Mumbai: While the Pataudi and Kapoor households are on cloud 9 upon the arrival of the latest member, Bebo and Saif’s nawab Taimur Ali Khan Pataudi, social media critics have not taken a liking to Saifeena’s choice of name and have accused them of many things, encouraging tyranny and brutality being some of them.
The ever-judgmental Twitterati has even accused the star couple of ‘being a jihadi’. An angry fan wrote, “Education, Name, Fame, Secularism, Democracy, Money doesn’t change the mindset of a Jihadi. #TaimurAliKhanPataudi.”
It may not be humanly possible for Saif and Kareena to defend their choice since both of them are not on social media, not that they ought to, but that does not mean the families will sit in a corner and suffer the virtual torture in silence.
Yesteryear actor, Rishi Kapoor, who is also Kareena’s uncle, did not let the Twitterati get away with their insensitive comments and uncalled for criticism towards the baby.
An irate Kapoor Sr 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!”
But, the ‘Kapoor & Sons’ star being the forthright person that he is, did not stop at this subtle remark. He replied to anyone and everyone who has denounced the name saying that it is the ‘parent’s wish’ and that nobody has the right to comment on it.
In a series of tweets, kapoor vented out at the naysayers, often dropping the ‘f bomb’ to silence them.
For the uninitiated, Taimur is the name of a 14th century tyrant who was notorious for resorting to evil means like genocide and was also highly oppressive by nature.
Ironically, the word ‘Taimur’ means iron and has nothing to do with brutality of any form.
Kareena gave birth to her son on December 20.
