One of the most adorable new star kids on the block is Taimur Ali Khan Pataudi, the son of chote Nawab Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan. Born in December 2016, Taimur has had limited sightings in public, but the cuter-than-cute baby became a fan favourite in no time and has garnered a fan following of his own.
The name of the little one 'Taimur' kicked off controversy when the happy parents announced it as the public began comparing the name the one of a former invader of the nation.
A few choice comments by the parents and other Bollywood well-wishers later, fans disregard the name and only hope for more pics of little Taimur.
Recently, Taimur was spotted in the arms of an attendant on the way to the home of his aunt Karisma Kapoor.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed the nation in his monthly 'Mann Ki Baat' radio address for the first time since completing 3 years in power and highlighted the importance of constructive criticism in strengthening democracy and assured that mistakes and shortcomings will be rectified.
Defending the monthly address which had come under fire for being allegedly 'one way communication' PM Modi said that the monthly radio address enabled him to become a member of every family in India.
"Audit and assessment of the performance of the present government in the last three years is happening all over on newspapers, social media or TV for the last 15 days. There have been many surveys and several opinion polls. I see this entire process as a very healthy sign," Modi said.
"Constructive criticism strengthens democracy, for an aware nation, an awakened nation, this churning is very important," he said, referring to the surveys which highlight both praise and criticism of his government's record so far.
He said the work done by his government was tested on every touchstone and analysed by every segment of society.
"This is a great process in democracy. I firmly believe that governments must be accountable in democracy and the public at large must be provided with report card of works done," he said, expressing gratitude for the critical and important feedback.
"The mistakes and the shortcomings once highlighted can be rectified. Whether something is good, little less effective, or bad, whatever it is, one has to learn from it and move ahead in life, putting the learning from it into practice."
"Some people take 'Mann Ki Baat' as a monologue and some criticise it from a political angle," he said admitting that he never thought that programme launched two years ago would make him a member of every Indian family.
"Now I feel as if I'm conversing with my family while sitting at home," said Modi, describing himself as "ordinary citizen" who, like all, is "influenced...
Congress Likely To Project Rahul Gandhi Or Priyanka Gandhi As Its CM Candidate For UP

Struggling to arrest its falling fortunes in electorally important Uttar Pradesh, Congress may carry out a massive rejig of its state leadership next fortnight and announce its Chief Ministerial candidate who in all likelihood will be a "Brahmin".
There are also views within a section of the party that a turnaround in Uttar Pradesh is possible only if either of the Gandhis--Priyanka or Rahul--takes the lead in the state polls.
However, there has been no indication from the party so far that it is inclined to field any of the two Gandhis in the assembly polls in the state where Congress is considered to be on a weak wicket.
Poll strategist Prashant Kishor is learnt to be in favour of either of the Gandhis taking the lead in the state election and, if they do not agree, a well-known Brahmin face should be projected as the chief ministerial candidate.
Sources close to the leadership indicated that key decisions about the rejig are likely to be announced after May 19, the day counting of votes for the assembly polls in Assam, Kerala, Tamil Nadu, West Bengal and Puducherry takes place.
The Pradesh Congress Committee Chief, the Congress Legislature Party Leader and even those managing the state affairs at the AICC level could be changed, the sources say.
Making a serious attempt to stage a comeback in the state to which most of the Congress Prime Ministers belonged and where it has been in wilderness after the surge in Mandal-Mandir poitics, the party has roped in Kishor, who is learnt to have strongly favoured a Brahmin as the party's face in the polls due next year.
The name of former Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit has also been considered, sources said.
Kishor, who had managed the hugely successful election campaigns for Narendra Modi in the 2014 Lok Sabha polls and Nitish Kumar-led grand alliance in the Bihar assembly elections last year, has been drafted by the Congress to draw up a campaign strategy for the key cow belt state.
There is a thinking in the party that since Brahmins, who constitute 10 to 12 per cent of the electorate, are the only vote bloc Congress can hope to make inroads into, projection of a person from the community as chief ministerial face would help the party regain their support. With the advent of Mandal-Mandir politics, Brahmins, who had traditionally voted for Congress, shifted allegiance to the BJP.
