Soha Ali Khan and her darling daughter Inaaya Naumi Kemmu were snapped in the city recently and the tiny tot was in an especially chirpy mood. She looked at the paparazzi, smiled at them and even expressed curiosity at all the clicking. Does this behaviour look similar? But of course. Inaaya’s cousin Taimur is exactly like this in front of cameras. Looks like little Inaaya has started recognising the media just like Taimur as she looks directly straight in front of the cameras in these photos. Ain’t she cute?
Speaking to Elle magazine, Soha Ali Khan revealed that she and her big brother Saif Ali Khan make sure that both Taimur and Inaaya get to spend a lot of time with each other. We have seen on countless occasions both Inaaya and Taimur parents get together with kids to spend some quality time by the pool or park. Soha spoke about their bond and said, “Inaaya and Taimur enjoy each other’s company — he’s very curious and he keeps watching her. Sometimes the two will hold hands or touch faces. We take them to Amrita Arora’s home which has a lush garden with swings and slides, or sometimes at Kareena’s home, where we’re playing with Taimur’s train sets. On other days, we take them to play football or to swim.”
The reason they do that is because they do not want to restrict their kids from enjoying a normal childhood. Soha spoke about this in the same interview. She said, “I grew up in a big family with my cousins and grandparents around me. We also had a lot of dogs and huge gardens where we played cricket and slept under the stars. Today, Kunal and I live alone, and our families are far away, so I feel Inaaya misses out on a lot. What’s more, Inaaya and Taimur are always surrounded by the press wherever we go. I feel childhood is all about innocence — even if the parents have chosen to have a public life, the children should be allowed some privacy.”
