Saif Ali Khan’s marriage as well as divorce with Bollywood actress Amrita Singh created a lot of buzz. Their love story was unusual as she was 12 years elder to him, but age was never a deterrent for them to settle in matrimony. They got married in 1991 and have two children, Sara and Ibrahim.
However, they ended their marriage in 2004. The actor has maintained a dignified silence on the issue ever since.
Recently, Saif spoke about his divorce, said that it is the worst thing ever especially for the kids.
In an interview with Pinkvilla, Saif opened up about his divorce with Amrita. He said, “It’s the worst thing in the world. It’s something that I still feel I wish it could be different. I don’t think I will really be okay with it ever. There are certain things that can’t be and I try and make peace with them and myself by saying that I was 20 and quite young. So much changes. You like to think of parents together but they are individual units too. So everyone can be okay with a modern relationship also.”
Saif Ali Khan reveals how his divorce with Amrita Singh affected his kids
Talking about how his kids Sara and Ibrahim were affected by the divorce, the actor shared, “No child should be deprived of a warm home. You have to make the most of whatever situation you are in. Life is beautiful and nobody can be sitting around, complaining too much. Sometimes, having two parents together might not be the best thing for anyone. A nice stable home is a wonderful environment and that’s what you would like to share with your kids.”
Saif and Amrita filed for divorce after 13 years of marriage. Later, Saif tied the knot with Kareena Kapoor in 2012 and they have a son Taimur Ali Khan.
