Latest update from Delhi brings the unfortunate news of the sad demise
of cricketing legend, affectionately called 'Tiger', Mansoor Ali Khan
As was recently reported, having completed his 70 year
mark earlier in January this year, Nawab Pataudi was keeping
consistently unwell, and was hospitalized for lung infection second time
this month, few days ago.
Children and actors Saif Ali Khan
Soha Ali Khan, the lesser known sibling Saba, and wife and yesteryear
cinema legend Sharmila Tagore are heard to have been by his side
constantly in these last days. Only a day after Saif's beau Kareena's
31st birthday - which was a quiet affair keeping his condition and the
gravity of situation - Pataudi Sr. departed for heavenly abode earlier
today, the 22nd of September. The ultimate cause of death is being cited
as the inability to maintain the oxygen levels after rapid
deterioration in his condition since morning.
