Everyone recognises Taimur’s maid also, Randhir Kapoor slams media


Last night during Raj Kapoor Awards for Excellence in Entertainment, Randhir Kapoor lashes out at the paparazzi for the constant media attention on his grandchild, Taimur Ali Khan Pataudi (Saif and Kareena’s son) and spoiling his normalcy.

“Certainly, it (normalcy in childhood) has been robbed. Everyday, I get up in the morning and I see a picture of my grandson in newspapers. The paparazzi is permanently stationed below the house. Now everyone recognises his maid also! That’s because of the paparazzi,” the veteran actor said.

Agreeing with his big brother, Rishi Kapoor said, “There is so much social exposure today. Earlier journals and magazines used to come every fortnightly. Now, every day we have news about films.”

The actors blamed media for giving rise to the trend of ‘gym and airport’ looks. “The media has created this. Now, you have the ‘airport look’ and ‘gym look’ also,” said Randhir, to which Rishi added, “There is a ‘chautha look’ (funeral look) too. You go to a funeral and everyone is like ‘look at his shade of badge, the glasses.”
