Saif Ali Khan Opens On Settling Down At The Pataudi Palace With Kareena, Taimur, And New Baby, “We Must Need Good Schools Around”
Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan are an inseparable couple. They were blessed with Taimur a few years back and are now expecting their second child. With their happy family, they have plans to settle down away from the city buzz. Recently, Saif, Kareena, and Taimur went to the Pataudi Palace to spend some good quality time during the lockdown. Now, they’re back and it seems Saif is really keen on settling down in the country with his family.
In a recent interview to Mumbai Mirror, Saif Ali Khan opened up about his stay at the Pataudi Palace and spoke about Taimur developing country interests. Saif told Mumbai Mirror, “It was fun watching Taimur play hide-and-seek among the trees, and feed squirrels biscuits. He’s developing country interests and is no longer scared of bugs, lizards, or the black ants, that he now watches run up his arm with wonder.”
When Saif was asked if he can see himself settling there with Kareena Kapoor Khan, Taimur and the new baby who is on the way, he said that he can, and that it would be a good life. He said he would garden, swim, cook, read and be around his family, while they can also have friends over once in a while. “It’s what I have been doing for the longest time. And we have an apartment in Mumbai, so we can fly out there for work. We just need some good schools around,” he said.
Meanwhile, Saif also spoke about reports of him purchasing Pataudi Palace from the Neemrana Group of Hotels, to whom his father had reportedly given the property on lease for 800 crores. Saif said that it was highly exaggerated and that there was a miscommunication. Saif Ali Khan said that after his father’s demise, he wanted the Pataudi Palace back in the family as he was very attached to the palace. “So, when I was offered the chance, I wrapped up the lease that was left, paid up and took possession of our home again. It was a fair financial arrangement and contrary to reports, I did not have to buy it back because I already owned it,” he said.
