Bollywood has been a home to several talented and handsome hunks who has the charm to make the ladies go weak on their knees in no time. In fact, some actors are even defying age and are giving the young stars a run for their money. One such star is Saif Ali Khan. The superstar might be touching 50 this year but he is still a charmer in every sense and has an impeccable talent to pull off any character with ease and perfection, be it the quirky Gautam Kapoor from Cocktail or an intense role like Udaybhan Singh Rathod from Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior. While Saif has something new to offer every time he hits the screen, the senior star’s performances are indeed a treat for the fans.

Interestingly, Saif has a knack of hitting the headlines for a long time especially for his love life. Yes! The Nawab of Pataudi has an intriguing love life and he has been quite outspoken about it. We all know that the Main Khiladi Tu Anari actor had made the heads turned back in the 1990s after he married Amrita Singh who was 13 years elder to him. For the uninitiated, the duo had met on the during the photoshoot of Saif’s Yeh Dillagi. Both caught each other’s attention and soon they were seen dating each other. In fact, Saif and Amrita also had two kids together, daughter Sara Ali Khan and son Ibrahim Ali Khan. However, things turned worse between the couple and they parted ways in 2004.

Needless to say, there have been speculations about what went wrong in Saif and Amrita’s paradise. The reports also suggested that they parted way due to Saif’s proximity with Rosa Catalano. However, in an interview to a leading daily back in 2005, Saif had rubbished the reports and even revealed that it was Amrita’s changed behaviour towards him and his family that led to things turning sour between them. The Kal Ho Naa Ho star asserted that Amrita Singh used to constantly insult his mother Sharmila Tagore and sister Soha Ali Khan. Besides, according to Saif, the Aaina actress also made him feel worthless time and again with her taunts, jeers and insults.

This isn’t all. Saif Ali Khan also asserted that Amrita didn’t even let him meet his kids post their separation which left him heartbroken. “My wife and I have gone our separate ways. I respect my wife’s space. But why am I being constantly reminded of how terrible a husband I was, and how awful a father I am. I’ve my son Ibrahim’s photograph in my wallet. Each time I look at it, I feel like crying. I miss my daughter Sarah all the time. I’m not allowed to meet my children. They aren’t allowed to come to visit me, let alone stay with me. Why? Because there’s a new woman in my life who’d influence my children against their mother. That’s so much hogwash and Amrita knows it. 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,” Saif was quoted saying.

But looks like, Saif and Amrita’s equation has improved over the years as the Love Aaj Kal actor shares a great both with both Sara and Ibrahim at the moment. In fact, Sara and Ibrahim also have a great rapport with Saif’s second wife Kareena Kapoor Khan and are also of Saifeena’s son Taimur Ali Khan who seems to be the apple of everyone’s eye. Not only they are often seen spending time together like one big family and make sure to be by each other’s side during the family get-together and other celebrations, but Sara also seeks advice from Saif and Kareena. In fact, the Cocktail star also texted Sara to check if she was alright post the debacle of her 2020 release Love Aaj Kal.

Meanwhile, talking about the work front, Saif Ali Khan will be next seen in the much anticipated Bunty Aur Babli 2 along with Rani Mukerji, Siddhant Chaturvedi and Sharvari. To note, Saif will be reuniting with Rani after 12 years in this much talked about sequel of 2005 release Bunty Aur Babli.

Seeing the conditions of the muslims in india, I can see another 2 nation theory in the offing. Its time indian muslims should get united and get themselves liberated from Nazi india and to form a seperate state inside the present india. Sikhs to follow as well.

Saif was irrelevant in Bollywood 30 years ago and he is irrelevant even now. In between he Got married to relevant actresses of their generations and produced 3 kids with those two different women. He is uneducated,spoilt,womanizer.

And Amrita was an old starlet dumped by cricketers and old divorced actors. Who would have thought she'd land q catch as big as Saif from the Pataudi family!

Saif is a good actor. No doubt. But it took him a long time to focus. He took Dil chahata hain coz Amrita made him, he admitted this. No self respecting wife wld want a good for nothing husband. So she nagged him. Correct. What did his mom do? Nothing, left him to grow up with no qualifications. He himself said he didnt consider playing cricket as it required a lot of discipline which he lacked. He is lucky Amrita married him, gave him the boost he needed in life. He Was chucked out of his first film for indiscipline. So if she was angry and called his family names why is she wrong? Saif was involved with Preity Zinta, then Rosa. Rosa he flaunted about. They did Ads together, then he flipped for Kareena, who comes from a gold digger mind set. Karishmas marriage went kaput coz her husband understood she was only with him for money. Saif will too very soon. About his kids n step mother....its proof that when Saif actually did marry Kareena,Amrita sent both Sara n Ibrahim to the wedding all decked up. Thank God Amrita had the kids in her custody,they have grown up to be educated and fairly well behaved kids. Taimur is going to grow up into a spoilt brat. You can see it in his body language

Indeed old women Amrita just ticked the prince Saif Ali after the breakup with cricketer VengSarkar.. Naturally women after 40Yrs of age can't offer much and Saif then 26 yrs old.. Of course family of saif was never happy with the union as the daughter-in-law almost the same age group of Mother-in-law.. Just like Ekta Kapoor serials..

