Filmmaker Shekhar Kapoor termed Pataudi as one of the most courageous cricketers in the world. He wrote, “Tiger has left us. One of the most courageous cricketers the world has known, who took on the fastest bowlers in the world after losing one eye. Deepest condolences to Sharmila, Saif, Soha and Saba, Tiger Pataudi will be missed, one of the biggest icons of my generation, why so early?,”
