Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor had met on the sets of their film, Tashan, and had fallen in love. After dating each other for some years and being in a live-in relationship, it was in October 2012, that they had tied the knot. Saif and Kareena are blessed with two little munchkins, Taimur Ali Khan and Jehangir Ali Khan. Together, they have been the anchor in each other’s life, supporting one another and passing on their wisdom.
Often we have seen Kareena Kapoor Khan and Saif Ali Khan being the target of trolls. Yes, that’s one thing that comes with stardom and easy accessibility to social media. From Kareena being trolled for marrying a man, who is 11 years older than her to being trolled for her fashion sense, the actress has now grown thick-skinned to the trolls. Not just this, Saif and Kareena are brutally trolled even for the name of their kids, Taimur and Jehangir.
While we know, for Kareena Kapoor Khan, the best way to deal with the trolls is to ignore them, in a conversation with Bollywood Bubble, Saif Ali Khan shared the advice about trolling that his wife gave to him. Sharing how trolling spoils his mood and the advice Kareena gave him, he said, “I don't read (troll comments). I am off it and it is really cool. Because it also helps me focus. It can get addictive, you know. I can google myself and start checking out what I said when and then I read something I don't like and it spoils my mood. My wife told me, ‘you know what just stop doing it’. I had stopped for a while and I really started saying what do I do."
Saif Ali Khan further added that social media is a dangerous place as people throw a lot of violence around. He added, “There is something about social media which is so dangerous. There is so much anonymity you don't know who is talking to whom. So people throw a lot of violence around and stuff like that. So it can get a little wrong.”
While earlier, Saif and Kareena were trolled for naming their firstborn, Taimur, the situation was the same, when they named their second child, Jehangir. For the unversed, Jehangir was the fourth Mughal Emperor, who had executed Sikh Guru, Arjan Dev, which was the reason why netizens had trolled Kareena and Saif mercilessly for naming their son after him. However, if we go by history, then Jehangir is a Persian word that means 'one who conquers the world'.
In an interview with India Today, Kareena Kapoor Khan was asked about her views and reaction to the online trolling and backlash for naming their second son 'Jehangir'. Addressing the same, Kareena Kapoor Khan had stated that she is an extremely positive person, which is why she doesn't get affected by these things. She had said, "I am a positive person and I want to spread happiness and positivity. There is no place for negativity in our lives."
Kareena Kapoor Khan and Saif Ali Khan had welcomed their first son, Taimur on December 20, 2016, and their second son, Jehangir, on February 21, 2021.
