The controversies and debates about the benefits and privileges of being a star kid is an evergreen topic that does not seem to have an ending. From growing up rich to getting film offers even before they are out of college, people have discussed the lovely perks of being a kid with a famous personality. But how often do we talk about the constant media attention and public scrutiny that these kids have to bear?
In an interview with Times Of India, Kareena Kapoor Khan, who is currently seen in Advait Chandan’s Laal Singh Chaddha opposite Aamir Khan, talked about the paparazzi constantly clicking her five-and-a-half-year-old son, Taimur Ali Khan’s pictures. Since the news of his birth, the toddler has been the centre of attention and a face for star kids. His outings with Kareena and Saif Ali Khan, and pictures of him going to school or Karate classes have been paps-favourite for a long time.
The 41-year-old revealed that Taimur ‘does not like’ getting clicked constantly and often asks her ‘why do they like taking my pictures’. The actor said that Taimur understands that his parents are famous but fails to wrap his cute little mind around the fact of him being clicked as he is not famous.
”And I told him that yes you’re not famous, you are no one; so he is still figuring that why they’re taking his pictures. Of course he gets a little rattled, he’s just five and a half and he’s been constantly clicked but we’ve also been open about it because I can’t go and stop it,” she said. The actor also expounded on the public’s perception of him as a star.
”But he’s not a star, he’s an innocent kid, he has no idea about it as long as he gets to live his life,” The actor was all praise for her toddler kid as she said, ”I think he’s quite a chilled guy, he kind of understands he’s quite ahead of his age. Also now, he can sit and have conversations like his father is explaining something to him, he’s bright so let’s see I hope he gets to enjoy his life the way he wants”.
