Taimur Ali Khan Pataudi, the first born child of Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan, was caught by the social media trollers not once but twice since his birth in December last year.
The royal family of Bollywood was at the receiving end for naming their son after a violent Turkish ruler. In fact, Saif had even spoken in his defense saying, “I am aware that there is a Turkish ruler who is possibly a little violent. That was Timur and this is Taimur. It might sound similar because it has similar roots. Also, to judge the past by today’s lens is a little far out. A name doesn’t really mean anything. Asoka is a violent name then. There’s Alexander too.”
Has this made Bebo rechristened her beautiful baby boy? As per TOI report, Bebo no longer refers to Taimur as Taimur but calls him as her ‘Little John’! Can you believe it?!
Do you think it’s because of the social media outburst? We don’t think so!! It’s just a nickname that Taimur has received from dear mommy. Remember how the new mommy gushed about her little prince? She had said, “I say it with a lot of pride that he (Taimur) is a gorgeous child, not because he is mine, but because he is very good looking. Yes, he has the Pathan genes, but it’s also because I ate a lot of ghee.”
But we are indeed curious to know the story behind this new name?
