Versatile Bollywood actor Saif Ali Khan belongs to a royal family. He is the Nawab of the Pataudi kingdom. His father, Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi, was not only a famous Indian cricketer but also a Nawab. As per reports, Saif Ali Khan has a combined asset of Rs 5000 crore. Including the Pataudi Palace in Haryana and his other ancestral property in Bhopal.
But do you know that the actor Saif Ali Khan might not be able to hand over a single penny from his 5000-crore property to his kids? Not one of his four kids, Sara, Ibrahim, Taimur, or Jehangir Ali Khan, would be handover their ancestral property. Yes, you have read that right!
Actor Saif Ali Khan and his property:
As per the reports in a news portal. All of the relevant assets and properties belonging to the ‘House of Pataudi’ falls under the controversial Enemy Disputes Act of the Indian Government. This means nobody can claim to be an heir of any of such property or assets that come under the purview of said act.
The report further adds if they want to contend the dispute and claim to any property. Then they’ll have to move to the High Court, failing which, the next option leads them to the Supreme Court and finally, the President of India.
Presumably, Saif Ali Khan’s great grandfather Hamidullah Khan, the Nawab under the British regime, never made a will due to which there could be some contention within the family, particularly from members descending from Saif’s grand-aunt in Pakistan.
