OMG..Saif links Taimur with SRK, know how!

Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan become proud parents of a  baby boy last year, and the two decided to name him Taimur Ali Khan, and ever since he has been making headlines.

In what is a truly heartbreaking admission, actor Saif Ali Khan told Times Of India that he briefly considered changing his newborn son's name to something non-controversial after he and wife Kareena Kapoor were trolled for naming him Taimur.

 When asked if he was still being questioned about Taimur's name, Saif said, "Yes, even today. My daughter told me, why don't you say that you have not named him after Timur Lang, say that's Timur and this is Taimur. I said it still sounds similar. She says just say they have same roots. The name is nice and it sounds good and it means something nice but it is not named after that guy. Well, yes, the name is the same, but the name also predates the person called Timur Lang. Incidentally, Timur Lang's son was Shah Rukh, who is the guy who supposedly said we should actually plunder India. A lot of fighting was done by his sons, but nobody has a problem with the name Shah Rukh (laughs)."

Saif Ali Khan’s daughter convinced him to clear all the confusion about junior Nawab’s name being similar to the Mongol invader. “Yes, even today. My daughter told me, why don’t you say that you have not named him after Timur Lang, say that’s Timur and this is Taimur. I said it still sounds similar. She says just say they have same roots. The name is nice and it sounds good and it means something nice but it is not named after that guy. Well, yes, the name is the same, but the name also predates the person called Timur Lang,” said Saif.
