Saif Ali Khan’s children Sara Ali Khan and Ibrahim Khan from estranged wife Amrita Singh did not attend Taimur Ali Khan’s first birthday at Pataudi Palace. Here’s why they skipped the do

Kareena Kapoor Khan and Saif Ali Khan’s first child together, Taimur Ali Khan turned one on December 20. The occasion was brought in at Saif’s ancestral Pataudi Palace with the Khan and Kapoor family in attendance. However, what raised eyebrows were Sara Ali Khan and Ibrahim Khan‘s absence from the family gathering. Sara and Ibrahim are Saif’s children from his first wife Amrita Singh. Though, initially, there were reports of Amrita not in favour of Kareena and Sara’s growing proximity. Their bond proves the truth of Sara’s friendly relationship with Kareena.

Sara was occupied with her debut film, Kedarnath’s shoot and had some prior wok commitments, which couldn’t be avoided. Therefore, the budding actress had to give Taimur Ali Khan‘s first birthday a miss. A source told Pinkvilla, “Fact is, Sara was prepping with the Kedarnath crew as she has been continuously shooting for the film for over two weeks now. While Taimur’s birthday was on December 20, her schedule was for the next few days after that and her director had wanted Sara to stay back for some workshops.”

Talking about Ibrahim skipping the do, the same source told the entertainment portal, “Ibrahim is in town on his Christmas vacay as he’s been pursuing further studies in London and he too decided to stay back with his sister in Mumbai as they are very close and wanted to spend some time with her.” However, Sara and Ibrahim attended Kareena and daddy Saif’s Christmas celebration at their Bandra residence.

Even aunt Soha Ali Khan couldn’t attend the toddler’s birthday as she was busy promoting her maiden book- ‘Perils of Being Moderately Famous’.

Taimur Ali Khan’s birthday celebration was attended by Sharmila Tagore, Babita, Randhir Kapoor, Karisma Kapoor with her kids, Kiaan and Samiera, Amrita Arora with husband Shakeel Ladak and kids.

A few days ago, Saif, Kareena, Karisma, Babita and everyone left for Pataudi Palace- the ancestral Palace of Saif Ali Khan, to bring in the adorable kid’s first birthday. Aunt Karisma has been giving us the insights from the grand celebration through her Instagram. And we can’t stop gushing over the lovable picture posted by Karisma. She wrote, “Happy 1st birthday our little bundle of joy! #weloveyou#ourbabyboy #babynawab #familyovereverything #throwback#specialmoments.”

Kareena’s close friend and filmmaker Karan Johar also wished the baby boy in his unique style. He wrote, “Happy birthday Taimur!!! I hope you enjoy your times with my babies as much as i have with your mom and dad!!! (sic)”

Recently, Taimur Ali Khan was seen bonding with Karan’s twins- Yash Johar and Roohi Johar at baby Adira Chopra’s (Rani Mukerji and Aditya Chopra’s daughter) birthday bash.

Taimur’s momma, Kareena’s best friend, Amrita Arora Ladak posted an adorable picture of the little lad and wished him.

Also, Kareena Kapoor‘s dietician, Rujuta Diwekar has dedicated an ecological gift to Taimur. She has built a small forest in the name of Taimur Ali Khan in Sonave.


A little forest for Taimur A little boy can never have enough of birds, bees and butterflies and so we have put together a small forest as a birthday gift for the little big boy, Taimur, in Sonave. It’s a special forest, one that thrives on intercropping and i hope that as he grows he too will thrive in and celebrate a diverse society. A society where people live together through and due to their distinctions. The forest has about 100 trees on a 1000 sq ft plot. The trees are as young as Taimur, even younger actually, and each one of them is a local, native, climate resilient specie. It will be a forest of the super foods of the future. There are 3 jamuns, 1 jackfruit, 1 amla, 40 Bananas, 14 Moringas, 1 Kokum, 1 Papaya, 5 Seetaphal, 2 Ramphals, 2 Nimbu trees. Besides these it grows 3 different types of native pulses and many Mirchi, Ginger, Turmeric and kari patta plants. Not to mention the green leafy veggies and the genda phools that grow in between. The forest is inspired by Padma Shri Subhash Palekar’s zero budget natural farming where one tree grows symbiotically off another and thus is thrifty on one’s pocket. The forest will become a home for pollinating agents like the butterflies, bees, birds and earthworms. It will help nurture the soil, fix back the nitrogen and minerals in the soil that it grows on, preserve the water table and look elegant and beautiful while doing it all. Here’s to living sustainably! Happy Birthday. #taimuralikhan

Kareena Kapoor Khan says she is proud and happy that Bollywood filmmakers are now showing women in a progressive way in movies.
The actor attributes this change to the influx of young writers in films. In an interview to PTI, Kareena says, “One can definitely see a change in the way women have been portrayed on screen in the Hindi film industry.

