Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan's infant son Taimur Ali Khan is the cynosure of all eyes wherever he goes. Mom Kareena Kapoor Khan recently revealed during a media interaction that she initially planned to shoot for Veere Di Wedding when she was pregnant but the lack of maternity insurance for actresses in India made her choose otherwise. The makers took three months to rework the script so that she could shoot with a baby bump
While Kareena Kapoor Khan asked the makers of Veere Di Wedding to approach someone else for her part, they waited for her. "Rhea Kapoor wanted me on board, even if it meant delaying the film by another year. No one ever put any pressure on me. I knew I would take time to resume because I had to be with Taimur. I returned to the set in Delhi over six months after delivery," Kareena says. Pictured: Kareena all happy to see Taimur
Kareena Kapoor Khan stresses that like the makers of Veere Di Wedding, others in Bollywood also need to be more accommodating of women who choose motherhood. "This team supported a new mother so well. If I had a night shoot, they didn't call me for the next 12 hours so that I could be with Taimur. And in case of a morning schedule, they'd let me off early."
It's not easy to rival Kareena Kapoor Khan's stardom. But at 15 months, son Taimur Ali Khan Pataudi gives her stiff competition - he is often labelled the national sensation with his pictures and memes continuously doing the rounds. While grandfather Randhir Kapoor has voiced his displeasure on the constant scrutiny Taimur is subjected to, Kareena is far from being offended by the social media obsession
"Saif [Ali Khan, husband] and I discuss that our baby is bringing a smile to everyone's face. We see it in a positive light and move on," Kareena Kapoor Khan reasons. Well aware of her own, and now, her son Taimur Ali Khan's soaring popularity, she quips, "People around are unsure whether they should address me as a superstar or the mother of the country's youngest superstar."
Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan have time and again stated that they want Taimur to grow up being accustomed to the paparazzi. However, Kareena's maternal streak comes to the fore when she admits that sometimes, the hoopla around her tiny tot gets too much to handle
