Soha Ali Khan (born Soha Ali Khan Pataudi on 4 October 1978) is a Bollywood actress best known for her role of Sonia in Rang De Basanti (2006) for which she won IIFA Awards for Best Supporting Actress and GIFA Awards for Best Supporting Actress. She is daughter of Mansoor Ali Khan and Sharmila Tagore, a Bengali Indian film actress and a member of Bengal's Tagore family. She is the sister of Saif Ali Khan.
Soha was born into the Muslim royal family of the Nawab of Pataudi. Both her father, Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi, and paternal grandfather, Iftikhar Ali Khan Pataudi, are former captains of the Indian cricket team. Her mother, Sharmila Tagore and her older brother Saif Ali Khan are Bollywood actors while her older sister Saba Ali Khan is a jewellery designer. She is the youngest child for her parents. She attended The British School, New Delhi and studied modern history at Balliol College, Oxford and earned a Masters degree in International Relations from the London School of Economics and Political Science.
Before embarking upon her film career, Soha worked for the Ford Foundation and Citibank. She is involved in a range of activities outside the acting world, including serving on the Advisory Board for a new project of the public entrepreneur group, Res Publica. She has also recently modeled for the spring-summer collection of Globus, an Indian chain of boutiques.
Soha made her acting debut with the Bollywood film Dil Maange More (2004), where she shared credits with Shahid Kapoor, Ayesha Takia and Tulip Joshi. She has since received critical acclaim for her performances in the Bengali film Antar Mahal (2005) and Rang De Basanti (2006). Khoya Khoya Chand earned her critical acclaim though it was not successful at the box office. In 2009, she appeared in 99, which was a critical and commercial success and her performance was acclaimed. Her next release was Tum Mile opposite Emraan Hashmi. Although a box office failure, Soha received positive reviews for her performance. Her upcoming release include Mumbai Cutting. Soha also hosted a show called Godrej Khelo Jeeto Jiyo on Star Plus. Soha appeared in a bikini for the first time in her career, in her film Mr Joe B. Carvalho.
She is a life member of International Film And Television Club of Asian Academy of Film & Television.
In 2010, an alleged MMS of Soha was said to be shot without her knowledge using a concealed camera while she was in a beauty salon. However, it was later said to be a rumor intended to malign the actress.
