Saturday 18 JuneFormer Indian cricket captain Mansur Ali Khan Pataudi, who was evading arrest for almost a fortnight in connection with the poaching of a black buck, finally surrendered at a local court in Jhajjar, Haryana and was remanded to police custody for questioning. Among the seven accused in the case evading arrest, 'Tiger' is the only person to surrender and the rest are still elusive. The 65 year old "nawab' was granted bail on Monday -- but there was a bit of drama as the judge stated he had been receiving threatening calls against granting bail to him . If found guilty, Pataudi faces a jail term of up to seven years and a fine of Rs 25,000.

The debonair India cricket captain first met the glamorous film star at a shoot in 1965. He is said to have wooed the Bengali beauty with roses—and an imported refrigerator. After overcoming objections from their families, they married on December 27, 1969. The perfect match between royalty and movie star is still going strong.
