Brace yourself, as Bollycurry brings to you ... another CITS! This one features the talented Soha Ali Khan.
Soha was born on October 4, 1978 to a princely family of Pataudi. Her father, Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi, was the former Indian cricket team captain, along with his father, Ifthikar Ali Khan Pataudi. Mansoor is also the current Nawab, meaning provincial governor.

Soha's mother is the acclaimed yesteryear actress, Sharmila Tagore. The gal also has two siblings - her brother Saif Ali Khan is a renown actor, and her sister Saba Ali Khan is a jewelery designer.

Soha went to The British School in New Delhi and then completed her education at Balliol College, Oxford and earned a Masters degree in International Relations from the London School of Economics and Political Science. The multi-talented Soha, among her many pursuits, has modeled for the Spring-Summer collection of Globus - an Indian chain of boutiques.

Her entry into B-Town was with Shahid Kapoor's film Dil Maange More in 2004.
In 2005, she appeared in a Bengali film called Antar Mahal which earned her plenty of recognition for her performance. Then came Rang De Basanti in 2006, quickly followed by Khoya Khoya Chand. 

Her 2009 film 99 became a commercial success, garnering her much attention and acclaim.
Hot off heels of that movie came Tum Mile opposite Emraan Hashmi. Despite the height of the music of the mentioned film, the film itself did not fare too well at the box office.  Apart from these, Soha has also starred in films such as Pyaar Mein Twist, Shaadi No.1, Mumbai Meri Jaan, Dil Kabaddi and many more!

Did you know...
  • Before entering the film industry, she worked at Ford Foundation and Citibank.
  • She served on the Advisory Board for a new project of the public entrepreneur group, Res Publica. 
  • She is also known as Soha Sultana Khan.

Watch out for Soha's next film, Mumbai Cutting and tune in to our next week's CITS where we put the spotlight on her brother, Saif Ali Khan!

    I hadn't realised that she'd gone to Oxford and to LSE. She must be super intelligent!
