Recently, chhote nawab, Saif Ali Khan sarcastically revealed that how the producers of his films are always asking him to use his adorable son Taimur to promote his movies and even Saif agrees that it is not a bad idea.
“Every producer I am working with has half-jokingly said, ‘Haha can we put him?’ With white in his hair (he sports salt and pepper hair in Baazaar). With Kaalakaandi, they wanted to put rubber bands. In Hunter, they want to put that Naga Sadhu wig on this poor guy.” –Saif Ali Khan
Therefore Bebo Taimur’s mom Kareena Kapoor is not open to such suggestions.
“My wife says, ‘Don’t be so cheap. You can’t sell your son (Taimur)’. I am like, ‘Why not? Let’s sell him’. Seriously yaar, he is any way there on the internet. I am just using this platform to say if anybody has any good nappy ads or anything… at a very reasonable price…it’s not reasonable, it’s quite expensive actually. And, I won’t give him the money also. I’ll give him some cash for his education, I am already giving it to him. And I’ll spend the rest!” –Saif Ali Khan
Chitrangada questions “On what?” Saif replies, “On holidays in Switzerland yaar!”
Jokes apart Saif is very well aware of country’s obsession with his son.
“Media’s constant attention to him does not really bother me, but it would be better if it was not there. If the media likes it, people like it, I am okay with it; but I won’t be interested in someone else’s kids so much. On one level, it is nice that he makes people laugh and smile; but on another level, why is so much attention given to a kid? Why are we so interested in a little kid so much? I don’t understand it. Our job is to keep him balanced. I think Indian parents like us, like my parents, have a slightly tough time trying to put good moral values and basic family values into kids who grow up with too much attention. And it is possible. So, we hope that he is going to grow up fine and we’re very conscious of it.” –Saif Ali Khan
