Given BMW's history with Rover, i doubt they will be able to do any better with Jaguar
A pretty detailed history of what went down with BMW-Rover

Don't see any chances of Jaguar fitting into any of their plans. Jaguar needs BMW more than the vice-versa.
Is it? As per the link BMW and Jaguar have a collaboration going on EVs.

BMW is working through a $14 billion savings plan and JLR is undergoing a 2.5 billion-pound savings program and cutting 4,500 jobs. The two already agreed to collaborate on their next generation of electric cars earlier this year.

I just hope the top management of Tata Motors is kept stable. This is a crucial phase in the company's growth and it is essential that the vision is sustained and seen through. The Defender may potentially provide so much needed solace for JLRs woes negating any need for a take over and such.

Drive on,

I think if it happens, it is a good fit for BMW. Mainly because of Land Rover positioning. It is seen as a 'take anywhere' car whereas with the BMW off-roaders, one treads with caution. I have seen Dubai sheikhs taking their LR into the harshest desert while BMWs and Mercs would be parked on the road. But Tata Motors wont let go of their crown jewel, it just doesn't make sense. Any way you look at it. They just have to ride out this bad patch they're having in China, bring out the Hybrids and Electrics. That's the future.

Chandrasekharan clears the air, Tata Motors is not willing sell off any JLR's stake, but looking for partnerships for technical advancements.
Analysts at Sanford C. Bernstein last month described JLR as “severely challenged” and said Tata Motors should look at BMW AG as a buyer because the German company is “awash with cash.” Tata has previously denied reports it is looking at strategic options for JLR, including a possible stake sale.

Chandrasekaran said he would seek more technical partnerships to help Tata Motors transition to electric and autonomous vehicles, but he has no interest in selling the company.

“Auto is a core business for us,” he said. “We don’t want to do partnerships where we just sell a stake and we have no say. We are not financial investors.”
