Unlike the other members of the Pataudi family, Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi and Sharmila Tagore’s daughter, Saba Ali Khan had chosen a life away from the glamour world. But she is quite active on social media and just like her sister, Soha Ali Khan and bhabhi, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Saba too enjoys a huge fandom, with more than 39k followers. It is through Saba’s social media handle, we get glimpses of some unseen pictures of the Pataudi clan. Be it her admiration for her bhabhi, Kareena Kapoor Khan or her love for her siblings, Saif Ali Khan and Soha Ali Khan, Saba never skips a chance to treat us with beautiful memories of her family.
Saba Ali Khan is a jewellery designer by profession and the mutawalli (Chief Trustee) of the Auqaf-e-Shahi (Royal Trust) established by the princely state of Bhopal as a royal charitable endowment. Saba loves sharing unseen pictures of her family and her IG handle is a visual treat. A few months ago, Saba had taken to her IG handle and had shared some childhood pictures with her siblings, Saif Ali Khan and Soha Ali Khan with their mother, Sharmila Tagore.
On April 18, 2021, Saba Ali Khan took to her IG handle and shared a glimpse of the pictures of her favourite people. We could see her posing with her mother, Sharmila Tagore, bhabhi, Kareena Kapoor Khan, sister, Soha Ali Khan, and brother-in-law, Kunal Kemmu. We also got a glimpse of an unseen solo picture of Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi. Saba captioned her post as “Pictures... Make me happy!! Which do I frame… next?” A few minutes back, Saba revealed which picture, she finally decided to get framed and it is none other than the solo picture of her father, Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi and the other one with her bhabhi, Kareena Kapoor Khan. Sharing a glimpse of the framed pictures, Saba wrote, “The BEST choices… The popular choices. Of course I'll frame them ALL.... Soon. Ma n me ...done.” Saba also shared an adorable throwback picture on her IG stories, where she was seen twinning with her mommy, Sharmila Tagore and sister, Soha Ali khan.
We have often seen how Saba dotes on her siblings and a perfect example of the same was seen on April 17, 2021. Saba had shared two adorable unseen pictures with her siblings. In the first frame, Saba was seen sitting beside her mother, Sharmila Tagore, who was seen carrying Soha Ali Khan in her arms. Along with the framed picture, Saba had written, “Siblings… Forever… Beautiful journey... childhood memories.” The second frame shared by Saba had the Pataudi siblings posing together for an adorable picture. In the monochrome picture, Saif, Soha and Saba had looked cute, while posing for the picture. Saba had captioned the picture as “Siblings… We have each other’s back... Hmmmm.... Ok... I Have their back! Aren't they lucky... to have a sister called Saba ...?!!”
After the death of her father, Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi in 2011, Saba was named as the custodian of the royal trust of Bhopal. She, as mutawalli of Aukaf-e-Shahi Trust, takes care of the properties in Bhopal and Saudi Arabia, worth Rs. 1000 crore. While Saif had taken the Nawab of Pataudi title after their father’s death, Saba had chosen to be the Chief Trustee of the Bhopal Trust. She is the first woman in the country to be the head of Auqaf-e-Shahi since the end of the princely era. Other than this, she also looks after her mother’s Rs. 2700 crore worth property.
In 2009, at the launch of the jewellery store, Opulence, for which Saba Ali Khan had designed a collection that Soha Ali Khan had showcased on the ramp, the Pataudi sisters had spoken about their family in an interview with HT City. Though Saif Ali Khan and Soha get along really well as they stay in the same city, Saba too, has her special moments with him. Saba had said, “We are very proud of our brother, he has accomplished a lot in his life.” However, Soha had described Saif as “adventurous… giving our parents headaches.”
