In India, many times Bollywood celebs are treated like royalty by their fans but in some cases, it is not even an exaggeration. There are a few Bollywood stars who have the blue blood in them and are a part of royal families or they are the descendants of the imperial families. The charm of Bollywood is so amazing that it manages to lure people from the nobility as well.
Below, we have compiled a list of some of Bollywood’s very own royalties, and where their roots hail from:
1) Saif Ali Khan and Sara Ali Khan
Saif Ali Khan’s father, late Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi was the last Nawab of Pataudi. Although the title got abolished by the government of India in 1971, even today Saif is called the Nawab, from a true royal bloodline. And thus, Saif’s daughter Sara also becomes a part of the royal heritage.
2) Sonal Chauhan
The Jannat actress might be MIA in Bollywood right now, but not many know that she belongs to the conservative and traditional royal Rajput family. Her parents are from Mainpuri, Uttar Pradesh and she belongs to a royal Chauhan family.
