Believe it or not 2-year old Taimur has his own doll figurine in the toy stores of Kerala now. The fan-frenzy that Taimurcommands easily out-distances the popularity of his parents Kareena Kapoor Khan and Saif Ali Khan, a fact of which they are rightly proud.
In fact Taimur’s popularity rivals that of the three Khan superstars Shah Rukh, Aamir and Salman.
But a ‘Taimur’ doll???!!!
When I reached out to his bemused father Saif responded, “Maybe I should copyright Taimur’s name. But seriously, it is fine. I hope the dolls sell well. It’s like having your face on a pack of sparklers during Diwali.”
While the doting protective and slightly worried father grapples with their little son’s growing popularity, they can only hope and pray for a saner more sensible media attitude to his tender years.
Sighs Saif, “I only ask they bless him in return, and that he’s safe and happy in life.”
