Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor's two-year-old son is an inspiration on social media. Even before managing to build any body of work, Taimur Ali Khan has spawned fan groups that rival those of established stars.
Instagrammers spend hours trawling for pictures of Taimur Ali Khan, discussing his swag, alabaster cheeks, quirky shoes and weakness for toy horses.
Sharmila Tagore recently said the only way for the family to deal with paparazzi frenzy over grandson Taimur is to accept it. "I am old-fashioned. I don't think children should be exposed to all this."
"However, I have learnt from granddaughter Sara to say, 'If you can't beat them, join them'," the veteran actor said on the sidelines of a recent awards gala.
The photographers spend an equal amount of time outside Taimur Ali Khan's Bandra residence waiting for a picture. Senior photographer at mid-day, Shadab Khan, who has often been on "Taimur duty", says there are two likely points in the day to bag a photo — late morning, when he may appear on the balcony for time on the swing, and in the evening, when he heads out to play.
That he responds to photographers instead of recoiling like most children his age, looks them in the eye and often breaks into a gurgling smile makes Taimur Ali Khan an easy delight with the press.
