Sadruddin Aga Khan ne se prenait pas pour n’importe qui. Et il ne l’était pas. Celui qui avait l’honneur de franchir les portes de son somptueux château de Bellerive ou, dans le cas particulier, de son hôtel de la Vieille-Ville, était reçu par un serviteur égyptien en livrée. Il se voyait servir une tasse de café turc dans la plus fine porcelaine. Admirait le salon Empire, les tentures de velours et les fenêtres Renaissance ouvrant sur de luxuriantes terrasses.
