Blast From The Past: Saif Leaves Amrita Singh out in the cold 0

Despite Saif Ali Khan's Royal Background, it seems that post the divorce, he had given ex-wife , Amrita Singh and his children(Sara and Ibrahim) a royal snub. For those not in the know, Saif and Amrita had a quiet runaway marriage, much to the surprise and disapproval of his parents.

Their marriage went through 13 years, which were faced with several challenges, to be expected for people that married so young and impulsively, but it seemed, Amrita bore the brunt of things. She reminisced with Stardust, that the despite tribulations her relationship, there were many trials, and Saif's Roving eye didn't help. She noted on one occasion, they were giving a lift to a wannabe actress in their car, she stepped out to buy something, and she came back to find them discussing alot more than just a movie. The final nail in the coffin was Saif's affair with Rosa, an italian Dancer, on a tour.

However, post the divorce, Saif pulled yet another brattish stunt, possibly from spite, by freezing all of Amrita's Accounts and all their joint accounts. The now family man, also apparently didnt offer any financial assistance towards bringing up his two children, Sara and Ibrahim. Amrita Singh suddenly resurfaced in search of work on television and the big screen, stating ' "I need to work to support myself and my kids."

Its famously known that now jail-bird Sanjay Dutt, stepped in by offering her financial help, which Amrita politely declined, preferring to stand on her own feet. She does however state how grateful she is. Parts of the film industry also showed their solidarity by being quick to offer her roles with inflated pay packages, however Singh remained selective and has feature in only five films and one tv serial since.

The distance between Amrita Singh and her now ex-in laws became canyons once she publicly declared that their son offered her no assistance, however sources state that Sharmila Tagore, say that she (Sharmila) never made much effort to be in touch with either Amrita or the grand kids
Even during the kids’ birthdays the grand parents weren’t present. The source further added 'Amrita is single handedly bringing up her kids. She’s bitter, feels she got a raw deal from Saif and his family'.

It looks like all bitterness has now been mended and things have turned for the better, with Saif's newfound involvement with the children, but reading the aftermath of the divorce, it was shocking to see the 'Cultured Nawab' turn so sour.

I am somewhat surprised that Saif is of such bad character and I hope he doesn't do the same to Kareena-because it would be really ironic. Kareena's mother Babita experienced something similar with her father when they separated. Saif not supporting his children is disgusting and those of you saying Amrita deserved what she got because she was an old has been, should be ashamed. Noone forced Saif into marriage and just because he was 21 doesn't mean he had free licence to do whatever the hell he wanted. There are a lot of misogynists who are commenting here and please think before you write rubbish and put Indian women in a time machine 50 years back.

    She should never have married him in the first place. To hell with him being a Nawab and all that bakwas, if this is true he definitely has a cheap character and I wont be shocked if Kareena too has problems in the near future.
    --------------------------------------------------------------
    Took the words out of my mouth!!!! So agree with this. As much as I really like Saif as an actor, it seems he has a roving eye and can't settle down with a woman. Kareena is lovely and I'd reckon some people would think that maybe she's too young for him and may go her own way later...but I believe the opposite. She'll be devoted to him and he'll do the dirty!!

    His children don't seem to have such complaints, whatever she may say.. they infact cheerfully attended their father's wedding to kareena and love her. I don't think what she says is complete truth. Both people are at fault, but she is at the losing end because Saif's career skyrocketed after he divorced her, and she never really was a big star to begin with. Sounds more a case of sour grapes.

    OMG. I'm more surprised by the comments that have been posted than by the story itself. The comments are so chauvinistic and sexist. Everyone seems to be blaming Amrita for marrying him. Is the answer "they were in love" no enough? Maybe at one point in time, they truly loved one another and thought that their love would overcome all other things, including their age differences (as corny as that sounds). The idea that a woman is getting blasted for marrying a man younger than her instead of a man who left his wife and children to fend for themselves blows my mind. Despite whatever problems they had, he had an obligation to pay child support if not alimony.

    I don't know how true the claim that he didn't have much contact with his children while they were growing up is true but I will say that it was only recently that his children have been seen with him. I simply hope that after getting married this time, he has matured and has decided to finally stand up and be a man.

    Why did she marry him? He was just a bachcha and was only beginning to sow all his wild oats.
    She was by then already a has been and he had just begun his career in Bollywood. Ofcourse the parents opposed! It's only natural, he was the son of a nawab, a brat young boy and she was by then done with her relationships with Ravi Shastri and Vinod Khanna
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    so true..she had hew own sting of affairs n then settled with 21 yrs old rich boy and now behaves like a bechari...regarding kids..everyone knows saif looks after them..his daughter n kareena are like friends...we saw her at the wedding too....she is just playing her bechari wife card...

