Taimur Ali Khan is not just another celebrity kid, but he is a sensation. With his dapper looks, cute smile and infectious mannerisms, he has won over a million hearts. He is a household name these days, all thanks to the advent of paparazzi and photo-culture in India. Taimur Ali Khan was born on December 20, 2017, to his superstar parents- Kareena Kapoor Khan and Saif Ali Khan and since then, he has been responsible for many transactions, both emotionally and monetarily! After all, how can we forget Karan Johar’s revelation on his chat show about Taimur’s rate card, right?

Taimur Ali Khan is everyone’s favourite and there is no second thought to it. Even the paparazzi who want to click him have become friendly with him. Talking about media’s obsessions with Taimur, his mommy, Kareena recently shared with the PTI that she feels it all to be socially irresponsible. The 38-year-old actress was quoted as saying, “We view it as something socially irresponsible because we have been such good parents, we haven't shied away, we never hid Taimur's face. In Hollywood, they don't allow children's faces to come (publish). But because Saif and I took the modern approach, we can't do that.”
Kareena also went to state that she and Saif don’t want to cover Taimur’s face when out in the public. She shared, “He would think 'what is happening?' I don't want him to grow up in that fear. I want him to grow up and fly, that's what parents want their children to do. I can't keep him away.”
Kareena also revealed that all she and her family want is just a sense of social responsibility. She retorted, “That would be nice from the media. I have never stopped them. But the constant attention, scrutiny (isn't good). Hopefully, he's going to be a cool kid like his parents, be more interested in music and sports. That's what we want.”
Kareena was actually present in an event, while talking to the PTI, where she was appointed as an ambassador of a nationwide vaccination campaign. Talking about how mothers should have the knowledge of vaccines and their importance, she also added, “It's important for mothers to have the knowledge of vaccination, they have to get the child immunised. It's important for mothers to have more knowledge because, for a newborn infant, they are taking that responsibility. That's why my life is in Taimur's hands because everything's about him. I hope people understand that and take it in a positive way.” (Must Read: Shah Rukh Khan And AbRam Khan's New Pic Is Winning Hearts All Over, He Treats Him Like An Adult)
Coming back to media’s obsession with Taimur, remember what nana Randhir Kapoor had once said about the same? He had said, “Every day I get up in the morning, and I see a picture of my grandson in the newspaper. The paparazzi is permanently stationed below the house. Now, everyone recognises his maid also! That’s because of the paparazzi.”
Taimur’s life has been filled with travelling and in only 2 years, he has travelled almost half of the world. Daddy, Saif Ali Khan once shared in an interview, how it is to have Taimur as their travel partner, “Despite having the idea of trying different things, we’ve ended up (and my wife is quite annoyed about this) going to the same places and doing the same things every year—London in summer, Gstaad in winter, with some parts of India, like Rajasthan and Pataudi, in between.”
Saif had further added, “We would have liked to go to more places in Italy and France—and we will. But you know, there is also something comforting about going to the same places, because the people know you and the hotel feels like home. With Taimur, we also end up travelling with a bit of an entourage. We never travelled light, but after Taimur, we travel even heavier."
Kareena recently opened up about her life after the birth of Taimur. The actress was quoted as saying, "My life is no more my own. My heart no more beats inside me. It beats in this gorgeous-looking boy that I sleep next to every night and everything is in his two tiny little hands.” (You May Like: Alia Bhatt Paints The Sky Blue As She Turns Bridesmaid For Her Best Friend's Wedding)
Taimur Ali Khan and the media’s obsession over him has made Taimur and his cuteness reach to a million houses. We hope that paparazzi and media feel a sense of ‘social responsibility’ for hereon.
