Indian Journalist Barkha Dutt called out the criticism on Kareena Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan’s son Taimur’s name by a section of the Indian population.

Sharing an old interview with the Jab We Met actor, she wrote: “At @WeTheWomenAsia townhall Kareena Kapoor shared me how much the vile focus on Taimurs name had scarred her, now i see the same crap over her new born’s name. How toxic, how poisonous, how ugh can people be. Listen to her here and HAVE SOME SHAME.”

The 3 Idiots star shared that she and Saif were overwhelmed about it initially, adding that she will never forget it and called it a ‘ghastly’ experience and it ‘scarred’ her deeply as a mother.



Kareena stated that what she names her child is completely her ‘discretion.’

According to Bollywood Hungama’s report, it’s actually Jehangir Ali Khan as revealed in the captions for the pictures of her baby son in the last few pages of Kapoor’s new book.
