Saif Ali Khan's married life has always been grabbing the limelight, be it because of his nasty divorce with ex-wife Amrita Singh or his much hyped wedding with Kareena Kapoor Khan. While the actor is enjoying a happy married life with Kareena currently, his previous wedding did end on a sour note.
In one of his interviews, Saif had admitted to be facing constant insult from Amrita, who used to taunt him by referring to him as 'worthless'. The Nawab of Pataudi also revealed that he had to pay a hefty alimony to his ex-wife Amrita Singh which he still continues to pay.
Yes! That's true. Saif was told to pay a whopping amount of Rs 5 crore to Singh along with certain amount which had to pay till his son Ibrahim turned 18. Ibrahim is currently 16 and will turn 18 in March 2019.
“I’m supposed to give Amrita INR 5 crore, of which I’ve already given her approximately INR 2.5 crore. Also, I’m paying INR 1 lakh per month until my son becomes 18," Saif was quoted as saying.
It was indeed a hard time for Saif who was suffering from a financial crunch in 2000s.
"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," he added.
Saif and Amrita, who were married for 13 years, parted ways in 2004. While Amrita is busy taking care of her kids - daughter Sara and son Ibrahim, Saif has moved on in life and married Kareena Kapoor in 2012 after dating each other for a couple of years. The couple even has a son Taimur Ali Khan Pataudi.
Currently, Saif Ali Khan is busy promoting his upcoming movie 'Kaalakaandi'. The movie which was slated to release on September 8 and now been postponed for an indefinite time.
Apart from 'Kaalakaandi', Saif Ali Khan is also busy shooting for Raja Krishna Menon's 'Chef' which is a remake of Hollywood film of the same name, along with 'Bazaar' and web series titled 'Sacred Games'.
