After the demise of their father, it’s Saba Ali Khan (Saif’s sister) and not Nawab Saif, who has been appointed as the custodian of the Pataudi houselhold.
Saba, who chose to stay away from the world of glitz and glamour, was named as the potential “mutawalli” (custodian) way back in 2008 by her father Mansoor Ali Khan ‘Tiger’ Pataudi.
Tiger groomed her to supervise the considerable Waqf properties under his care. The Waqf properties Saba is custodian of extend from Bhopal all the way to Dubai. Saba is the first woman to hold the post.
