Saif Ali Khan anointed the 10th Nawab of Pataudi
Saif Ali Khan was anointed the 10th Nawab of Pataudi at a ceremony in his ancestral palace at Pataudi, Gurgaon, on Monday, at the end of 40 days of mourning for Mansoor Ali Khan who died on September 22.
The Bollywood actor was ceremonially crowned the Nawab at the coronation ceremony in the presence of his family members and representatives of 52 villages.
Titles like Nawab are no more recognized by the government after princely states were abolished in 1971. However, Saif is now authorized to manage his father’s estate, ancestral home and the trust, which runs several charitable institutions and an eye hospital.
