Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor’s son, Taimur Ali Khan Pataudi is the talk of the town. The most famous baby in the country will celebrate his 2nd birthday in December this year. Even Sharmila Tagore, Taimur’s paternal grandmother feels that he is more famous than she is. By Kareena’s own admission, her son can give tough competition to even Akshay Kumar when it comes to popularity.
Not only Akshay, the baby is probably more popular than Kanye and Kim’s daughter, North West. At first the popularity was because of his name. However, now the media is sent into some sort of frenzy whenever Taimur is spotted. Be it at the airport, or even when he is going to his playschool.
The couple has never shied away from bringing the baby out in public. However, they have now decided to appoint a personal bodyguard for Taimur’s safety. This comes after a fan randomly tried to take a sefie with him as reported by Bollywood Life. Blame it on the little guy’s cuteness. He is always happy to meet his paparazzi friends. He even giggles and smiles at them as they go about clicking his pictures.
In an interview with a leading newspaper, Kareena said that she feels Taimur is still too young for so much media attention. She has accepted the popularity of her son however wants him to lead a ‘normal life.’
“I feel it’s getting used to his name being called out and not particularly the cameras around. I don’t think he can make out that he’s being clicked. He’s still too small for that,” she stated.
In an Instagram video which went viral recently, paparazzi can be seen calling out his name. However, being the true star that he is, Taimur turns his head in response while his nanny quickly sits in the car and takes off.
