Taimur Ali Khan is easily the most popular star kid in town. Have you ever seen any other kid (AbRam being a close second) get this much attention from the paparazzi and fans alike? We think not! The little one is photographed everywhere he goes – his nani’s house, play dates with his friends and of course, at the airport with his Mama aka Kareena Kapoor Khan. What’s interesting here though is that Saif Ali Khan and Kareena never tried to hide Taimur from the world. His pictures surfaced on the Internet a few days after he was born and since then, the parents have made no effort to hide him.
In a recent interview with DNA, Saif had a very logical answer for why they chose to do that and also revealed that Taimur loves the camera! (Definitely in the genes)
“You have to see how he looks at a camera. If you point your phone at him, he will look at you. It’s just that way ever since he was born. I think he’s gotten used to it. You can’t shield your kid because then it will become weird. Our paparazzi is anyway, pretty harmless because they just want a picture for their job so they can feed themselves. We are the only nation that poses for the paparazzi. They take the picture and everyone is happy. I told Kareena, “Let’s not hide him.” If everybody calms down, there is less people getting stamped on and pushed. Now, it’s chilled and everyone’s used to it. It’s no big deal.”
Can you imagine what it would’ve been like otherwise?
