So, who does Taimur look like exactly, Kareena or Saif? Here’s what daddy has to say


Kareena Kapoor Khan and Saif Ali Khan are being asked about their little munchkin, Taimur at every platform. At such a small age, young Pataudi has already become a social media phenomenon, with shutterbugs and masses going absolutely gaga seeing him. Whenever a photo of the handsome kid surfaces on the internet, the Twiteratti gets into a debate if the munchkin is more Kapoor or Pataudi. However, it is not only you who is confused. Daddy Saif Ali Khan also couldn’t make up his mind if his son looks more like him or his wife Kareena Kapoor Khan.

During an interview with a leading entertainment portal, Saif was asked who does Taimur look like more, to which he laughed and said, “Someday he looks like her, someday he looks like me. He looks like a Chinese version of her.” When the interviewer asks him do you mean a ‘Chinese Kareena’, he reverts, “Not Chinese, let’s say Mongol. (Laughs) But Mongol sounds like he is missing a chromosome. Let’s say Timurid.”

Interestingly, Kareena too in her interviews has broached the same subject and has shared that how she and Saif always argue if Taimur is more Pataudi or Kapoor. During a chat show, she was heard saying, “I think he (Taimur) is a perfect mix of Saif and me, more so like me, of a Kapoor, I think so. I think he looks exactly like my dad because I think I look like my dad. He is more like my dad.” She has also said, “Saif and I keep arguing that he is more like a Pataudi and I am like no, he is like a Kapoor. But of course, his gorgeous sea blue eyes which he has taken from my grandfather and Lolo and that is amazing.”

As of now, Taimur is with mommy Kareena in New Delhi where she is shooting for her upcoming film, ‘Veere Di Wedding’. Meanwhile, be at airport or when to meet his nani or aunt, Soha Ali Khan, Taimur is always being followed by the paps and almost everyone knows of his whereabouts. Both Kareena and Saif have no qualms of Taimur being subjected to so much media attention. However, Saif has always maintained that while Taimur will have a lot of privileges owing to the fact that he’s the son of two very popular celebs, he said, that he will have to be aware of his responsibilities.
