Thank heavens! No ban on paparazzi clicking Taimur Ali Khan
Taimur Ali Khan's doting parents Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan have realised that it's impossible to guard their child from prying eyes and shutterbugs.
Taimur Ali Khan's zillions of fans can heave a sigh of relief. Since the past few days, there was chatter about Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor not wanting the paparazzi to tail their son. Turns out there's no truth to these rumours. Taimur's doting parents have realised that it's impossible to guard him from prying eyes and shutterbugs.
So where there is Tai Tai (as netizens call him) or Tim (as he prefers to call himself), paps will follow. Meanwhile, fans can continue oohing and aahing over the tot's endearing pictures.
Recently, during Baazaar's promotional event, Saif Ali Khan expressed concern over the growing paparazzi culture in India. He wondered how people could be so interested in his two-year-old son Taimur Ali Khan's life. "Media's constant attention to him does not really bother me, but it would be better if it was not there. If the media likes it, people like it, I am okay with it; but I won't be interested in someone else's kids so much. On one level, it is nice that he makes people laugh and smile; but on another level, why is so much attention given to a kid? Why are we so interested in a little kid so much? I don't understand it," he said with a smile.
He likes to keep his distance from social media, even though Taimur is a star in that space, while sister Soha Ali Khan and sister-in-law Karisma Kapoor are quite active on various platforms. Saif explained, "I could easily be on social media but I don't like the idea of it. I like my own world. There are many horrible people out there. We all should create our own world. I don't want to be the voice in one more loud market. It becomes an addiction and we always worry about what people think. We should live our lives for ourselves. Putting a picture and (waiting to) see if someone likes it or not. What does it mean? I get my validation of what I feel... But not from other people."
