'We never hid Taimur's face', Kareena Kapoor on media scrutiny


Taimur Ali Khan Pataudi is media’s favourite child. Wherever, the little munchkin goes, media chases him but Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan has been very sporty about it and never tried to hid their child from media.

When asked about the massive popularity of Taimur, Kareena stated, "We view it as something socially irresponsible because we have been such good parents, we haven't shied away, we never hid Taimur's face. In Hollywood, they don't allow children's faces to come (publish). But because Saif and I took the modern approach, we can't do that." The 38-year-old actor said both Saif and her don't want to cover Taimur's face when they are out as it will "probably scar him more." "He would think 'what is happening?' I don't want him to grow up in that fear. I want him to grow up and fly, that's what parents want their children to do. I can't keep him away." Kareena said just a "little bit more responsibility" should be there because he is a child.

"That would be nice from the media. I have never stopped them. But the constant attention, scrutiny (isn't good). Hopefully, he's going to be a cool kid like his parents, be more interested in music and sports. That's what we want," she said on the sidelines of a recently concluded event.

Kareena said she has become a lot more responsible after becoming a mother and feels her life now revolves around Taimur. "It's important for mothers to have the knowledge of vaccination, they have to get the child immunized. It's important for mothers to have more knowledge because, for a newborn infant, they are taking that responsibility. That's why my life is in Taimur's hands because everything's about him. I hope people understand that and take it in a positive way," she added.
