It was on December 20, 2016, when the chote nawab of Pataudi, Taimur Ali Khan had graced the balcony of his residence in the arms of his star-parents, Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan. Ever since his first picture went viral on the internet, Taimur has become the ultimate and everyone’s favourite star kid on the block. His friendly gestures for the media and ever-smiling face has made lots of fans and followers. He even has plenty of fan clubs under his name. Just 3 years old, Taimur is followed by the paps everywhere and they leave no chance to interact with him. He has started to even reply to his mediawalle friends and his sweet ‘hi’ just win our hearts every time he is spotted.

Nawab of Pataudi, Saif Ali Khan had first seen Kareena Kapoor when she had accompanied her sister, Karisma Kapoor on the sets of their movie. At that time who would have thought that one day, Saif and Kareena will be treated as the Nawab and Begum of Pataudi. Romance brewed between them on the sets of their movie, Tashan and there was no looking back for the couple. Kareena added the surname ‘Khan’ to her name on October 16, 2012, and on December 20, 2016, God blessed them with their little bundle of joy, Taimur Ali Khan. In no time, Taimur has outlived the stardom of his parents.
Saif Ali Khan will be portraying the role of Udaybhan Singh in the movie, Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior and recently, the official page of House Of Pataudi shared an IGTV video of Saif prepping for his character. Saif, while getting groomed answered many questions about his character and how little Tim reacts after seeing him in the getup of the character. He also mentioned that he is attached to his beard and he had to let it go for the movie. When asked how will Taimur react to his getup, Saif replied, “Taimur will be like Sardar ji Sardar ji.” In the video, we could see little Tim eagerly looking at his father, while he gets ready for the character.
Kareena Kapoor Khan had once invited her sister-in-law, Soha Ali Khan on her chat show, What Women Want and the two had discussed about parenting and being a celebrity mother. During the interaction, Kareena had also talked about Saif’s obsession with Taimur. Kareena had shared she has to push Saif to go to work, whilst he wants to spend time with the little munchkin. Kareena remarked, “Saif is obsessed! I have to push him out, I have to tell him to go.” (Suggested Read: Raghu Ram's Brother, Rajiv Lakshman Shares The First-Ever Picture Of His Newborn Nephew, Rhythm)
Do you know, once Saif Ali Khan had wanted to cancel his shoot just to spend time with his son, Taimur Ali Khan? During the same show, Kareena had shared the incident with Soha. Kareena had said, “Saif was supposed to head out to Bhuj for a shoot and he almost cancelled the shoot saying, “Nahi nahi, cancel the shoot. I can't go. I can't leave Taimur.”” Kareena had added, “I'm like you have to go, you have to go to work. And I have to tell him that I want to be with you also now sometimes alone.” To this Soha had laughed off and had said that she can see it in Saif. Soha had retorted, “He is so in love with spending time with Taimur. We've organised playdates and I have got calls saying Taimur can't come because he's hanging out with sir.”
In 2018, at the India Today Conclave, Kareena had opened up about her life after the birth of Taimur and how she and Saif are as parents. She 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. Taimur loves his time with his mother! I think his mother spoils him because I’m always giving him the warmth and the cuddle. His father is teaching him to play cricket. So, there are things that we both try to balance out. When I’m doing a film, then Saif tries to be around. But now he’s shooting for the last three-and-a-half months, so I will be around Taimur.”
Saif Ali Khan, in an interview with a leading portal, had talked about Taimur Ali Khan being his travel partner. He was quoted as saying, “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."
