BHOPAL: Marriage with Kareena Kapoor would not debar Saif Ali Khan from becoming the custodian of the Auqaf-e-Shahi (royal waqf properties), Rs 1,000-crore worth of princely endowments and properties with religious and charitable significance.

Setting speculation at rest, chairman of Madhya Pradesh Waqf board Gufran Azam said, "Assuming that Saba Sultan, the current Mutawalli (custodian) of Auqaf-e-Shahi steps down, Saif can become the Mutawalli." Technically religion of Saif's wife would not matter and is a personal choice, Azam said.

"Nawab Mansoor Ali Khan's daughter Saba Sultan is the custodian and would remain so even after her marriage. The wedding of Saif and Kareena does not affect the Saba's role as the head of royal waqf," he added.

In a recent interview, Sharmila Tagore had reportedly said, "Saif's son Ibrahim is a Muslim as Amrita (Singh) embraced Islam at the time of marriage. Even Ibrahim could become the custodian." However, Azam disproved of that possibility.

Nawab Mansoor Ali Khan's mother Sajida Sultan was the Begum of Bhopal, the second daughter of Nawab Hamidullah Khan, the last ruler of Bhopal. Sajida married Iftekhar Ali Khan, the Nawab of Pataudi in 1939.

As a result, a significant portion of erstwhile royal family property belongs to the Pataudis - which includes the share of Pataudi's two sisters - Saleha Sultan and Sabiha Sultan. The Pataudi family is locked in a feud over properties spread across 2,000 acre around Bhopal.

Saleha's son Faiz Bin Jung in an interview had raised concerns about the future of Auqaf-e-Shahi. "He (Faiz Bin Jung) has nothing to do with the royal family. He is not a Bhopali. He belongs to Hyderabad, where he lives," said Azam. Many close to the Pataudi family were dismayed over Jung's utterances.

Interestingly, the anointed Nawab of Patuadi, Saif Ali Khan has maintained silence over the issues related to the erstwhile royal family of Bhopal or those of the Auqaf-e-Shahi.
