Saif Ali Khan has been working in the industry for over two decades. It is known that the actor comes from legacy since he is the son of veteran actress Sharmila Tagore and late cricketer Tiger Pataudi aka Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi. And inheritance wise, he is a Pataudi and is called Nawab.

Saif Ali Khan recently said that he can’t argue against the narratives whether they are true or not. He said that people have a certain fixed notion about it. He revealed that after his father passed away, Pataudi Palace got rented to Neemrana Hotels and Aman Nath and Francis Wacziarg used to run the hotel. Francis had told Saif if he wanted to get back the palace, he should let him know. And he did the same. But, the condition was to pay a lot of money.

Saif revealed that he earned subsequently and got back the Pataudi Palace, which he was supposed to have inherited, through the films he did. He said that one can’t live in the past. At least, they could not since there was nothing besides some land, history, culture, beautiful photographs; and, of course, some land. The actor admitted that it has been a privileged upbringing but no inheritance.

On the work front, Saif Ali Khan will be next seen in Jawaani Jaaneman and Tanhaji – The Unsung Warrior.

While there is a conjecture that Saif Ali Khan’s son Ibrahim Khan could well follow his grandmother Sharmila Tagore, mother Amrita Singh, father Saif, aunt Soha and sister Sara into Bollywood, it seems that the lad is working hard to get into cricket.

“Cricket is not just a hobby for Ibrahim. He is passionately following it. Saif and Amrita have both given him the go ahead to try for a while and see if he has it in him to make it at the highest level. Ibrahim’s grandfather Mansur Ali Khan Pataudi was also the captain of the Indian cricket team in 40 out of the 46 test matches that he played and Ibrahim is majorly inspired by him. He will give cricket a shot first. God forbid if he doesn’t do well, he can always fall back on films because he is also blessed with his parents’ genes,” says a source.

Ibrahim has been practicing cricket regularly and has had his father also have a look at his sporting endeavours.

The actor, who has now made his television debut as a narrator on the show ‘Kahan Hum Kahan Tum’, tells BT that spending time with family is a luxury for actors.

He says, “When I come home after work and find Taimur sleeping, I feel bad. We shoot long hours, but if I haven’t packed up even after 8 pm, I feel uncomfortable because it means taking away time from my son. In my growing-up years, my parents taught me about the importance of respecting family space. My father (Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi) was a cricketer and mother (Sharmila Tagore) is an actress, and they both had hectic schedules. However, we learnt that it is important to talk about other things, too, at home and that’s how life becomes beautiful.”
