Taimur Ali Khan is a threat to Akshay Kumar, says mom Kareena


Taimur Ali Khan Pataudi is internet’s favourite child. The pictures of the little munchkin is all over and he brings smile to everyone’s face. Commenting on her son’s popularity, mom Kareena Kapoor Khan says Taimur has the capability to beat Akshay Kumar in the race of popularity.

At the Lokmat Awards in Mumbai, where Kareena Kapoor Khan was honoured with Power Icon Award, the actress was quizzed about being considered a superstar. She looked at Akshay Kumar and said, “Akshay, Taimur is a threat to you, I am telling you. Even in your fan following he can surpass you. If you release a movie with him, then his collection is going to be more than Akshay. That is something Akshay, it’s an open challenge. (laughs).”

She further added, “I would like him to do something with his life and then I would like people to appreciate him. He is still very small and he should actually be given a chance rather than having so much of this kind of pressure that is already on him. It is so scary,” she said. 

Constant media attention on Taimur makes Kareena paranoid at times. Bebo said, “Of course, as a mother I am paranoid. Every mother is paranoid about their child. But the more I think about it or think about putting a kala theeka or not send him out of the house, I think that is being over paranoid, so I am just trying to let him have a normal life.”

At the same event, the proud mom Kareena Kapoor Khan also said that love to see Taimur as a cricketer when he grows up. She said, “I wouldn’t want to choose, I hope he chooses,” she further added, “Well, I would want Taimur to be a cricketer.”
