Saif Ali Khan on paying Rs 5 crores in alimony to Amrita Singh: ‘I’m not Shah Rukh Khan, I haven’t got that a lot cash’

Saif Ali Khan and Amrita Singh were married for thirteen years before splitting in 2004 and tying the knot with Kareena Kapoor in 2012. Considering they’re labeled a “modern” family in Bollywood and everything looks happy, things weren’t amicable back then – during the time of their divorce in 2004.

In an old interview, Saif spoke about paying huge alimony to Amrita, which made things difficult for him.

Speaking to the Telegraph in 2005, Saif mentioned that he had no money and had to pay a huge sum to Amrita. He was quoted as saying: ‘I am to give Amrita Rs 5 crore of which I have already given her about Rs 2.5 crore. Also I will pay Rs 1 lakh per month until my son turns 18. I am not Shah Rukh Khan. I do not have so much money. I promised her I’d pay the rest of the money, and I will, even if I have to work my ass off.”

At the time of this interview, Saif’s children Sara Ali Khan and Ibrahim Ali Khan were quite young and the Hum Tum actor revealed that he was not allowed to meet his children. He was quoted as saying: “Why am I constantly reminded of what a terrible husband I was and what a terrible father I am? I have the photo of my son Ibrahim in my wallet. Every time I look at it I cry. I miss my daughter Sara all the time. I am not allowed to meet my children. You are not allowed to visit me, let alone stay with me.”

During this time Amrita was actively working in television, the ‘Cocktail’ actor was concerned about her work in television. He said: “Right now my children are being raised by Amrita’s relatives and maids while she works on a TV series. Why does she have to do this when I’m more than willing to support my family?”

Meanwhile, when Sara Ali Khan appeared in Koffee with Karan 7, she mentioned that she never had “protective daddy vibes” growing up. Kareena Kapoor Khan also mentioned on the same show in the latest episode that “there is love and greetings” for everyone.
