Taimur Ali Khan has grown up watching the paparazzi mayhem. From being curious looking at the flashes of the cameras, to now, waving at the paps, this star-kid has broken the internet time and again without even realising.
The height of his popularity was when toy makers in Kerala noticed the toddler's stardom and the love that his fans shower, and decided to make dolls inspired by him.
His parents, Kareena and Saif Ali Khan are thankful for all the love their child receives, but, they also worry about not being able to give him a normal life.
Kareena spoke to Mumbai Mirror about her son's popularity, paparazzi and how she felt when she saw the doll modeled on li'l Tim. The actor said,
"Taimur can’t run away from his popularity and neither can his parents. When I saw the doll, I wondered what I was supposed to say. But Saif pointed out that it’s because people love him so much and such things are a blessing for him. There is so much of genuine warmth for our son that it’s bad to stop people from clicking his pictures or making his dolls. But they should understand that he’s just a two-year-old child and needs a normal life. Both Saif and I are struggling to give him that and will continue to do so without telling the paparazzi to back off, no matter how annoying it gets after a point. It’s as tough on him as it is on Saif and me."
As much as we all love to see his pictures on our Instagram feed, we also understand how it all must be really startling for little Tim.
However, we can't help but wonder if this toy has already made it to the Pataudi residence?!
