"I’m not Shah Rukh Khan. I don’t have that kind of money", says Saif Ali Khan about Amrita Singh's alimony.

Saif Ali Khan is one of the most popular celebrities of Bollywood. The Hum Saath Saath Hai actor turned a year old today.

Saif has always been a superstar at the box office but when we talk about his personal life, it's a tragedy. Saif divorced his ex-wife Amrita Singh in 2005 and married to Kareena Kapoor in 2012.

One thing that went viral was that Kareena Kapoor attended Saif Ali Khan's marriage to Amrita Singh in 1991. Kareena was 11 years old at that time. After his wedding, she went up to him and congratulated. To which Saif had replied, "Thank you, beta"!!

Today, Kareena Kapoor Khan is happily married to Saif Ali Khan and they have a cute baby boy, whom they've fondly named Taimur Ali Khan Pataudi. But things were totally different at that time. When Saif entered the film industry, Amrita Singh was already a star. She was outspoken and courageous, and he was cool and dignified.

Saif and Amrita met for the first time during Rahul Rawail’s film, which Saif was going to make his debut. Since Rahul and Amrita shared a great camaraderie, he invited her to do a photoshoot with the star cast of the film. During the photoshoot, Saif decided to put his arms around Amrita for the picture and that is when Amrita first noticed him well. It wasn't the love at first sight but there was something that attracted both of them to each other.

Saif dialed Amrita’s home number hoping to invite her for dinner and then Amrita replied, "No, I don’t go out for dinner. But, you can come home for dinner if you like.” In his own words, Saif had said, “I did not go over there with any kind of expectations. I just wanted to have a nice time with her and get to know her better.”

The duo talked about everything and anything and got along like a house on fire and talked about things ranging from professional to personal topics. As the night grew darker, the palpable fire between the two ignited and they kissed. After that passionate liplock, Saif did not leave Amrita’s home post the episode for the next two days.

Saif Ali Khan and Amrita Singh decided that they could not live without each other. So it did not come across as a surprise when the actress who is known for being bold and headstrong, decided to tie the knot with a much younger Saif Ali Khan.

After 13 years of marriage, Saif and Amrita decided to part away. Saif and Amrita have two kids, Sara Ali Khan and Ibrahim Ali Khan. And even though the relationship between Amrita, their two kids is now cordial, it was not the same earlier.

In an interview with the Telegraph, Saif had once said, "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 to 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. 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. 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. Now I feel healed again.

Today, if I’ve found someone who actually makes me feel I’m worth something, what’s wrong with it? Earlier, I had hit such a rock bottom with my self-esteem that I’d be shocked if someone complimented me for my looks! Today if someone says something nice, I say, ‘That’s fine. Stars are supposed to be complimented'."

After his separation with Amrita in 2004, Saif allegedly moved on to an Italian born star, Rosa Catalano. But the starlet alleged that she had no knowledge of the Cocktail star’s previous marriage or kids. She only came to know about Saif’s past once she landed in India.

Taimur Story
Kareena and Saif’s relationship began while the Kareena and Saif Ali Khan started shooting for the film Tashan. Saif’s first wife, Amrita Singh, a Sikh had converted to Islam. Kareena officially added Khan in her name but chose not to change her religion. Later, in 2016, Kareena and Saif welcomed their first child, Taimur Ali Khan.
