TRAWLING THROUGH HISTORY.
The Babis were three brothers.
The eldest got Balasinor, the middle one got Junagad and the youngest got Radhanpur. Late Bollywood heartthrob Parveen Babi was a descendant of the Babis.
The present Nawab of Balasinor ascended the throne when he was only nine months. As he was a minor, the late Maharaja of Lunawada acted as his guardian.
In 1948, the state merged with the Indian union.
In 2009, Princess Aaliya travelled to England to take part in a BBC reality show Undercover Princesses . In the show she was supposed to live a normal life and search for a Mr Right. Two others princesses were also part of the show.
