The lunch hosted by Indian Journalists' Association (IJA) in the Edwardian suite of the St James Court hotel in central London, will be attended by Pataudi's widow Sharmila Tagore, son Saif Ali Khan and daughters Saba Ali Khan and Soha Ali Khan.
They will be accompanied by Saif's fiance and Bollywood actress Kareena Kapoor. Also joining the event will be Pataudi's first cousin Shahryar Khan and his family.
Khan is a former foreign secretary of Pakistan and an ex-president of the Pakistan Cricket Board, a spokesman of IJA said.
