Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan welcomed their baby boy a few days ago and named him Taimur Ali Khan Pataudi. Internet was very quick to troll the celebrity parents after they learned from whom the name ‘Taimur’ was inspired. Well, the 10-day-old baby continues to make headlines on the social media.
Kareena Kapoor Khan’s uncle Rishi Kapoor recently had slammed all the trolls asking them to mind their own business after Taimur’s name was trending everywhere. He had tweeted, “Why are people so bothered what the parents want to name their child please? Mind your business, it’s got nothing to do with you. Parents wish! Alexander and Sikandar were no saints. They are common names in the world. Apna kaam karo na tum. Tumko kya takleef hai?”
Now, Rishi Kapoor’s another tweet evoked extreme reactions once again. The actor compared the name of his grandnephew to South African cricketer Jonty Rhodes daughter, who has been named India by the cricketing star. He shared a picture of Jonty Rhodes with his daughter, explaining why he named her ‘India’. Rishi tweeted, “You caught it right! Thank you Johnty Rodes for that. Only parents have the right to name their kids whatever.”
As usual, Twitteratis were not happy with the veteran actor’s justification and had a field day slamming him and Kareena Kapoor Khan.
So what did u @chintskap and your family learnt from Taimur? Rape, killing, looting, torturing ?
