The Nawab of Pataudi gets closer to a half century.
After a series of disappointing movies, Saif Ali Khan has a lot to cheer for after Sacred Games -- the Netflix original where he plays a loser named Inspector Sartaj Singh -- became an international sensation.
The current Nawab of Pataudi -- one of the most impressive titles in world cricket thanks to his grandfather Iftikhar Ali Khan Pataudi and his father Mansur Ali Khan 'Tiger' Pataudi -- celebrates his 48th birthday just four days after his eldest child Sara Ali Khan turned 23 .
