Sara Ali Khan has opened up about her parents Saif Ali Khan and Amrita Singh’s divorce. The actor said that Amrita and Saif weren’t happy together and the best decision at the point was to part ways.
The former couple married in 1991. They welcomed a daughter, Sara Ali Khan, and a son, Ibrahim Ali Khan. However, in 2004, Saif Ali Khan and Amrita Singh separated. Almost a decade later, Saif married Kareena Kapoor Khan. The couple share two sons – Taimur Ali Khan and Jeh Ali Khan.
Sara opened up about her parents’ separation in an appearance on Voot Original Feet Up With The Stars, Season 3. Sara said, “It’s very simple. If you see there are two options. Either live 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. I live with my mother. She’s my best friend means everything to me. I have a father too who is always available on the phone, and I can meet him whenever I want. I don’t think they were happy together ultimately, so I guess to separate was the best decision to make at the time. ”
“They both are happy in their own world and lives and because of that, their kids are happy too. All of us are much happier than we would have been for sure. So, everything happens for a reason,” she added.
Although the separation, Sara has been on good terms with her father. They often come together on special occasions, such as Eid and birthdays. They also appeared together on an episode of Koffee With Karan. Sara is also has a good relationship with Karee
