In an interview, Saif Ali Khan opened up about his divorce. The actor and former wife Amrita Singh filed for divorce 15 years ago when Sara was just 10 and Ibrahim was about 4 years old.
He said in the interview that there was a time when he was not allowed to meet his children Sara and Ibrahim.
Reports add that as the actor was in a relationship with a model that time, he was not allowed to meet his children.
"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 Sara all the time,” he said.
"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?" he had told Kolkata's The Telegraph.
Saif Ali Khan is now happily married to Kareena Kapoor Khan and is a doting father to his son, Taimur Ali Khan.
