Despite the crores they rake every year from movies, endorsement deals and product launches, some celebrities prefer to not spoil their children with expensive gifts. On the other hand, there are other celeb parents who love to shower their offsprings with the best things that money can buy. When you are a rich famous celebrity, the ante goes up accordingly.
Bollywood star kids have experienced a luxury life and have seen more extravagance and wealth within the first few years of their existence that people like us, would never even dream of seeing in our entire life. But every expensive/non-expensive present is worth the smile that every parent gets in return from their children. Here’s the list of a few celeb kids, who got pampered with the most lavish, yet super-special presents from their parents, which will definitely leave you green with envy.
Born on November 16, 2011, Bachchan family managed to keep her away from the media glare and paparazzi. On November 16, 2012, when Aaradhya turned one, her daddy cool, Abhishek Bachchan and mommy dearest, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan gifted her a red BMW Mini Cooper S as well as a holiday home for her in Dubai. As per the reports, their Dubai holiday home costs around Rs 54 crores. And when Aaradhya turned 4, Abhishek got her an Audi A8 as her birthday present. Are you jealous? No? Wait for the next toddler on the list!
With his chubby cheeks, attractive eyes and contagious giggles, Taimur Ali Khan has his own fan-following far more than his star parents, Kareena Kapoor Khan and Saif Ali Khan. Born on December 20, 2016, Taimur garnered love and stardom even before he was born. Before his first birthday, his daddy Saif gifted the little one with a car, which cost whopping Rs 1.3 crore. This swanky red coloured jeep had an additional baby seat for baby, Taimur.
When asked by the media, Saif was quoted as saying:
“I think I’ll give him this car. There is a baby-seat in the back of the car, so I think I will take Taimur out for a ride in it. Security is also very important and there is a baby-seat too. I think Taimur will love the colour, nice cherry red car. I have thought that I will keep this car for him.”
While Saif and Kareena are a perfect blend of ‘royal meets regal’, their little munchkin Taimur is the cherry on the cake top. The little one also has a customized shoulder bag, which has TAK (Taimur Ali Khan) written on it. Well for a Pataudi Prince who wears Gucci shoes worth 20-30k and has a whopping amount worth stroller, a customized bag is no biggie. And this is not the end!
The chote Nawab received the most special gift from mommy Kareena’s nutritionist, Rujuta gifted him a forest stretched over 1000 sq. ft on his first birthday. She posted the picture on her Instagram and captioned it:
"A little forest for Taimur. A little boy can never have enough of birds, bees and butterflies and so we have put together a small forest as a birthday gift for the little big boy, Taimur, in Sonave. It’s a special forest, one that thrives on intercropping and i hope that as he grows he too will thrive in and celebrate a diverse society. A society where people live together through and due to their distinctions.
The forest has about 100 trees on a 1000 sq ft plot. The trees are as young as Taimur, even younger actually, and each one of them is a local, native, climate resilient specie. It will be a forest of the super foods of the future. There are 3 jamuns, 1 jackfruit, 1 amla, 40 Bananas, 14 Moringas, 1 Kokum, 1 Papaya, 5 Seetaphal, 2 Ramphals, 2 Nimbu trees. Besides these it grows 3 different types of native pulses and many Mirchi, Ginger, Turmeric and kari patta plants. Not to mention the green leafy veggies and the genda phools that grow in between.
The forest is inspired by Padma Shri Subhash Palekar’s zero budget natural farming where one tree grows symbiotically off another and thus is thrifty on one’s pocket. The forest will become a home for pollinating agents like the butterflies, bees, birds and earthworms. It will help nurture the soil, fix back the nitrogen and minerals in the soil that it grows on, preserve the water table and look elegant and beautiful while doing it all.
Here’s to living sustainably! Happy Birthday Taimur."
Lucky kid, indeed!
While Shah Rukh Khan and Gauri Khan would have gifted their children, Aryan and Suhana with various gifts, one that made it to the media headlines is Audi A6 cars. Way back in 2009, Bollywood’s King Khan gifted Aryan and Suhana with Audi A6 cars which were specially equipped with a multimedia navigation system and a DSP sound system. Something that car lovers would love to obsess over for hours!
If you think only Aryan and Suhana, being the eldest, were pampered the most by daddy Shah Rukh Khan, you’re wrong. SRK and Gauri’s youngest munchkin, AbRam Khan is the epitome of cuteness and innocence. AbRam’s gift by his parents is every child’s dream.
Gauri and Shah Rukh Khan gifted their little one with a tree house which apparently comes with its own balconies, stairs and mini furniture. And being a celeb kid, AbRam got his tree house specially designed from Sabu Cyril, who executed SRK’s Bandra home, Mannat too.
Rani Mukerji and Aditya Chopra, who managed to keep their 2-year-old daughter, Adira Chopra away from the paparazzi, believe in keeping their personal life private. But however, the news of Adira’s special gift by her star parents slipped through and made the headlines. Apparently, Adira has been gifted with, not one but two bungalows as her birthday present, which are currently under construction in Juhu, Mumbai. The bungalows are close to the Yash Raj Studios and their residence at Yari road.
Ace B-town director, Karan Johar gifted his twins, Yash Johar and Roohi Johar with a special nursery. Compared to other celeb kids, this might not look extravagant as their gifts, but there’s a catch! Yash and Roohi’s nursery is designed by his close friend and one of the best interior designers, Gauri Khan. Karan shared the glimpses of the nursery and captioned them, “@gaurikhan designs my baby nursery with so much love and care!! Love you Gauri! It's the most beautiful space....”
He also wrote, “The detailing of the baby nursery... designed with love and care by @gaurikhan”. Even the renowned lyricist, Javed Akhtar gifted the little ones with a self-composed special poem.
Shahid Kapoor and Mira Rajput Kapoor leave no stone unturned to make everything special for their little cutesy, Misha Kapoor. Misha is the apple of her parents’ eyes, and to make her first birthday a memorable one, Shahid and Mira gifted her with a London trip. Yes! Shahid and Mira along with Misha went for a family trip to London to celebrate her first birthday. This is one such gift that we can at least dream of having on our birthday, isn’t it?
Shilpa Shetty Kundra and Raj Kundra’s multi-millionaire heir and super-adorable munchkin, Viaan Raj Kundra was born on May 21, 2012. Shilpa is a doting mother to Viaan and from spending all her time with him, going on family vacays to making his special days even more special, she does everything for her little one. On one of his birthdays, Viaan was gifted a Lambhorgini along with a customized jersey specially made for him, by his mommy, Shilpa Shetty Kundra.
Though there are pros and cons of every life, the grass always looks greener on the other side. Well, these little toddlers are indeed lucky to have such rich and generous parents. These celeb parents have definitely raised the bar for the rest of the parents. But, expensive or inexpensive, gifts from parents are always super-special for children and worth remembering!
