Recently in London, the Indian Journalists Association hosted a memorial lunch for the late Nawab of Pataudi and his entire family was there – son Saif, daughters Soha and Sabah, wife Sharmila and cousin Shahryar Mohammad Khan. Among them was Saif’s girlfriend, Kareena Kapoor, as well. However, Soha’s boyfriend, Kunal Khemu, was missing even though he was on the list of invitees!
While some sources have it that Kunal’s absence is because the Pataudi matriarch has not warmed up to him as much as she’s on good terms with Kareena, other’s say that Saif didn’t formally invite Kunal.
However, his friends maintain that he’s basically very shy and reserved and prefers to remain in the background so that it doesn’t look like he’s tagging along with the Pataudi clan! Fair enough :)
