Taimur Ali Khan has been the centre of attention since he was born. For parents Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan, they both feel that as a child he receiving an unhealthy amount of media attention.
Reported on The Indian Express, the ‘Sacred Games’ (2018) actor has express that children should be able to lead a normal life without the constant media glare.
There have been some reports that Khan apparently filed a complaint against the paparazzi for creating a ruckus outside his home, but in a statement Khan dismissed this, suggesting it may have come from the neighbours. “I did not initiate any police complaint against the photographers. Kareena and I live in a respectful residential area and are a part of the larger community, thereby we do also have a responsibility to emotionally support our neighbours when they feel a disturbance to them is being caused and to be fair, their sentiments are understandable.”
The statement further read, “We have always shared a very respectful relationship with the paparazzi. We understand that it’s their livelihood. However, it’s important to understand that kids should enjoy the basic right of growing up in a normal atmosphere out of and away from constant media glare.”
“I believe I am well within my right as a father to choose to not pose for the cameras when I have my son with me or to inform the photographers that the constant flashes can hurt his eyes. As media figures, we have to live with the attention and we accept that. But our kids shouldn’t be subjected to it,” concluded the statement.
