- It's got nothing to do with you, tweeted Rishi Kapoor
- Kareena and Saif welcomed their son Taimur on December 20
- Twitter thinks the name is in honour of Delhi destroyer Timur
What's in a name? Quite a lot, discovered Kareena Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan when they announced the birth of their son, named Taimur Ali Khan, on Tuesday. Twitter has been outraging over the choice of name ever since, believing Taimur to be named after Mongol invader Timur or Tamarlane
, who destroyed Delhi in the 14th century. Now, some 24 hours of the name being hotly debated, Kareena's uncle Rishi Kapoor has reminded Twitter that it's nobody's business but the parents. "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!" wrote Rishi Kapoor, the first person from the family to comment on the controversy.
Rishi Kapoor, who is Kareena's father Randhir Kapoor's younger brother, tweeted:
Word, Mr Kapoor.
Politician Omar Abdullah was also a voice of reason:
Baby Taimur's arrival was announced by a statement from Kareena Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan that read: "We are very pleased to share with you all the wonderful news about the birth of our son: Taimur Ali Khan Pataudi, on the 20th of December 2016. We would like to thank the media for the understanding and support they have given us over the last 9 months, and of course especially our fans and well wishers for their continued affection. Merry Christmas and a happy new year to you all."Bua
Soha Ali Khan and "proud maasi
" Karisma Kapoor shared these posts hours after Taimur was born:
Karisma, Soha and several other family members were photographed visiting Kareena and Taimur
at Breach Candy Hospital in Mumbai.
This is Kareena Kapoor's first child while Saif Ali Khan is a father of two - Sara, 23 and Ibrahim, 15 - from his marriage to actress Amrita Singh which ended in 2004. Saif married Kareena in 2012.
