Taimur Ali Khan, the week-old son of Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor will make his television debut soon. Really?
Yes, the youngest nawab is likely to feature in the second edition of popular show Living With the Superstar, which chronicles the life of actor Saif Ali Khan. According to DNA website, the show will have cameras following the Omkara actor on his trips abroad and showcase his life before the world.
Within hours of his birth, Taimur became a trending topic with some sections in social media questioning the star couple over the choice of his name. Some people linked his name to 14th century Turkish invader Timur The Lame, who is accused of killing 10,000 people during his conquest of Delhi.
However, Bollywood fraternity stood in open support of Saif-Kareena and slammed those criticising the baby over his name. Kareena’s uncle and veteran actor Rishi Kapoor too lashed out at the trolls, saying it was nobody’s business to comment on Taimur’s name.
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!

Adding further, he also said that names like Alexander and Sikander were common and that he was also not a saint.
Former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Omar Abdullah too supported the couple, saying that Saif and Kareena had the right to choose their baby’s name and it should not be somebody’s concern.
TV debut or no TV debut, the junior nawab is already a star.
