Earned, Didn’t Inherit: Saif Ali Khan Reveals How He Brought Back His Own Pataudi Palace

Saif Ali Khan is not only Bollywood royalty, but also blue blooded for real.

The Jawaani Jaanemann actor is the son of the late Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi and yesteryear actor, Sharmila Tagore.

In an interview, he shared that he had to earn back his ancestral palace in Pataudi after it was rented out to a hotel chain after his father’s passing.

“People have a certain fixed notion. For that matter, even (with) Pataudi (palace), when my father (Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi) died, it got rented to Neemrana Hotels. Aman (Nath) and Francis (Wacziarg) used to run (the hotel). Francis passed away. He’d said that if I wanted (the palace) back, I could let him know. I said that I want it back. They held a conference, and said, okay, you have to give us lots of money,” Saif said.

The Bollywood star also added that he had to earn back something he was meant to inherit, saying, “The house I’m supposed to have inherited has been earned back through money from films. You can’t live off the past. At least we can’t in our family, because there was nothing. There is history, culture, beautiful photographs; and, of course, some land. It has been a privileged upbringing. But there’s been no inheritance.”

The Pataudi Palace is spread across 10 acres with 150 rooms that includes seven dressing rooms, seven bedrooms, seven billiard rooms, along with palatial drawing rooms and dining rooms. The property is said to be valued at a staggering Rs 800 crores.

For those who are not aware, critically acclaimed films such as Julia Roberts starring ‘Eat Pray Love’, ‘Mangal Pandey’, ‘Veer Zara’, ‘Gandhi: My father’ and ‘Mere Brother ki Dulhan’ have been shot at this palace.
