One of the power couples of Bollywood, Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor often come under the scanner. However, for the past few months, they have been grabbing headlines after being at the receiving end of criticism for naming their sons Jehangir Ali Khan and Taimur Ali Khan. Well, this time, reacting to all the negativity and criticism, in an interview, Saif stated that they are good people and contribute a fair amount of positivity to this world. 

When was asked about the trolling and netizens’ outrage against their kids’ names, he told a daily, “The world is not an equal place; people are not equally happy. We’re very privileged people, and I think we’re good people. We pay our taxes, we’re legal people, and we work hard to entertain and we do well, and we contribute a fair amount of positivity to this world. And to comment on people who are contributing negativity and dividing and being terrible is really not worth it. I try and stay off reading that and focussing on something else.

Just today, Saif’s sister Saba Ali Khan strongly hit back at the trolls who were criticising the couple for keeping Jehangir. She affirmed that no one has a say on this and it solely depends on the child’s parents and family.

She wrote on Instagram, “Momma n Jaan Jeh. 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! It’s her soul that has nurtured that Baby. PARENTS are the only one with RIGHTS.  Think it’s a reminder for EVERYONE to respect that. Today … tomorrow. Forever!!!! Love you Bhabs n Baby Jeh. Kiss from buajaan too!
