Saif becomes tenth Nawab of Pataudi

entertainment Updated: Oct 31, 2011 21:35 IST

Saif Ali Khan who's also known as Chhote Nawab has been crowned the tenth Nawab of Pataudi. However, since the title was abolished years back, Saif makes it clear the ceremony is only to keep the sentiments of the villagers.

The ceremony saw people of nearby villages thronging the Pataudi palace. The ceremony was attended by Saif’s mother Sharmila Tagore and sisters Soha Ali Khan and Sabah Ali Khan. The Chief Minister of Haryana, Bhupinder Singh Hooda also graced the event.

Son of former cricketer Mansur Ali Khan, Saif inherited the title after his father’s demise in September this year.

Heads of 52 villages organized a symbolic coronation ceremony, in which, a headgear (turban) was placed on Saif`s head as a mark of respect.
