As if 100 plus fanclubs on social media weren’t enough, Kareena Kapoor Khan and Saif Ali Khan’s little superstar Taimur Ali Khan now also has a doll modelled after him. Producer Ashwini Yardi shared a photo of the same stating how a Kerala store has been selling this Taimur-styled doll. ‘Adorable’ or next level creepy is something that people on Twitter cannot decide ever since the photo of this doll has gone viral.
When Saif Ali Khan was informed about this Taimur doll, he seemed pretty amused as he said, “Maybe I should trademark his name…The least they could do is send me one!. I am glad people are benefiting from him. I only ask God for his safety and happiness in return,”. However, Kareena wasn’t of the same opinion when she saw the doll. ”
In interaction with Mumbai Mirror, Bebo admitted how she didn’t know how to react looking at the doll at first as she said, “Taimur can’t run away from his popularity and neither can his parents. When I saw the doll, I wondered what was I supposed to say. But Saif pointed out that it is because people love him so much and such things are a blessing for him. There is so much 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 is 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 media to back off, no matter how annoying it gets after a point. It’s tough on him as it’s on Saif and me.”
