Kareena Kapoor Khan Feels 'Terrible' For Her Kids, Taimur And Jehangir Being Trolled For Their Names

The power couple of Bollywood, Kareena Kapoor Khan, and Saif Ali Khan are hands-on parents. The duo had embraced parenthood for the first time in 2016 with the arrival of their son, Taimur Ali Khan. And in 2021, Saif and Kareena had become parents for the second time as they had welcomed their second son, Jehangir Ali Khan.

When Kareena had named her first child, Taimur Ali Khan, she was trolled for naming him after a 'barbaric' ruler. So, when she had welcomed her second child, Jeh, Kareena had decided to keep the little one away from the limelight. But when his actual name, Jehangir, was disclosed a few days back, netizens had left no stone unturned to troll the family.

In an interview with The Guardian, Kareena opened up about the trolls targeting her kids, Taimur and Jehangir. The Omkara actress revealed that she felt terrible to see her kids being subjugated to online trolling and shared, "Honestly, these are names that we just liked; it’s nothing else. They are beautiful names and they’re beautiful boys. It’s unfathomable why somebody would troll children. I feel terrible about it, but I have to just focus and get through it. I can’t be looking at my life through the trolls."


As soon as the reports of Kareena Kapoor Khan and Saif Ali Khan naming their second child, Jehangir had started doing the rounds, netizens had started trolling the couple for hurting Sikh Community's sentiments. For the unversed, Jehangir was the fourth Mughal Emperor, who had executed Sikh Guru Arjan Dev.

When their first child, Taimur Ali Khan, was born in 2016, his name had created a lot of stir on social media. Soon after the star parents had announced the name of their baby boy, netizens had started questioning the origin of his name as ‘Taimur’ was a historic name of a Persian emperor, who had invaded India in 1398.


In a conversation with journalist, Barkha Dutt, Kareena Kapoor Khan had talked about the whole controversy. When the journalist had asked her about how she had dealt with all the trolling on Taimur's name, Kareena had stated, “What happened about his name was just ghastly. It was disgusting and I'll never forget it. It has obviously scarred me deeply as a person, as a mother. What I name my child, what I call him, is completely my discretion and of nobody else's concern.”
