Kareena Kapoor Khan and Saif Ali Khan’s firstborn, Taimur Ali Khan, has been a favourite of the paparazzi ever since he was born in 2016. He has his own fan following on social media. Recently, a member of the paparazzi, Varinder Chawla, shared that there was a time when 40–50 people would follow Taimur to his school and tuition. It was only after Saif’s intervention that they took a step back.

Explaining how paparazzi got obsessed with Taimur, Varinder, during an interview with In Conversation with Ishan’s YouTube channel, said, “One of Kareena’s best traits is that she never said no to a photographer. She would graciously oblige the paps. We would spot Taimur outside their residence, and she had no objection. Demand had increased so much, what could we do?”

He added, “We began following him 24/7. Whether he was going to school or tuition, we were there. We even followed him while he played. Bacche ki personal life humlogon ne disturb karna shuru kar di thi (We started disturbing the child’s personal life). That’s when they requested us to avoid certain places like school and tuition.”

The photographer also remembered one particular incident when he was riding pillion, trying to spot Taimur, and saw almost 40–50 people hovering around Taimur’s car.

“Once, I went out to spot Taimur while riding pillion on a team member’s bike. Taimur was on his way to tuition, and I noticed there were 40–50 people on bikes following him. I was shaken. I wondered, “Where did these 50 people come from?” Someone told me, “Just wait and watch.” Some climbed onto the gates, and others surrounded his car as if they were going to attack him. I was scared and thought, ‘No, this is wrong,'” recalled Varinder Chawla.

That was the day when he understood the plight of Saif and Kareena. He added, ‘If I was so frightened, imagine what the family felt. Even Taimur’s nanny got worried. Saif called us and requested that we avoid following Taimur to school. That’s when we decided to respect their privacy. We set a limit and agreed not to cross that boundary. They have a personal life!’

Earlier, Kareena had shared that Taimur doesn’t like to be photographed. In an interview with Filme Shilmy, she said, ‘He just looks like me but he has Saif’s naughtiness and Tim (Taimur) has Saif’s sense of humour, but he’s a bit more reserved, like he doesn’t like being clicked, more like his father. Jeh’s more like me. I mean in terms of look and a little more vibe, but his naughtiness comes from Saif.'”
