Bollywood actors Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor have been incessantly trolled for naming their sons Taimur Ali Khan and Jehangir Ali Khan. The couple finally decided to react to the trolls online.
The name of their first son Taimur was erroneously linked to the Turkic invader when they first revealed their child’s name to the public. A similar controversy unfolded after the couple named their second son Jehangir.
In a recent interview, Saif opened up about his feelings regarding the hate that is spread by the trolls. He said, “The world is not an equal place; people are not equally happy. We’re very privileged people, and I think we’re good people. We pay our taxes, we’re legal people, and we work hard to entertain and we do well, and we contribute a fair amount of positivity to this world. And to comment on people who are contributing negativity and dividing and being terrible is really not worth it. I try to stay off reading that and focusing on something else.”
Opening up about her stance on the issue, Kareena Kapoor said, “Honestly, these are names that we just liked; it’s nothing else. They are beautiful names and they’re beautiful boys. It’s unfathomable why somebody would troll children. I feel terrible about it, but I have to just focus and get through it. I can’t be looking at my life through the trolls.”
On the work front, Saif Ali Khan is currently awaiting the release of his film Bhoot Police with Arjun Kapoor and Jacqueline Fernandez. Meanwhile, Kareena Kapoor will be next seen in Laal Singh Chaddha opposite Aamir Khan.
