While talking to Mumbai Mirror, Saif wished he could have stayed at the Pataudi palace a little longer and spoke about Taimur developing country interests. He was quoted as saying, "It was fun watching Taimur play hide-and-seek among the trees, and feed squirrels biscuits. He's developing country interests and is no longer scared of bugs, lizards, or the black ants, that he now watches run up his arm with wonder." On the question of if he can see himself settling there with his family, he said that he can and that it would be a good life. He expressed his desires to garden, swim, cook, read and be around his family, while they can also have friends over once in a while.
In his words, "It's what I have been doing for the longest time. And we have an apartment in Mumbai, so we can fly out there for work. We just need some good schools around." Meanwhile, Saif also cleared the rumours of him purchasing Pataudi Palace from the Neemrana Group of Hotels, to whom his father had reportedly given the property on lease for Rs 800 crores. He said that it was highly exaggerated and that there was a miscommunication. (Also Read: Father-To-Be, RJ Anmol Reveals If His And Amrita Rao's First-Child-To-Be Was Planned Or A Surprise)
Saif Ali Khan stated that after his father's demise, he wanted the Pataudi Palace back in the family as he was very attached to the palace. He said, "So when I was offered the chance, I wrapped up the lease that was left, paid up and took possession of our home again. It was a fair financial arrangement and contrary to reports, I did not have to buy it back because I already owned it."
Talking about other properties of the Khan-Kapoor family, Saif and Kareena own a house in the plush building named Fortune Heights in Bandra, Mumbai, where they currently reside. The flat is estimated to cost around Rs 4.2 crore. Saif and Kareena had also bought a new house, a slightly larger apartment, which is located opposite to where they're currently staying and might put this house on rent.
