The past year has been a rather tumultuous year for Tagore. She lost her husband, former Indian cricket captain Mansoor Ali Khan, her famous co-star Rajesh Khanna, and Yash Choprha (the director who gave her two powerful roles in Waqt and Daag). Yet, her son Saif Ali Khan’s marriage to the Bollywood A-lister Kareena Kapoor was a joyous occasion for her.

And now the granddaughter of a Nobel Laureate will hopefully grace the corridors of the parliament in the same style that she graced the silver screen!
