According to the report, the cost of Pataudi Palace is around Rs 800 crore.
Saif Ali Khan’s one-year-old interview is going viral in the media, where he says that the property he inherited had to be bought from his film earnings as well. According to Saif, after the death of Pataudi’s father Mansur Ali Khan Pataudi, Pataudi Palace was leased to Nimar Hotels, which operated as a luxury property until 2014.
According to the website Architectural Digest, Saif Ali Khan’s Pataudi Palace is spread over 10 acres. It has 150 rooms. It has 7 dressing rooms, 7 bedrooms and 7 billiard rooms.
In a conversation about Mid Day, Saif said- When my father died, Pataudi Palace rented Nemrana hotels. Aman (Nath) and Francis (Vacarg) run the hotel. Francis died. They asked me if I wanted the palace back. I said yes I want back. He said in a conference – OK. You have to pay a lot of money for this.
‘I have not inherited anything’
Saif says- I have redeemed the palace by earning continuously. The fact is that the house I should have inherited from the film I also got from the earnings. You cannot stay away from the past. Especially not from his family at all. I grew up like this, but nothing was found in my inheritance.
‘I was born and raised in Bombay’
In this interview, Saif sheds light on his past and says- I was born and raised in Bombay (Mumbai). My father lived with his mother (Sharmila Tagore) in a flat on Carmichael Road. I went to the cathedral, spent time in the Bombay gym.
There was a world that influenced my father more than movies. He had just finished his cricket career. I was 4-5 years old during his last Test series.
My mother says that she (father) is fulfilling her responsibilities. His mother looked after Bhopal and Pataudi. When he was old, we moved to Delhi to live with him, where he had a very nice and big house, which the Government of India gave him for life due to land, property and other kind of settlement.
