Bollywood star, Saif Ali Khan belongs to a royal family. Saif is the tenth Nawab of Pataudi, after his father Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi aka Tiger Pataudi. The actor’s ancestral property in Bhopal is worth a whopping Rs 5000 crore. However, we bet you didn’t know that Saif Ali Khan may not be able to give a penny from the property to his three sons – Ibrahim Ali Khan, Taimur Ali Khan, and Jehangir Ali Khan. Puzzled? Do you know why? According to an entertainment portal’s report, ‘Apparently, all of the properties and other relevant assets belonging to the House of Pataudi fall under the controversial Enemy Disputes Act of the India Government and as such, nobody can claim to be an heir of any of such property or assets that come under the purview of said act. If a person or persons wish to contend the Enemy Disputes Act and lay claim to any property or assets they feel are rightfully theirs, 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.’
In addition to this, the report further goes on to suggest that the actor’s great-grandfather, Hamidullah Khan, the Nawab under the British regime, never made a will for all his properties, owing to which there could be some contention within the family, particularly from members descending from Saif Ali Khan’s grand-aunt in Pakistan. Considering all these legalities, it’s probably safe to assume that the chances of Saif Ali Khan passing down his property and assets in Haryana and Bhopal to his kids are quite slim.
