Previously, Saif Ali Khan opened up about the trolls and the scrutiny they faced over Taimur’s name. He even mentioned that he considered changing the name but Kareena Kapoor Khan stopped him.
Saif Ali Khan told Times Of India, “I haven’t told anyone about this — I thought for a second about changing his name. For a couple of weeks. And Kareena was a little against it, and she said, ‘People respect you for your opinion and you can’t’… So I said, yeah, but it’s not about people. I don’t want him to get unpopular.”
