The love story of the beautiful and best actress of the 60s, Sharmila Tagore, and Tiger Pataudi, also known as Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi, also made headlines. The two first met in 1965 through a mutual friend. At the same time, Sharmila Tagore shared an interesting anecdote from that time in one of her interviews.

Sharmila had said that Pataudi once recited a poem to her to impress her. Sharmila Tagore also narrated the same poem to her friend and Bollywood actor Feroz Khan. But after hearing the poem, Feroz Khan gave very different expressions and said, ‘These lines belong to Ghalib.’

At the same time, when Sharmila Tagore was asked in the interview: ‘What did you like about Tiger Pataudi to marry him? Sharmila said about this that she liked Pataudi’s sense of humor. He said that he knew that moment would never come when Mansoor would intentionally hurt his heart.

Apart from this, about her first meeting with Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi, Sharmila said: ‘We met in the year 1965 at a party. We talk there. Then he spoke to me with a British accent and no one laughed at the jokes he used to make. Because nobody could understand that joke. He himself used to laugh at his own joke. I loved all of this. It was then that I realized that this person would never intentionally hurt my heart. I had faith in him. He truly was a true gentleman.’
