Not long from today, there will come a time when scholars will sit down and change the meaning of the word 'obsession' to 'Taimur Ali Khan'. Yes, this two-and-a-half-year-old lad has been winning hearts all over, so much so, that paparazzi and shutterbugs never get tired of clicking baby Tim. Even if Taimur is scheduled to be at 10 different places in a day, each one of them would greedily visit all the venues!

Taimur Ali Khan, born to star parents- Kareena Kapoor Khan and Saif Ali Khan, on December 20, 2016, has become a bigger star than his parents. And not just the media people or Bollywood buffs, even the insiders and his family members are too obsessed with this cutesy cotton ball. From cookies and dolls being made on his name to paparazzi getting paid Rs 1500 per photograph of Taimur, he has really revolutionised the media culture in India.
Taimur Ali Khan's pictures and videos go viral in no time after they surface online. And his latest pics are no less than the previous ones. This time, Taimur Ali Khan was snapped along with his parents- Kareena Kapoor Khan and Saif Ali Khan outside a gift shop by the name of Playhunter. Bebo looked stunning in her casual tee, blue denim and white sneakers. Abba Saif and Taimur twinned in blue with the munchkin stationed on Saif's arms. Seems like Taimur Ali Khan wanted a toy for himself? Take a look at the pictures and guess what's little Tim is holding in his hands:
At a Facebook Live session organised by nutritionist, Rujuta Diwekar recently, Kareena Kapoor Khan had shared what does Taimur Ali Khan eat. Bebo was quoted as saying, "Only (home-cooked food). I am a hyper-paranoid. He goes to birthday parties and he is not allowed to eat outside. But that’s also wrong but ya...” To which Tim’s abba, Saif Ali Khan intervened and said, “He eats chips though.” Kareena further continued, “khichdi, idli dosa... healthy kind of home-cooked food.” She also added that she changes Taimur's diet plan every month, “So I sit on a plan also. Every month I alternate it accordingly. Whatever fruits and vegetables he should be eating in the month... he quite enjoys it. Today, he actually had saag (spinach) for lunch and he normally didn’t like it but I have been shoving it down his throat. So now he’s got used to it. So he actually ate the whole bowl.”
In an interview with the Hindustan Times, Saif Ali Khan had talked about what Taimur thinks of the media people around him, “Timtim is more media-savvy than either me or Bebo (Kareena Kapoor Khan). He calls the photographers 'Mediawale'. He thinks Mediawale is a name! One of his favourite games is to point my camera at people. He will say 'khichik khichik khichik' and pretend to be 'Mediawale'!”
Kareena Kapoor Khan, in an interview, had recently shared her concern about the media's obsession over Taimur. She had revealed, “Because what am I supposed to go screaming, what am I supposed to do. So it's like dangerous for us, the test is in us. The pressure is on Saif and me more than him. He is still growing up he is still small, he is registering that he's being clicked because they are calling his name. But the pressure is more on the parents because we are worrying constantly. It's up to us to give him a normal upbringing.” (Don't Miss: Disha Patani Reveals The Qualities She Admires About Her Alleged Beau Tiger Shroff)
Kareena had talked about the same in another interview and had said that in the future, she might send Taimur Ali Khan to a boarding school, “Maybe I’ll send him to a boarding school when he is 13. I don’t know, growing up as a star kid, going to the schools of Bandra and Juhu. He needs to see the world.”
Saif Ali Khan once shared in an interview, how it is to have Taimur as their travel partner, “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."
Saif Ali Khan, during an interview a few months ago, had revealed that every producer now wants to involve Taimur in film promotions, Saif was quoted as saying, “Every producer I am working with has half-jokingly said, ‘Haha can we put him?’ With white in his hair (he sports salt and pepper hair in Baazaar). With Kaalakaandi, they wanted to put rubber bands. In Hunter, they want to put that Naga Sadhu wig on this poor guy.”
Further joking about how he doesn’t mind minting money through Taimur and Kareena doesn't, Saif had retorted, “My wife says, ‘Don’t be so cheap. You can’t sell your son (Taimur)’. I am like, ‘Why not? Let’s sell him’. Seriously yaar, he is anyway there on the internet. I am just using this platform to say if anybody has any good nappy ads or anything... at a very reasonable price...it’s not reasonable, it’s quite expensive actually. And, I won’t give him the money also. I’ll give him some cash for his education, I am already giving it to him. And I’ll spend the rest!” (Recommended Read: Erica Fernandes Can't Take Her Eyes Off Parth Samthaan In Their Latest Picture, Check Inside)
