Taimur Ali Khan will follow the family tradition of the Pataudi clan by attending boarding school in England, although, 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 also studied there. Saif’s children Sara and Ibrahim 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, here is the catch, Taimur’s doting father is not too keen to send away his son. Says a source close to the family, “It’s not Saif but Kareena who is adamant that Taimur be sent off after a certain age. She feels the constant media attention is not right for Taimur. Saif isn’t so sure if he wants his youngest born to spend his growing years away from his family. He hardly got time to spend with his first two children Sara and Ibrahim. He doesn’t want to miss out on Taimur’s growing up years either.”
