Seems like just yesterday when Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan had posed in their balcony with their little munchkin and Pataudi khandaan ka chiraag, Taimur Ali Khan. Can’t believe that it’s been two years since that day and chote Nawab is reigning the B-town and like how! Be it weddings, a vacation, his playschool spotting, a day outing with parents or a play date with his cousin baby sister, Inaaya Naumi Kemmu, Taimur tops the trending charts everywhere.

Speaking of vacations, Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan along with Taimur Ali Khan are on a work-cum-leisure trip to Italy and London. Bebo’s manager, Poonam Damania had treated their fans with some pictures of Kareena, Saif and Taimur from their Tuscany vacation and they can be seen making the most of their ‘us’ time. Sharing a romantic sunkissed selfie of Saifeena, Poonam wrote, “Soaking in the sun”. And posting a family picture with a picturesque backdrop of Tuscany, she captioned it, “Hello from Tuscany from the Pataudi's”.
After spending some days in Tuscany, Saif Ali Khan, Kareena Kapoor Khan and Taimur Ali Khan headed to London, where Saif had to prep for his upcoming film, Jawaani Jaaneman. A picture of this amazing Khan-Kapoor family has surfaced on the social media, wherein Kareena, Saif and Taimur are enjoying the rain-soaked streets of the city. Kareena is casually dressed in a white T-shirt, black jacket and denim, while her hubby, Saif sported a grey sweatshirt and jeans, carrying baby Tim on his shoulders.
During an interaction with the Bombay Times, Saif Ali Khan was asked about how he manages to spend time with his family owing to the hectic work schedule. To which, the Sacred Games star had stated, "When I come home after work and find Taimur sleeping, I feel bad. We shoot long hours, but if I haven’t packed up even after 8 pm, I feel uncomfortable because it means taking away time from my son." He had further said, "In my growing-up years, my parents taught me about the importance of respecting family space. My father (Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi) was a cricketer and mother (Sharmila Tagore) is an actress, and they both had hectic schedules. However, we learnt that it is important to talk about other things, too, at home and that’s how life becomes beautiful."
Sharing the cons of working in the film industry and how it impacts on actor’s personal life, Saif Ali Khan concluded by saying, "Behind our outwardly glamorous lives, there is a long list of missed birthdays, anniversaries, and new year holidays. In that sense, working on TV is harder and more intense than doing a film. Life goes on pretty fast and time flies. And I really feel that if you can’t spend time with family and loved ones it is really a waste."

Saif Ali Khan, Kareena Kapoor Khan and Taimur Ali Khan along with Soha Ali Khan, Kunal Kemmu and Inaaya Naumi Kemmu went for a holiday to the Maldives in September 2018. Speaking about the family trip to the Maldives, Bebo was quoted as saying by Conde Nast Traveller, “Actually we’ve been to the Maldives many times, but this was our son, Taimur’s first visit, which was special. Plus the Soneva Fushi is a very different kind of resort—rustic, more about the environment. It’s lush and green—the texture of the entire place is very different to places we’ve stayed at before, so that was lovely.”
When Saif Ali Khan was asked if family holidays can be stressful, he had retorted, “There’s always a slight disconnect between the ideal picture one has of a family holiday and the reality of it. But that’s all right, we keep trying! In this social media age, people just post pictures on Instagram of the happy times, so everyone just sees these amazing dinners and these great laughs. But there are arguments, and that’s also part of it. There’s no way, or even need, to avoid it. There is no fix for it—it’s called family.”
Speaking about how travel had changed for the couple after Taimur Ali Khan’s birth and what kind of holidays they take and the experiences they want their little one to have, Saif Ali Khan had remarked, “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. 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.” (Also Read: Disha Patani And Tiger Shroff Celebrate Her Birthday With A Dinner Date, Happily Pose For Paparazzi)