    Saif comes from a "royal" family,but it doesn't make him cultured! His ancestors licked the boots of the British,his mother (who infact come from a REALLY cultured family,the family of the great Rabndranath Tagore) married Pataudi for money,come-on she probably never even went to college,& you think these people are cultured??? Saif was a cad & shall always be a cad,& he is married to a lady-cad Kareena,the perfect cad family!

    My mom's friend lives in the same building in Juhu, as Amrita Singh and the rumours are 10001% TRUE. Saif really was cruel with her and mal treated her.

    Freezing accounts can be standard in a separation, the other spouse in this case would have access to millions and would be able to put it aside as the courts have not yet been involved in the dividing up of assets. The money was all Saif's, he earned it/inherited it. Amrita was not from a poor family in any case (she is from a political family isn't she?)! This article makes out as if she went hungry when really she probably just lost the extravagant lifestyle she was used to. And to be completely honest Amrita Singh was no wilting flower, she was 30+ when she married Saif who was 21. What self-respecting 30 year old does that and expects it to last? The decade of difference will inevitably show up further down the track and it did, all's well that ends well, she's got her space, he's got his. His kids are not going hungry when their mother sees fit to parade her barely grown daughter on magazine covers and her son is going to be the next Nawab of Pataudi. No need for profound sympathies, no stars are comparable to normal people, he's not the mid-life crisis suffering father and she isn't a struggling single mother. Their just rich indulged people too used to getting their way and complaining on a public forum when it doesn't go the way they expected.

    1. There is no doubt Saif isnt a great father and he is too much of a self involved brat to care even for his kids leave alone Amrita. You know these type of men.. not found often but might charm the wits out of you.
    2. Having said that, a 33 yr old marrying a 21yr old sounds pretty creepy to me.
    I am a 30 yr old woman married to a year younger man but that is all the age difference i can take(+/-4?), but dating a 21 yr even at my age sounds creepy to me.

    And getting married within couple of weeks of meeting like amrita and saif.. amrita shud have known better ..... nutsos.

    Womem who marry older men for that reason...they are at the same maturity level...i am not stero typing every man... But in this case is wat it seems... Saif seems to finally have grown into his role as a father and good husband with time...

    Reply:

    So what about men who are 10 years or more older than their wife? Don't they rob the cradle? Their wives should dump them once their husband reaches 40?

    I think there are two sides o a story... Also she is ten yrs older then saif who was very young when he married and men take twice as long to mature then women do so she was already twenty yrs more mature then him... She robbed the cradle and that was the after math... Just bc ur in love doesnt mean u should get married on a whim especially with out parents approval...

    Why are people surprised ? Defending the man ? This is the same man who kicked up a ruckus in the Taj Hotel , the same man who again behaved like an idiot in the airport.... He was always famous for his infidelity . It's Amrita who made Farhan get him a role in DCH and made him clean up his wild ways . Kareena made a big mistake .

    Really??
    I can't bring myself to trust this kind of article.. The tone kind of gives it away.. plus, no quotes, so probably just some spicy conjecture.

    I've always felt for Amrita though. When they got married, she was a huge star and he was pretty much nobody other than his parents' son. She gave up all that stardom after marriage.. Then the tables turned, and how :( I remember, few years ago, I saw her doing a mother's (!) role in a tv serial (!!) - shocking! Anyway, good to see her in meatier roles now.

    I know I shouldn't be anti-Saif, because how can outsiders judge what went wrong in a marriage, but I kind of am. It's like an intuition I have that he's not a nice guy.. kind of substantiated by this (I think): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6YWWGMrCW5Q

    I do really like his acting and the films he produces, but on a personal level, not a fan. Again, this is all my opinion and I have little to back it up with. Like I said, intuition.

    Yes this is done to Amrita. She had to suffer a lot during her marriage for Saif's infidelity and after divorce intilly she had to Work to support her family and kids. Saif under pressure gave her 1 crore or 2 crore later. Whole film industry showed their solidarity to Amrita. It was Saif who freeze all their joint account. Saif treated Amrita very badly. There was a time Amrita did not have enough money to support her kids. Sanjay offered her help but she politely refused. She is a strong women and her kids are doing well. Today Saif is close to his kids.

    Where is the point to bring up such story? There is no way Saif can close Amirta's account. He might have closed their joint account which is normal after a break up. I don't think he did not support his children or his family and him did not have any contact to his children. Recently I saw two interviews of Amrita Singh, one with Saif in Simi Agarwal show, she was way back in the beginning of their marriage insecure about his co stars and the second after the release of her newest movie Auranzeb. She appeared bitter in her face but in both interviews she came across as a strong woman.

    who said he was cultured? he was just nawab & a greedy one too. He wanted to keep all his money. He understood no responsibility. I remember he has some heart or chest troubles, wonder even then kareena married him :D
