the actor gave an interview to, The Telegraph where he spoke his heart out on his troubled marriage. The interview was taken when Saif’s father Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi got bail.
During the interview, Saif had opened up on his ex-wife Amrita and how things went wrong between them. He stated, “My wife and I have gone our separate ways. I respect my wife’s space. But why am I being constantly reminded of how terrible a husband I was, and how awful a father I am, I’ve my son Ibrahim’s photograph in my wallet. Each time I look at it, I feel like crying. I miss my daughter Sarah all the time. I’m not allowed to meet my children. It isn’t nice to be constantly reminded of how worthless you are and to have taunts, jeers, insults and abuses thrown at your mother and sister all the time. I’ve gone through all of it.”
He also spoke about the alimony he gave to his estranged wife. “I’m supposed to give Amrita Rs 5 crore, of which I’ve already given her approximately Rs 2.5 crore. Also, I’m paying Rs 1 lakh per month until my son becomes 18. I’m not Shah Rukh Khan. I don’t have that kind of money. I’ve promised her I’ll pay up the rest of the money, and I will, even if I’ve to slog till I drop dead. Whatever I’ve earned from doing ads, stage shows and films is being given for my children. I’ve no money. Our bungalow is for Amrita and the kids, and never mind the relatives who’ve joined her after my departure,” said Saif.
Saif spoke about how he was finding solace in the relationship with his then Italian girlfriend Rosa. “Rosa and I stay in a pokey two-room apartment. Still, I’ve never been more at peace with myself. After a long long time I feel my self-worth has returned,” he stated.
Saif has two kids son Ibrahim and daughter Sara from his marriage with Amrita Singh and a son Taimur Ali Khan with his present wife and Bollywood actress Kareena Kapoor Khan.
