Everyone’s favourite and one of the most popular kids in the country today is none other than the chote Nawab, Taimur Ali Khan Pataudi. This one-year-old little munchkin has swooned everyone over his cuteness and charm. Even the minutest of the details of this cutie pie creates a buzz among his fans.
With more fan-following than his parents, Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan, Taimur has the stardom that most people crave for years. Now we stumbled upon something really interesting about him. In a podcast with Rajeev Masand and Anupama Chopra, Saif revealed the nickname of his younger son, Taimur. And it’s Tim. Isn’t it cute?
Further talking about Taimur’s overnight stardom, “Saif said, You have to sit him down, the minute he can understand it. And it'll start with calling the people at home and not yelling. It'll be manners, it'll be Please, Thank You, Aadaab. It'll be discipline from young age. At least we know these things. These Bombay kids are out of control. He'll be very well behaved. And honestly if he does his namaste right, he'll score points. Have you seen Sara's aadaab when she was younger? This is it. This is what we need, a nice aadaab from Tim. TIM by the way.”
Talking about the genetics Taimur has, he remarked, “He's blue eyed. He's a genetic treasure trove. He is. He is got a bit of Rabindranath Tagore, he's got a bit of Raj Kapoor, he's got a bit of Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi, he's got a bit of Bhopal...I don't know..he's beyond me. He's gone. Let's see what happens.”
Taimur has always scored more in his fashion meter with his cute airport looks. While Taimur is old school name, Tim is more on the contemporary side. In an earlier interview Saif revealed Taimur’s favourite food. Yes, this little one already has his preferences for food, and as Saif said, “At the moment I think it’s mashed pear (nashpati) and carrot. The first time he ate solid food after milk was quite an adventure. We gave him dal and mixed potato and he was like ‘hmmm, not bad’. It is fun to feed him.”
He was further quoted as saying, “I have been leaving my house early and I have started waking him up at around 7. He finishes his feed — he has just started on solid foods — and we spend about 20 minutes together. I read to him or put on some music, or nursery rhymes.”
About how Taimur starts his day, Saif retorted, “Taimur, incidentally begins his day by listening to aarti. It’s his nanny’s idea. And if I return by 8 pm and he is awake, we spend another 20 minutes together. He begins his day with bhajans and ends his day by listening to Chopin and Tchaikovsky. Other than that he just, burps and farts all day, just like me. (laughs).”
Yayy! Saif revealed the nickname of his little munchkin and we are loving it. How do you like little Nawab’s nickname?
