Saif is the eldest child of actor Sharmila Tagore and her late husband, cricketer Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi. He has two younger sisters: jewelry designer Saba Ali Khan and actor Soha Ali Khan. Mansoor used the title Nawab of Pataudi until 1971.
In an interview with Asian Age in 2017, Saif had said: “I definitely had a privileged upbringing, but money wise, my parents never gave me pocket money…at least not more than the boy next door. I had a normal upbringing, and there are no nawabs (royals); it’s a tag in movies. my father (Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi) was the last nawab (royal). And even he didn’t consider himself one. The image isn’t because I’m a nawab (royal) but because I enjoy the lifestyle of a movie star. Sometimes you can’t beat your image, and that’s okay. It’s fine. If the image was true, it wouldn’t be for me.”
When asked about a biopic about his mother, Saif said: “My father is a bit more cinematic. His life has certainly had more ups and downs. My mother was a gifted artist, who became a superstar and a superstar for decades. She has had a happy marriage to a sportsman and lived a comfortable life – not much drama there. My father lost an eye as a cricketer. Many things were taken from his father, such as money. My father also had a lot of guts. His Demeanor was very classy. It could be a great biopic about him, but it can’t be a Hindi movie. It has to be a bilingual movie.”
