It’s unfathomable why somebody would troll children: Kareena on criticism revolving around the names of her sons


Kareena Kapoor Khan finally broke her silence on the criticism she and her husband, actor Saif Ali Khan, received regarding the names of their sons. The couple was heavily trolled as many social media users attacked them for naming their sons Taimur and Jehangir.

The couple found themselves in the middle of controversies as people blamed them for naming their sons after tyrants.

In a recent interview, Kareena opened up about the trolling and said that she felt ‘terrible’ that her family and children were subjected to it.

“Honestly, these are names that we just liked; it’s nothing else. They are beautiful names and they’re beautiful boys. It’s unfathomable why somebody would troll children. I feel terrible about it, but I have to just focus and get through it. I can’t be looking at my life through the trolls,” she said.

Many people blamed them for naming their older son Taimur after Turkic conqueror, Timur, who invaded Delhi in 1398. The heavy criticism made Kareena and Saif consider renaming him.

Four years later, when the couple welcomed their second son, they chose to keep his name under wraps for several months before it was revealed in her self-help book, Kareena Kapoor Khan’s Pregnancy Bible. The reveal caused another uproar online with a certain section of the internet accusing the couple of naming Jehangir after the 17th-century Mughal emperor.

Kareena’s sister-in-law Saba Ali Khan also came in support of the couple. Saba shared a picture of Kareena and Jehangir from their recent trip to the Maldives and wrote, “When a mother carries her child within her and gives him or her life… only she and the father…are allowed to decide… who how and what the child will grow as…And the name.”

“No one…no one else, including other family members, who may gladly suggest, have a say on anything!” she added.
