Bollywood actress Kareena Kapoor Khan, who welcomed her first baby boy Taimur Ali Khan Pataudi on December 20, is currently enjoying this phase of her life. Saif and Kareena’s baby boy was the most-awaited star kid of the industry but after he was born, in no time; his name sparked a lot of controversies and invited trolls on social media. The couple was slammed for naming their son Taimur and the whole Taimur row was blown out of the proportion.
In a recent interview with an online portal, Kareena was asked to express her state of mind when the name of her son turned out to be a controversy and a history on social media. The Ki and Ka actress replied saying, “What shocked me was how quickly every person online turned into a history student, especially the trolls, who are the most clueless of the lot. Who made you the guardian of history, overnight? I have a message: Dear troll, you were wrong, as you so often are. His name is Taimur, which means Iron and I can assure you that he’ll live up to the meaning of his name. You confused him with Timur. In any case, we took it with a pinch of salt and both of us were least affected by it. We’re very proud of his name and there’s absolutely no question of changing it. There never was. You really think we would give into this kind of silly pressure? Sorry, internet.”
Kareena also slammed the reports of renaming her son’s name and calling him ‘Little John. In an interview a leading daily, she said, “How can anyone think that? Why would I call my son Little John? My son’s name is Taimur. It is the most beautiful name, and he is the most beautiful and gorgeous man (smiles). And, no, I don’t call him Little John. Please address him as Taimur Ali Khan.”
Well, Kareena Kapoor Khan is among those stars of Bollywood who speaks her mind without mincing a word and she has done it again. So as Kareena warns, “Please address him as Taimur Ali Khan.”