Aare baba, when you married a lady 13 years older to you, she behaved like a mother, because your own mother couldn’t make anything out of you. You are spoilt and a womanizer. Your mother did nothing. So your elderly wife took control. Now your current Gold digger wife is 13 years younger to you. Must be feeling good, nah?

Jason Momoa is married to an older woman, 13 years his senior. Is a bigger star than Saif ever was, is more handsome than any living man alive. If I am not wrong Kareena also has a similar age gap with Saif, so that should end bad too?

Saif is very rich with or without Bollywood career. Ha ha plus he has what money cant buy...the Patuadi name... Amrita hit a jackpot

Amrita married Saif when he was a struggler in bollywood. Had she been a gold digger, she would have married any other rich man out there. Why Saif? Only because, they both were in love with each other. Time changes, situation changes and so does people. Not every marriage happens to be a fairytale. Thousand times better to go separate ways than being stuck in an unhappy relationship just for the sake of society and just give other people a fake perfect happy married life portrait.

Amrita was the gold digger. Kareena and Saif are very happy. Ideal match.

I really feel one never knows what really happens in a relation . It's just that nosy people need something to comment and pass their time . At one point of time they had a reason to be together then at some point of time ,they didn't . That's It . Saif is a Good Star and a person , Amrita is Good mother who has raised 2 charming kids and maybe needs something to keep herself busy . Its their life , Let them BE .

Pinkvilla, are you running so short of ideas amid lockdown that you have to stoop down so freaking low to publish an article like this! Both Saif and Amrita have moved on with their lives and both are happy in their own ways. Both of their chidren have been raised wonderfully and both seem to have immense respect and are equally happy with their parents. Please stop publishing awful meaningless articles which only gives a negative vibe to the readers. Please publish articles that spread positive vibes to readers at this deadly pendamic phase.

Saif ali khan is not at all a superstar but of course a superflop actor.

There’s absolutely nothing clueless about Saif. He’s one of the finest actors, is experimental and have an unmatched intellect and witt but luck in recognition has not favored him. Kareena saved him, Amrita and his children from hardships. She could have been a different kind of stepmom like others but her goodness, generosity and ability to ignore the pettiness has allowed them to enjoy the best life has to offer and be the happy people they are today. Saif and she has a beautiful relationship and he shows so much love for all his kids. He and Amrita’s relationship was bound for disaster because it was based on deception and desperation. He wanting guidance and mother figure and she wanting stability and kids from good and financially secure stock at her age and end of career. By her own admission, She didn’t send him home after their first date and kept him there. Did not invite his parents or sisters to their wedding......right away starting off with bad family dynamics.

It was never going to last, the age gap is so big. Sounds like Amrita attacked him less about real resentment towards him, but because of her own choices. She gave up her career as a big star to be a mom and a wife for a younger lesser successful actor, and then while he's becoming huge, can't compare to the girls he pairs with. The same thing will happen to Priyanka, which just pisses me off.

What career did she give up? Its film industry and once you are past your prime you dint have a career unlike in the corporate world where age doesn't matter. She latched onto a naive 21 year old and tricked him into a whirlwind romance and sudden secret marriage where even his family was not aware. If they were aware they would have tried to persuade him to not to rush in.

What is Kareena doing? Who is looking after Taimur? Maids n nannies. When Amrita worked Saif created a ruckus...now nothing? If Amrita taunted him for doing nothing,was she wrong? Amrita bought up her kids beautifully. Lets see what Taimur turns up to be. Character? Saif had a spew of affairs. Till he met Kareena, who just is in it for his money

Being a working mom scheduling your work around your child is different to giving them full time to nannies. Kareena has the whole family involved from play dates with soha and Inaaya to spending time with Sharmila and sarah and Ibrahim. Lots of people have nannies, they dont need to do everything themselves to be good parents.

He knows that he has spent most of his life clueless in terms of work. He has time and again said he joined the industry by chance, has always looked down upon the content bollywood makes, is "too westernized in his taste" and the choices he made in the last decade failed at box office. This is no small thing when you are married to an A-list actress. Kareena has shown a lot of patience towards his professional choices and attitude which probably amrita could not. No working woman can tolerate a clueless partner and that his family never accepted amrita might have also added to the fuel.

Saif is not exactly dependant on his acting alone lol! He has various other financial interests which Amrita knew of very well. Amrita was past her prime and latched onto a clueless 21 year old who simply liked rebelling against his parents just for the heck of it at that point. Which parent would like their son to get married at 21 years, that too to a woman 13 years older who would need to have children pretty soon? She milked it as much as she could. It was bound to fail when you marry an immature 21 year old man who didnt need to be tied into marriage or fatherhood at such a young age. Kudos to Saif he's handled the responbsibilty of being a father so well. Clearly Sarah & Ibrahim have a good loving relationship with him.
