Step inside Saif Ali Khan-Kareena Kapoor’s Rs 800 crore Pataudi Palace
Saif Ali Khan, Kareena Kapoor’s Pataudi Palace is a stunning, luxurious home that is perfect for a history lesson and also a birthday party of their son Taimur.
Saif Ali Khan is perhaps the only actor with a palace to his name. Saif had to earn back the Pataudi Palace after it was rented to a hotel chain. The actor refurbished the palace after the death of his father, cricketer Mansur Ali Khan Pataudi.
The estate is also known as Ibrahim Kothi and is situated in the town of Pataudi in Haryana’s Gurgaon district. The palace is known for its royal and opulent interiors. There are large, long hallways and tall arches for that added look of luxury. Painting and artwork adorns all walls and a luxe green garden surround the palace.
It is spread across 10 acres and has 150 rooms, including seven dressing rooms, seven bedrooms, seven billiard rooms, as well as palatial drawing rooms and dining rooms. The property is valued at a whopping Rs 800 crores.
Built in the style of Imperial Delhi’s colonial mansions, Pataudi Palace was designed by Robert Tor Russell in the early 1900’s. Robert was assisted by Austrian architect Karl Molt von Heinz. However, Saif upon repossessing the palace wanted it to have a sense of comfort and understated style rather than excessive luxury, so he got the family home refurbished by interior designer Darshini Shah.
