Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan have been very open about their child – Taimur Ali Khan Pataudi. From sharing snaps of their baby from the hospital to posing with him in their balcony, the couple has not tried to hide him at all. However, they did not plan for his latest picture to go viral. Saif had apparently put a picture of Taimur as his Whatsapp display picture. Someone spotted it and put it on social media. The picture went viral, but Kareena was not happy after that.
Talking about Kareena’s reaction post the incident, Saif Ali Khan revealed to HT Cafe, “Yes (she was not happy). She was like, ‘Nazar lag jayegi and all of that’. But agar nazar lagni hoti toh Kareena would be in the hospital by now (smiles). I don’t believe in all of that. I didn’t mean to share it. It was my WhatsApp display picture. But it is fine. I don’t plan to hide him. We will have a tough time figuring out how to bring him up. I think Taimur is already a bit of a popular chap. So, I think we will have to teach him to be grounded, as people will watch whatever he does.”
In the interview with the daily, Saif Ali Khan also mentioned how he misses home even more after Taimur‘s birth and he loves sharing responsibility with Kareena. As he added, “I miss home more now (after Taimur’s birth). I don’t feel happy about shooting from 9 am to 9 pm every day. I miss Taimur when I’m away. In our (Kareena and his) relationship, we feel good that we have brought someone into the world together, someone who is half hers and half mine. I think we were ready for that. We have had lots of fun by ourselves. Now, it’s time to share a little responsibility and take things to another level.”
He also mentioned how the controversy surrounding Taimur’s name did not amuse him at all, but he clarifies that they never wanted to offend anyone. As Saif further mentioned, “I wasn’t really amused (by the controversy). Half of it was a misunderstanding because the bottom line is that I have not named him (son) after anybody like that (Turco-Mongol conqueror, Timur). There is no point getting into an argument. There are enough liberal as well as some not-so liberal people in the country, who take medieval history personally. I don’t know what to say to that except that I didn’t mean to offend anyone. I love the name and I think it suits him.”
