Highlights

  1. Saif said Taimur is a "blue eyed boy"
  2. "He is a genetic treasure trove," he added
  3. "It's beyond me," said Saif
Taimur Ali Khan Pataudi recently turned one and we don't want this star-baby to grow up any time soon. Being adorable is Taimur's superpower and about the "blue eyed boy" (Saif Ali Khan's words), the doting father addressed the star-kids popularity and said: "He is a genetic treasure trove, he is. He has got a bit of Rabindranath Tagore, he is a bit of Raj Kapoor, a bit of Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi, little bit of Bhopal. It's beyond me," reported IANS. Taimur is Kareena Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan's first child. Randhir Kapoor (Raj Kapoor's son) and Babita are Taimur's maternal grandparents while Sharmila Tagore and the late Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi (who was popularly known as Tiger Pataudi) are his paternal grandparents. Sharmila's maternal grandmother Latika Tagore was the granddaughter of Rabindranath Tagore's brother Dwijendranath Tagore.
 


Apart from Taimur's crazy popularity on social media, the little one featured in headlines soon after he was born and his name was announced. Speaking to NDTV last year, Saif revisited the controversy and said: "I've known a couple of people called Taimur while growing up and there was drama involved, it was just a nice name. It means iron and it's a strong, beautiful sounding name. Yes, I am aware there is a Mongol ruler who was possibly a little violent but I think that was the whole point really, if you want to be a conquering general you have to be a little violent. I want to say I've not named Taimur after him."

Kareena and Saif have never appeared to be overly shield Taimur from the media glare, and as and when Taimur's unreleased photos have gone viral, the Royal couple handled it with quite some ease. When a photo of baby Taimur from when he was just a few months old was circulated on social media, Saif just had two words to say: "That's okay". He added: "That the part of Internet where there's no secrecy or privacy. And you know, I don't know, maybe there shouldn't be."
