Saif Ali Khan was born 16 August 1970 in New Delhi, India. He is the son of Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi, a former captain of the Indian cricket team and the titular Nawab of Pataudi from 1952 until 1971, when the titles, privileges, and remuneration (privy purses) were abolished by the Government of India. Khan is of Bengali Tagore ancestry on his mother's side, His paternal grandfather, Iftikhar Ali Khan Pataudi, the eighth Nawab of Pataudi, played cricket for England and after 1947 for India as the captain of the team. His paternal grandmother was Sajida Sultan, Begum of Bhopal and his great-uncle was Pakistani general Sher Ali Khan Pataudi. Khan's mother is Sharmila Tagore, a film actress who converted to Islam before marriage to his father, and the head of the Indian film censorship board. Khan has two sisters, one of which is actress Soha Ali Khan.
Khan studied at the Lawrence School, Sanawar Lockers Park School, Hertfordshire, UK, and finished high school at Winchester College, UK.
Khan married actress Amrita Singh in October 1991. After thirteen years of marriage and two children (daughter Sara Ali Khan born September 1993, and son Ibrahim Ali Khan born March 2001), the couple divorced in 2004. The children live with their mother.
He then dated Rosa Catalano, a Swiss model born in Italy, whom he met in Kenya, for three years. Catalano later revealed that he had not told her about his earlier marriage and children, and that she learnt about them only after she came to India. They were later said to be considering marriage, but then broke off.
On 18 February 2007, Khan was hospitalised at Lilavati Hospital, Mumbai due to chest pain while rehearsing for his performance at the Stardust Awards, to be held that night. After hospitalisation, he stated he would quit smoking.
Khan had been dating actress Kareena Kapoor since October 2007. In October 2009 he publicly spoke of his relationship with Kapoor and the prospect of marriage stating, that in his opinion people said that marriage does not affect one's career but in fact it does and that today the whole definition of marriage has changed. He said, that he and Kareena were so well connected, so close that marriage is just a stamp of validation for the society. Saif and Kareena got married in court on 16 October 2012.
On September 22, 2011 Khan's father Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi passed away. To please the sentiments of some residents of the village of Pataudi, a mock "pagri" ceremony was held which symbolically installed him as the 10th "Nawab of Pataudi;" the title has had no legal, titular, or official status since 1971. The 'pagri' ceremony was attended by the incumbent Chief Minister of Haryana.
