Saif Ali Khan On Paying Rs 5 Crores As Alimony To Amrita Singh, ‘I’m Not Shah Rukh Khan, I Don’t Have That Kind Of Money’


Saif Ali Khan and Amrita Singh were married for thirteen years before parting ways in 2004 and in 2012 he tied the knot with Kareena Kapoor. As they are termed ‘Modern’ family in Bollywood and things look all happy, things were not amicable then – during the time of divorce in 2004.

In an old interview, Saif expressed himself for paying huge sums of alimony to Amrita, which made things difficult for him.

Talking with Telegraph in 2005, Saif mentioned that he had no money and had to pay a massive amount to Amrita. He was quoted saying  “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.”

At the time of this interview, Saif’s kids 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 saying, “Why am I being constantly reminded of how terrible a husband I was, and how awful a father I am. I have my son Ibrahim’s photograph in my wallet. Each time I look at it, I feel like crying. I miss my daughter Sara all the time. I am not allowed to meet my children. They aren’t allowed to come to visit me, let alone stay with me.”

During that time Amrita was actively working in television the ‘Cocktail’ actor was apprehensive about her working in TV. He said, “Right now, my kids are growing up with Amrita’s relatives and maidservants while she’s out working in a TV serial. Why does she need to do that, when I’m more than willing to support my family?”

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