The star kid is just two year old, but Taimur Ali Khan is the cynosure of the Bollywood paparazzi’s eyes. However, Taimur’s father and Bollywood actor Saif Ali Khan got angry recently when the photographers went clickety click on seeing him at the airport here recently, his father warned them off saying “the child will go blind”.
“Bas karo yaar, bachcha andha ho jaayega (Stop it, the child will go blind),” Saif told the media, eliciting laughter from some of them. Taimur nonchalantly sat atop his father’s shoulders, wearing a blue shirt, shorts and a red cap adding contrast to his look. He waved at the shutterbugs like he usually does when he gets all their attention.
When the paparazzi urged the couple to pose, Saif promptly said: “Aap ko lena hai toh lo, ye pose karna thoda ajeeb hai (You want to take photos, you take them, it’s weird to pose).”
Saif Ali Khan has often talked about how he doesn’t understand people’s obsession over Taimur. He has also expressed his worry on wanting him to lead a normal life and childhood. Paparazzi has been requested to not click his photographs, which Saif knows cost Rs 1500 per picture. He is apparently at the top spot in the rate card, Saif had revealed on Koffee With Karan.
During a chat show recently, a Twitter user told Kareena that Taimur’s nanny is paid more than bureaucrats and she replied, “How do they know that? This question should be addressed by a ministry.” She further said on a serious note, “There is no price for anything as long as your child is happy and safe. There is no price for that.”
A toy store in Kerala is where this ‘Taimur’ doll was seen. Film producer Ashwini Yardi took to Twitter to share a photo of the new doll in town, Taimur. Ever since, netizens have been intrigued by the similarity between Tamiur and the doll, and the fact that someone actually made a doll out of the star kid.
