Sharmila Tagore and Tiger Pataudi, the Nawab of Pataudi, shared a love story that began in 1965 when they were introduced by a mutual friend. Despite Sharmila’s fame in the film industry, Tiger knew little about her career and had not watched any of her movies. Nevertheless, he was instantly captivated by her charm. Soha Ali Khan, in an interview with Lallantop, revealed the unique way her father attempted to win Sharmila’s heart.

Soha shared that the couple first met at a film party, and while Tiger was enamored by Sharmila, she initially showed little response to his advances. In an unconventional move to elicit a reaction from her, Tiger sent seven refrigerators to Sharmila’s home. Soha explained, “Amma then rang him asking ‘What is happening?’ So, this is how it started.”

This delightful revelation adds a unique touch to the love story of Sharmila Tagore and Tiger Pataudi, showcasing the Nawab’s inventive approach to winning the heart of the Bengali beauty.
