Actor Saif Ali Khan, son of the last Nawab, Mansoor Ali Khan, is married to actress Kareena Kapoor, and Soha Ali Khan, daughter of the last Nawab is married to actor, Kunal Khemu… This talented actor is also the 10th Nawab of the former princely state of Pataudi.

The Pataudi Palace, also called Ibrahim Kothi, is a former palace of the Nawabs of Pataudi, in Haryana, India.
At the request of Iftikhar Ali Khan (1910–52), the 8th Nawab of Pataudi, the building was designed in the style of the colonial mansions of Imperial Delhi by Robert Tor Russell (1888–1972) assisted by the Austrian architect Karl Molt von Heinz. Many Hindi movies have also been shot here.
Formerly a Neemrana Hotel, it was repossessed by actor Saif Ali Khan, son of the last Nawab, in 2014 and as of July 2015 remained closed for refurbishment.
It is located 26 km (16.2 mi) from Gurgaon, at the foot hills of the Aravali hills. Pataudi tehsil is part of Ahirwal Region. Pataudi was the seat of Pataudi State which was ruled by the Nawabs of Pataudi. The 8th Nawab, Iftikhar Ali Khan Pataudi, played cricket for both England and India and captained the latter.
Saif Ali Khan, the current Nawab of Pataudi, has a huge ancestral property in his name in Pataudi. It is said that the palace and some of the other family properties collectively are reportedly valued around Rs 750 Cr.
Sources say, “Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi has left the lion’s share of his assets to his only son Saif. His daughters Saba and Soha are also reportedly mentioned in the will and are beneficiaries.”
After Mansoor Ali’s death in 2011, Saif was declared the tenth Nawab of Pataudi by villagers of the state, as per norms. The title was long abolished by the government.
Saif’s paternal grandfather Iftikhar Ali Khan Pataudi was the eighth Nawab of Pataudi. As a cricketer, Iftikhar played for England and was captain of the Indian national cricket team. Saif’s grandmother Sajida Sultan was the Begum of Bhopal and the second daughter of Hamidullah Khan, the last ruling Nawab of Bhopal.
Mansoor Ali was a famous cricketer and lead the Indian cricket team from 1962 to 1970. He was the ninth Nawab until 1971 when India abolished the titles through the 26th Amendment to the Constitution of India.
