Saif Ali Khan may have described his divorce as the worst thing ever with his first wife Amrita Singh as impacted his children, daughter Sara Ali Khan and son Ibrahim Ali Khan, now the young actress herself takes it in her stride and believes it was a good decision.
Saif and Amrita got divorced in 2004 and the news of their divorce was spread like a wildfire, but Sara recently said that it “was the best decision to make at the time.”
In an upcoming episode of Feet Up With The Stars Season 3 on Voot Originals, Sara spoke about how living separately gave Amrita and Saif more fulfilling lives. “It’s very simple. If you see there are two options. Either lives in the same house where no one is happy or live separately, where everyone is happy with their own lives, and you also get a different kind of love and warmth every time you meet,” Sara said.
Sara shared that she lives with her mother, who is also her ‘best friend’ and means everything to her. Adding to this, she said, “I have a father too who is always available on the phone, and I can meet him whenever I want.”
Sara often shares family pictures with her father Saif, brother Ibrahim Ali Khan and half-siblings Taimur Ali Khan and Jeh. Saif is now married to actress Kareena Kapoor and Sara has often spoken very fondly of her.
Wondering about what made her parents decide to separate, Sara said, “I don’t think they were happy together ultimately, so I guess to separate was the best decision to make at the time. All of us are much happier than we would have been for sure. So, everything happens for a reason.”
Earlier, in 2019 in an interview, Saif had opened up about the divorce and said, “It’s the worst thing in the world. That is something I still feel could have been different. I think I will never really be okay with that, I mean one needs to understand that certain things can’t be out, I mean I try my best to make peace with that and with myself saying that I was 20 and I was quite young and so many changes. I mean you feel bad but it is a strange thing, sometimes you can’t really imagine… parent is a strange thing, you can’t really imagine of them as together and individuals, as two units as well. You don’t like to think of them making out, you don’t think of them really joined. So it’s like a thing, everyone can be okay with a modern relationship also.”
On the work front, Sara will next be seen in Atrangi Re co-starring Akshay Kumar and Dhanush, helmed by Aanand L Rai.
