Soha was born on October 4, 1978, to late cricketer Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi and actress Sharmila Tagore.
She is the sister of Bollywood actor Saif Ali Khan.
In an interview with Rediff, Soha said: “I'm very lucky that I have my mother -- who was such a great actress -- and my brother as family. I read scripts with them. We have discussions and I take in their inputs and advice about how to play a role. But in the end when it comes to actually signing up for a role, it's my own decision. And bhai is very respectful of that."
