Saif Ali Khan’s ex-wife Amrita Singh not happy about Kareena’s pregnancy
Kareena Kapoor is expecting her first child with hubby Saif Ali Khan. While the ‘Ki & Ka’ actress’ mother-in-law yesteryear actress is thrilled at the prospect of being a grand-mom for the third time, Saif’s ex-wife actress Amrita Singh doesn’t seem to be too glad with the news.
After Saif confirmed Kareena’s pregnancy in a statement last week, entertainment portal Bollywood Life got in touch with Amrita to know her views. However, the ‘Betaab’ actress became furious and shouted, “How do you have the guts to call people and ask such random questions? Who are you? Don't call me again!" the website reported.
Saif and Amrita who got married in 1991, have two children – daughter Sara and son Ibrahim. They divorced in 2004, after which Saif went on to marry Kareena in 2012.
Saif’s mom Sharmila Tagore, who now is in London with daughter Soha Ali Khan and son in-law Kunal Khemu, was excited when she learnt about Kareena’s pregnancy. “It will be wonderful to be the grandmother of three cool grandkids,” she was quoted in a DNA report.
Last Saturday, July 2, Saif in a statement said, “My wife and I would like to announce that we are expecting our first child in December. We would like to thank our well-wishers for their blessings and support and also the press for their discretion and patience.”
Rumours about Kareena being pregnant were doing the rounds ever since Kareena was spotted wearing loose clothing at the Mumbai airport when the couple returned from their London vacation recently. Some of her pictures were also flashed across media apparently showing the baby bump. Coinciding with the pregnancy reports, Kareena had also expressed her desire to start a family during an interview with a leading magazine.
Meanwhile, Kareena will go on maternity leave after September. But before that, she will shoot for Rhea Kapoor and Ekta Kapoor’s co-production ‘Veere Di Wedding’ to be directed by Shashanka Ghosh. The movie also stars Sonam Kapoor, Swara Bhaskar and Tiku Talsania’s daughter Shikha Talsania.