“The roles are now written by young directors, who have been successful in highlighting the personality of women who are hardworking and successful. Films have now been portraying women in a more progressive manner.”

The 36-year-old actor, who was last seen in “Udta Punjab”, welcomed her first child, Taimur Ali Khan, in December last year.
Talking about balancing her work and motherhood, the actor says, “I have always maintained a personal and professional life but now it’s more difficult as Taimur is too young. I try to strike a balance. I have a great support system with (husband) Saif and my family.”

Kareena believes a modern Indian woman plays diverse roles in her life and she considers herself to be one. “She is a multifaceted woman, lives her life to the fullest and fulfils her choices with confidence and style. I am proud to be a married, independent and working woman. I carry that with great honour and pride. Despite being married, I work and have my own identity.”

Kareena is all charged up to begin work on her next project “Veere Di Wedding” alongside Sonam Kapoor and Swara Bhaskar.

However, she did not comment on the reports of her signing a biopic by Omung Kumar, another movie with Salman Khan and Karan Johar’s next.

Meanwhile, the “Bajrangi Bhaijaan” star is the muse of designer Anita Dongre’s autumn winter campaign #IamAND, which celebrates the multifaceted personality of the modern Indian woman.

“AND is one brand that has changed the fashion scenario in the country. With its new campaign, the brand conveys a very strong message of celebrating the multifaceted personality of the modern Indian woman, which I truly identify with,” says Kareena.

taimur-4-1496739399Kareena Kapoor Khan is enjoying her motherhood phase and also balancing her work like a boss. She is getting back into shape and making herself ready for her movie comeback post the birth of her son Taimur Ali Khan.

Recently, when a leading magazine asked Kareena about her life as a working mother, she stated, “I think it is amazing. After having a good day at work, I am waiting to see my son home. It’s quality over quantity. Some can stay at home all day but the idea is to keep the focus going, whatever it is you are doing at the time. If you like what you do at work it’s even better. Acting is my passion and if I go to work, I feel like a more enriched mother. Women multitask the best.”

She spoke about how motherhood has changed her. Bebo said, “It is an amazing experience. There’s a part of me and Saif in the world and he is my responsibility and I am going to be showing and teaching him new things.”

The talented actor was asked about what is the important thing she will be teaching Taimur about respecting women. To which she replied, “Taimur is going to grow up with a working mom. My sister, his masi is also a working woman. He has my mother to look up to, my mother-in-law who is still working woman. So, he is going to grow up in that atmosphere and learn to respect women in that sense. He also has a wonderful nanny, again another working woman who looks after him so he will be growing up seeing the power of women from as early as seven months old.”

Well said!

saif_shahrukhKareena Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan‘s beautiful son, Taimur Ali Khan has been making news since before his birth. While the controversy and Internet trolls surrounding his name were in bad taste, many celebs took a stand for the couple. Saif has earlier responded to claims that said Taimur is similar to the Turkish conquerer Timur, and he yet again clarified the similarity in an interview with NDTV, where he said:

I’m aware that there’s a certain amount of Islamophobia in the world today and as Muslims, if we don’t somehow own it then who will? I can’t very well name my son Alexander and realistically can’t name him Ram. So why not a nice Muslim name and bring him up with secular values so that people meeting him say ‘what a nice guy’ and that’s the end of the name

He further elaborated his point, and he did it perfectly well, as he said: I am aware that there is a Turkish ruler who is possibly a little violent. That was Timur and this is Taimur. It might sound similar because it has similar roots. Also, to judge the past by today’s lens is a little far out. A name doesn’t really mean anything. Asoka is a violent name then. There’s Alexander too.

Speaking of the same, Saif Ali Khan has revealed that the Turkish emperor’s one of the ablest generals was his son whose name was “Shah Rukh”. He added that if people get stuck with it then they have to change everyone’s names.

Saif said, “One of Taimur’s most able generals was his son and his name was Shah Rukh. So if we start getting into what names are right or wrong, then we would be changing everyone’s names. Like Calcutta airport.”

This comment brought instant laughter among the audience present!

He also shared that he didn’t name his son based on the emperor’s name but because it means “iron” and he grew up hearing it. He then said that he has heard about the violent Turkish emperor and that the conquering ruler has to be little violent.

Saif further revealed that he wanted to give his son a nice Muslim name and wants to bring him up with secular values so that whenever people meet him they don’t focus on his name but just say ‘what a nice guy’.
