Sharmila Tagore and late Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi's lesser-known daughter, Saba Ali Khan had always preferred to stay away from the limelight. Unlike her star siblings, Saif Ali Khan and Soha Ali Khan, Saba chose a different path for her career and made a name for herself. However, for the past few months, Saba has been making headlines for her social media posts. Saba, who has been quite active on social media, is sharing glimpses of her personal life and her Instagram feed is a treasure of Pataudis' family moments.
Saba Ali Khan loves sharing unseen glimpses of the Pataudi family and her admiration for her bhabhi, Kareena Kapoor Khan is quite evident through her posts. Saba often gives glimpses of the bond she shares with Kareena. Sometime back, taking to her IG stories, Saba had posted a glimpse of the note Kareena had written to her before she got married to Saif Ali Khan. In the note, Kareena had written, "Dear Saba, Will be great knowing you… Love 'n' luck always Kareena." Saba had written, "#2011 #KareenaKapoorKhan #FlashbackFriday" atop it.
Saba Ali Khan once again posted a throwback memory with her bhabhi, Kareena Kapoor Khan from Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi's 70th birthday celebration. Sharing a picture with her 'diva' bhabhi, Saba wrote, "Divas...yes? #tbt #thosewerethedays #kareenakapoorkhan #sabaalikhan #familylove #alwaysandforever." On her post, a netizen commented, "Kareena kbhi aapka comments ka reply tak nahi karti or aap uski pictures post karti rehti hein." Schooling the troll in her calmest manner, Saba replied, "@almirah_rj bec I love my bhabi. Be True to yourself."
On similar lines, another netizen commented on Saba Ali Khan's post, "Aap apni family k liye post krti rehti h...but koi bhi family member ek reply tak ni krta...yeh door ki mohabbat kyu..??? @sabapataudi." On the other hand, some netizens lauded Saba for her reply, "@sabapataudi best reply", "@sabapataudi, what a reply.? This is one of the rare quality we are lacking.. Appreciated" and "You don't do things to proof others you do for your inner peace and happiness that's what I like about you."
In March 2021, Saba Ali Khan had posted a few more glimpses from Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi's 70th birthday celebration. Posting a picture with Kunal Kemmu, Saba had written, "FUN Photoshoot...! Abba 70th celebration! Photographs… FAMILY moments ...Friends ...everyone happy together and stress free!" In another post, Saba had posted a picture of Saif and Kareena, and one of Sharmila Tagore with Bebo. Saba had captioned the post as "FOTOooooooS ....by ME!!! (#Photos) #throwback Abba's 70th celebration... continued... Well...I'm better behind the lens, mostly!!! Pref. Photographer...at heart. Capturing moments..candid photos..my forte." Everyone had opted for black for the celebrations.
When Soha Ali Khan had turned author and released her first book, The Perils of Being Moderately Famous, she had shared the rare, rather the 'only' picture of the entire Pataudi family with Kareena Kapoor Khan and Kunal Kemmu in one frame. Saba Ali Khan had posted the same picture and revealed that it was taken at Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi's 70th birthday bash. Saba had captioned the family picture as "FAMiLY MATTERS! Abba's 70th birthday... Celebration. Together we stand. Tall. #MahshAllah."
For the unversed, Saba is a jewellery designer by profession and a mutawalli (Chief Trustee) of the Auqaf-e-Shahi (Royal Trust).
