Kareena Kapoor Khan and Saif Ali Khan blessed with a baby on December 20 last year.
Soon after couple revealed their son’s name, the baby was trolled. Twitter trolls slammed the couple for giving their child a name which also happens to be the name of a barbaric invader as Taimur Ali Khan.
At the latest, Kareena Kapoor Khan has finally broken her silence on the controversy over the name of baby Taimur.
Here is what she said: “It was bizarre. I have no idea why people took my baby’s name so personally. But we love the name and let me put it this way — it has no resemblance to any person living or dead. We love the meaning and I am happy that [some] people came out in support of us so strongly. That support matters more than anything bad that was said or written”.
Few time back daddy Saif Ali Khan also said “He scowls a lot, passes wind and yells so Kareena thinks he’s a lot like me—a cranky, farty yeller!” he says about Taimur, arguably the most famous baby in the country at the moment”.
Talking about the social media storm that had erupted over his son’s name, Saif said, “Social media just makes it clear what everybody is thinking in a sense. There is a lot of anonymity from the side of the people who are doing the talking so they feel free to say whatever they like, and sometimes they get very nasty.”
“I’m aware of the heritage of the Turkish ruler and my son was not named after him. He was Timur, my son is Taimur. Perhaps the root is similar but it’s not the same name. Taimur is an ancient Persian name meaning iron. Both my wife and I liked its sound and the meaning. In fact, of all the names I ran by Kareena, she liked this one the best because it’s beautiful and strong. Taimur was the name of a boy he’d grown up with and a cousin too. It’s an old family name like Sara who was also named after a cousin I admired” Saif added.
Recently, new mommy looked gorgeous as she walked the ramp in a shimmery gold outfit, 46 days after the birth of her first baby, son Taimur. She turned heads at the grand finale of Lakme Fashion Week where she was the showstopper for Anita Dongre.
