Taimur Ali Khan will follow the family tradition of all children from the Pataudi clan attending boarding school in England.
But not any time soon.
A source close to the family reveals, “It’s always been like that in the Pataudi family. Saif’s father Mansur Ali Khan Pataudi studied in England, then his son Saif and daughters Sabaa and Soha. Saif’s children Sara and Ebrahim from his first marriage(with Amrita Singh) also went to boarding school.And eventually it will be Taimur’s turn.”
There were media reports that Taimur would “soon” be sent to boarding school. This is untrue. Taimur won’t be sent away until he is 12 or 13 years old.
However, and here is the catch, Taimur’s doting father is not too keen to send away his son.
Says a source close to the family, “Not Saif, but it is Kareena who is adamant that Taimur be sent off after a certain age .She feels the constant media attention is not right for Taimur.And she is right. Saif isn’t so sure he wants his youngest born to spend his growing years away from his family. Saif hardly got time to spend with his first two children Sara and Ebrahim. He doesn’t want to miss out on Taimur’s growing up years either.”
