In a recent interaction with the Bombay Times, the Sacred Games actor poured his heart out on how he feels when Taimur is sleeping after he comes back home from work. Saif was quoted as saying, "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.”
Recalling his own growing years and what his parents have taught him, he further added, “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."

For the ones who don’t know, Kareena had once shared the mantra behind striking a perfect balance between personal and professional lives, “I’m at a stage in my life where I don’t have to choose between career & family. I’m doing both. I’m an actor but through all the ups & downs I’ve been a sister, a wife, a mom & none of these roles have deterred me. In fact, it’s put me on the right path. My dreams have gotten bigger–there’s much more to achieve. As an actor, and as a woman.”
For the ones who have been living under the rocks, Kareena will soon shine on small screen as well with her mentor aura on Dance India Dance season 7. Talking about being a part of the dance reality show, DID, Kareena had shared, "My management told me about DID's offer, but initially, I wasn't sure. It has been a long-standing show. In their 10th year, they have revamped the concept, made it a 360-degree set with over 200 cameras shooting the acts. So, I was excited to join them." Bebo had further added, "I made it clear that I don't work for more than eight hours because of my son, Taimur. Sometimes, I can make an exception of working up to 12 hours. The makers have been kind and worked out everything the way I wanted." (Checkout: Esha Deol And Bharat Takhtani Become Parents Again, Give Their Second Child A Unique Indian Name)
On the other hand, she had also told the Indian Express, "Television takes a lot of time, and after Taimur, I don’t work for more than eight hours. I am a working mother, but I need my time with my son. I want to be home before he eats his dinner and at that time, I spend only with him. This was the only condition I had while signing the show and the makers have been kind enough to balance my time."
In an interaction with the Mumbai Mirror recently, Saif revealed his little one, Tim’s reaction on his Jawaani Jaaneman look. He was quoted as saying, "Tim says he wants to grow his hair long too, while my wife and family were quite relieved to see my new look like most people." In the same interview, he had opened up about their blissful vacation with Kareena and Taimur in Italy and Saif had stated, "I’m spending some family time at the Ferragamo estate. Next, I head to London to prep for Jawaani Jaaneman which will start on June 18." (Checkout: Ekta Kaul And Sumeet Vyas Reveal Baby Plans, She Also Shares If She Feels Jealous As He Is Hot)

He had then told the Hindustan Times, "They hang out here at home. She is very small and delicate, and he is a ruffian, but we have a lot of people around, so we don’t need to be worried. But Taimur is a gunda. I hope he doesn’t pull her hair (laughs)."
Wishing all the love and happiness to Saif, Kareena and Taimur!
