A lot has been said about Sara Ali Khan and her alleged troubled ties with dad Saif Ali Khan after her name cropped up in the NCB drug probe. Since Sara was summoned by NCB a couple of weeks ago, rumours have been going rife about how both Saif and Kareena have safely distanced themselves from the actress so as to avoid controversy.
However, this is certainly not the first time that we are hearing something about a supposed rift between Saif and his children from the first marriage. Even before the drug probe came into the picture, stories were often circulated about how Saif has been absolutely concentrated on Taimur since his birth and has thus left his other two children, Sara and Ibrahim largely ignored.
However, the actor put a full stop to all of these rumours and speculations while talking to an entertainment news portal recently. When asked if he feels guilty about spending way more of his time with Taimur in comparison to the other two, Saif promptly replied that all of his children are equally dear to him. “I am always there for them. I love and adore all my three children. It’s true that I spend a lot of time with Taimur. But I am constantly connected with my elder son Ibrahim and my daughter Sara," he said.
Saif further talked about how he shares a unique bond with each of them, and said, "All my three children have different places in my heart. If I am hurt with Sara about something, Taimur can’t make me feel better about it. Every time you have a child you divide your heart. And they are all different in age. I feel each of my three children requires a different kind of connection. I could have long chat on the phone or have dinner with Sara or Ibrahim which I can’t do with Taimur."
Now, that's beautifully put, right? Also, while Sara is already on her way to stardom, Saif shared during the interaction that he harbours Bollywood aspirations for the other two as well. And while he believes that Ibrahim is almost prepared for his launch, he is also of the view that he should wait a little longer and then begin with a bang. As for Taimur, here's what he has to say: "I hope he keeps it up on the Friday of his first release. I’d like him to be an actor."
Well, rest assured, Saif is one cool Bollywood dad and for everyone 'worried' about him deserting Sara in the time of crisis, well, now you know the truth!
