Saif Was The Only Person Who Was Patient With Me
In 1999, in their candid interview with Simi Garewal Amrita had confessed, "I could never imagine myself being married to a man younger than me. Saif was the only person who I had met in my life who was patient with me. That meant a lot to me."
To Which Saif Had said..
"I strongly felt that you don't meet people very often who on every chemical level do something right for you. I don't think I am going to find this again, so I might as well hang on to it."
Saif Ali Khan and Amrita Singh were married for 13 years. The couple divorced in 2004. Many believe it was Saif's infidelity which fuelled this. However, Saif maintained they were no longer in love.
