A new photo of Taimur Ali Khan is quite the rage on the internet today. The Pataudi munchkin in visibly longer hair – his hair can be seen tied in a tiny ponytail – looking at a photo of dad Saif is warming the hearts of people on social media.
Just as people were beginning to wonder where was the Pataudi munchkin (we have not seen much of Taimur in the last couple of days, which is a *long* time by Taimur standards), social media rose to the occasion yet again, surprising us with this photo of the kid.
Netizens are also pointing out what they think is the striking resemblance between Taimur and Ziva, Mahendra Singh and Sakshi Dhoni’s daughter.
Taimur, who turned a year old on December 20 last year, has become the paparazzi’s favourite star kid. Both Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan, his parents, are not too keen on keeping him away from the media glare because they think it would make things ‘chaotic’.
In earlier interviews, Saif said how Taimur would eventually get used to the media attention.
“Kareena and I knew there would be media interest in our son. It’s hard to bring up kids without the attention; I don’t know how he is going to react to the attention when he grows up,” he said last month.
Saif also said that he did not find the paparazzi attention intrusive.
“Photographers make money, they are not that intrusive, not yet! They are not pointing into the bathroom. We get enough personal time. We just give them a pose ourselves then there is no drama. The relation is pretty much amicable till now,” said the actor in an interview last month.
Taimur is Saif and Kareena’s first child together. Saif has two children with Amrita Singh, from his first marriage, Sara Ali Khan and Ibrahim Ali Khan Pataudi.
