Believe it or not, 2-year-old Taimur Ali Khan has his own doll figurine in the toy stores of Kerala now. The fan-frenzy that Taimur commands easily out-distances the popularity of his parents Kareena Kapoor Khan and Saif Ali Khan, a fact of which they are rightly proud.
But, a ‘Taimur’ doll?!
When I reached out to his bemused father, Saif responded, “Maybe I should copyright Taimur’s name. But seriously, it is fine. I hope the dolls sell well. It’s like having your face on a pack of sparklers during Diwali.”
While the doting protective and slightly worried father grapples with their little son’s growing popularity, they can only hope and pray for a saner more sensible media attitude to his tender years.
Sighs Saif, “I only ask they bless him in return, and that he’s safe and happy in life.”
