Fridays are for flashbacks and we love digging deep to find unseen pictures of our favourite celebrities. Today, we stumbled upon an old picture of Saif Ali Khan and ex-wife Amrita Singh along with a young Soha Ali Khan. In the picture, Saif is seen making a confused face, Amrita is all smiles for the camera and little Soha looks unrecognisable with her shoulder-length hair and a unibrow.
Check it out!
Now that we are down the memory lane, here's Saif and Amrita's story of a love that was.
The two first met during Rahul Rawail’s film, with which Saif was going to make his debut in Bollywood. The two had to pose together for a photoshoot and Saif put his arms around Amrita. She thought it was pretty gutsy of him to do so in the very first meeting. And the two felt an instant connection.
Next, Saif went over to Amrita's place for dinner and ended up staying there for two days straight. After non-stop phone calls from the directors and producers of the film, he had to finally leave to resume shooting. By this time, both of them had confessed their love for each. So, Amrita asked Saif to take her car to the set. She wanted him to come back to her, if not for her, at least to return the car.
Despite their age difference, the two decided to tie the knot. However, their love didn't last too long. Saif's alleged affairs with other actresses and models put a dent in their marriage and the two got divorced. At this point, Saif and Amrita had had both their children - Sara Alia Khan and Ibrahim Ali Khan.
Saif openly admitted to dating Rosa, an Italian dancer. In an interview, he spoke about what was different about dating Rosa and being with Amrita, "Unlike Amrita, Rosa is not from the film industry. Sure, I liked being put in touch with the industry’s bigwigs by Amrita, having dinner with Karan Johar, etc. But in hindsight, I’d have been better off finding my way through the industry. There’s a theory that I became whatever I am because Amrita took me by my finger and led me through it all. She has played a big hand in my growth as an actor and human being. But it’s a blessing to be with a woman who has nothing to do with movies. Even Shah Rukh’s wife Gauri keeps out of his career. I’d like to keep it that way."
And, now, he's happily married to Kareena Kapoor Khan and has a two-year-old son with her named Taimur Ali Khan.
