Among many other things, Amrita Singh was almost twelve years older than the ‘Chota Nawab’ of Pataudi.
While mom Sharmila and dad Mansoor made their feelings quite clear, the young ‘hero’ was in no mood to relent, leading to the secret Saif Ali Khan Amrita Singh marriage, in October of 1991.
If you think that after the curious case of the Saif-Amrita Singh marriage story and tragic divorce, things seemed to get better for Amrita, then you’re mistaken, at least initially.
