Are you aware that Saif Ali Khan is the first Indian celebrity to have his own palace? Yes, it is correct! Saif and Kareena Kapoor Khan’s residence, also known as the Pataudi Palace or Ibrahim Kothi, is located in the town of Pataudi in Haryana’s Gurgaon district. However, once a group of hotels rented it, the actor had to pay for it out of his own pocket. After his father, cricketer Mansur Ali Khan Pataudi, died, Saif reclaimed the palace and restored it, which is noted for its loyalty.

The Pataudi Palace is noted for its stunning interiors, which feature vast hallways and soaring arches that scream opulence. Paintings and artwork cover the walls of the establishment, and a large lush green garden adds to its charm. There are 150 rooms in total, including seven dressing rooms, seven bedrooms, seven billiard rooms, and not to mention the opulent parlor and dining rooms. The magnificent property, which spans 10 acres of land, is estimated to be worth crores.

In the early 1900s, Robert Tor Russell constructed the palace in the style of colonial houses built in Delhi at the time. At the time, the building was designed by Austrian architect Karl Molt von Heinz. When Saif purchased the property, though, he had interior designer Darshini Shah convert the inside into something more pleasant and attractive. The Pataudi Palace has hosted the filming of many Bollywood and Hollywood films, including Julia Roberts’ Eat, Pray, Love, Mangal Pandey, Veer Zara, Gandhi: My Father, and Mere Brother ki Dulhan.

We frequently see peeks of the gorgeous palace thanks to Saif and Kareena. Every year, they go to meet renowned actress Sharmila Tagore.
