Not just the entire country but even his own family cannot get enough of Taimur Ali Khan. The incredibly cute son of actors Kareena Kapoor Khan and Saif Ali Khan is also the apple of his uncle Ranbir Kapoor’s eye.
In a recent interview to entertainment journalist Rajeev Masand, Ranbir revealed how he is one of Taimur’s biggest fans. Rajeev asked him about how the paparazzi hounds Taimur wherever he goes and how Ranbir had a much less chaotic childhood on comparison.
Ranbir confessed that he himself stalks his nephew online for photos. “To be honest, I stalk his pictures because I am also obsessed. Because when you see him it just warms your heart. And when he has his haircut or how he walks... I am a Taimur fan,” he said.
“I have had the opportunity and the good fortune to hold him and it felt quite surreal. It felt like holding royalty,” he added.
Ranbir also talked about his own childhood and how he would ‘bask in the glory’ of his parents’ fame when he was young. “We had our own share of public spotlight. Of course, camera phones weren’t there, paparazzi wasn’t there. The kind of attention you got in school, when you went outside, people knew that me and my sister were Rishi Kapoor’s children. It felt good in a way that people looked at us in a nice way. We had a nice time basking in our parents’ glory,” he said.
While Taimur is on a vacation in London with his parents, Ranbir is shooting for Brahmastra and waiting for his next film, Sanju’s release on June 29.
