Saif Ali Khan’s and Kareena Kapoor Khan’s adorable little munchkin Taimur Ali Khan is a star in his own right. The little kiddo can give any star a run-for-his-money with his popularity. In fact, the paparazzi have permanently stationed themselves outside his residence to catch a glimpse of the toddler as he goes about his daily life. Taimur’s popularity is such that there is a doll after him and recently Kareena joked about Taimur entering Bollywood and stated that his entry will send Khiladi Kumar’s popularity for a toss.
So, when Saif appeared on Arbaaz Khan’s chat show Pinch and came across a comment on Twitter about Taimur’s Bollywood debut he could not hold back his amusement but still gave an answer like a concerned father. He said, “Everyone I speak to, everybody around thinks that all the kids want to join films and they do. Most of our kids want to do that which is a good thing, a great thing but I don't know why I am a little concerned about that. I feel there should be other choices...somebody might want to say I want to become a doctor or a lawyer kind of stuff. Maybe I am sounding very old-fashioned but anyway, I am not interested in making his debut in Bollywood and neither is he.”
He further added, “This is the way it happens...sometimes they see their parents, everybody in the family is an actor. So I don't have an issue with anyone doing anything as long as they have a good job and are good people and are well brought up. But there must be so much pressure on my kid also...Like poor Taimur I think will have pressure, like I had to be a cricketer or something. What if he (Taimur) is not interested....Anyway, there are a lot of good wishes for the kid and I would like to thank everyone for that."
Well, that nullifies one speculation that Taimur is not going to don the greasepaint anytime soon and whenever he does it will be his own decision if he ever wants to follow his famous parents’ footsteps.
