Kareena Kapoor Khan revealed at an event in March that son Taimur Ali Khan was initially meant to be named Faiz. In a conversation with journalist Rajdeep Sardesai, she was asked if too much of media scrutiny spoils their private life, especially after how the social media trolled her son's name. Kareena said: "Of course, there was trolling but at the same time there was an immense support from the people we were getting, not that trolls matter to us that much but it was our choice"
Did you know? Kareena Kapoor Khan lovingly refers to son Taimur as 'Little John'. After Saif and Kareena announced their son's name as Taimur Ali Khan Pataudi, Twitterati went on to troll the couple and the baby's name. They questioned why they named their son after 'the Turco-Mongol conqueror Timur'. To this veteran Bollywood actor and Kareena's uncle Rishi Kapoor lashed out at the trolls and was even joined by Karan Johar
Taimur (or Timur) (who Saif-Kareena's son is named after) translates to 'iron'. He was a 14th century Turco-Mongol ruler and Mughal dynasty founder, Babur's ancestor. His ambition was to rebuild the empire of Genghis Khan, who had died a century prior, and his conquests included large parts of Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Azerbaijan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Turkey, Syria, and Delhi. A promoter of arts and literature, he is behind the stunning city of Samarkand in Uzbekistan
October actor Varun Dhawan, who turned 31 on April 24, shared a hilarious meme on Instagram, in which, Varun and Taimur Ali Khan are conversing about former's age. The post reads, "Varun: Taimur, tumhe pata hai mai 31 years ka ho gaya? (Taimur, do you know that I am 31 years old now?). Taimur: Lekin Varun bhaiya, mujhe toh aap meri age ke lagte ho. (But brother Varun, you look my age)"

In the video, which has now gone viral, she is seen saying, "Akshay (actor Akshay Kumar), Taimur is a threat to you, I am telling you"
Kareena Kapoor was also seen saying the actor, who was sitting in the audience, about how Taimur would undoubtedly beat him at the Box Office if their films ever released together. "Even in your fan following, he can surpass you. It's an open challenge," told the 37-year-old actress to Akshay Kumar

In an interview with mid-day, Kareena Kapoor Khan spoke about how scary it gets to deal with so much attention around Taimur Ali Khan. She said, "Frankly, I am paranoid. So much attention on him is scary. The more I think of it, the more I want to put a kaala teeka on him. I don't want him to leave the house. But that's me going overboard. I control my feelings only so that my son can grow up like a regular kid. He deserves to have that chance sans any pressure"
