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...
Bollywood's favourite darling Ranveer Singh has taken a break from the shooting of Sanjay Leela Bhansali's magnum opus 'Padmavati' where he plays the role of Alauddin Khiliji alongside alleged lady love Deepika Padukone to go on a vacation, solo.
Recently, Ranveer suffered from a head injury on the sets of Padmavati and was rushed to the hospital due to heavy bleeding and left with a few stitches to the head. Recovering from his head injury, Ranveer took off for a solo vacation to London after making a quick stop to meet Deepika Padukone.
Before you jump to conclusions on why Ranveer went alone for a vacation, this is the reason: the entire vacation is sports themed! A self-confess sports aficionado, the vacation began for Ranveer by watching the Arsenal v/s Chelsea FA Cup final match in Wembley on Saturday after which he plans to catch the India vs Pakistan ICC Champions Trophy match on June 4 in Birmingham.
Since the vacation has been planned according to a previously scheduled break from shooting for Padmavati, Ranveer won't be missing out on any work and will resume shooting from June 8....

Shani Shingnapur Row: HC Asks Maharashtra Govt To Protect 'Fundamental Right' Of Women
NEWS WORLD INDIA | 0
April 1 , 2016 , 15:29 IST
The Bombay High Court on Friday directed Maharashtra government to take pro-active steps for ensuring compliance of law to prevent discrimination against women on entry to places of worship, saying "it is the fundamental right of a woman" and the government should protect it.
The court, which disposed of a PIL challenging the bar on entry of women in the sanctum sanctorum of Shani Shingnapur temple in the state's Ahmednagar district, said that it can
only pass a general direction to the government and cannot go into individual and specific cases.
The Maharashtra government assured the High Court that it is completely against gender discrimination and the provisions of Maharashtra Hindu Place of Worship (Entry Authorisation) Act shall be scrupulously implemented.
"Secretary of Home Department, Maharashtra, will ensure due compliance and enforcement of the provisions of the Act, and in order to ensure that the policy and purpose of the Act is fully carried out, they (Home department) will issue directions to all superintendents of police and collectors in each district of Maharashtra," a division bench of Chief Justice D H Waghela and Justice M S Sonak said.
"The government shall take all necessary steps to implement the Act," it further said.
"Ultimately it is the fundamental right of a woman and the government's fundamental duty to protect their (women) right," Chief Justice Waghela said.
The state's acting Advocate General Rohit Deo, in a submission to the high court, said that a circular or a directive shall be issued to all district collectors and Superintendents of Police, making them aware of the provisions of the Act.
The accepted the government's statement. The government's submission was made following high court's rap to the government on Wednesday on the issue, during the hearing of a PIL challenging the prohibition of entry of women in the Shani Shingnapur temple.
"The acting Advocate General has assured the court that the state government is against gender discrimination and keeping in view Articles 14, 15 and 25 of the Constitution.
The government can take pro-active steps to ensure that the fundamental rights are fully realised and not allowed to be encroached upon by any authority," he observed.
The high court further said that it can only pass a general direction to the government and cannot go into individual and specific cases.
The court said if any person has any grievance that the Act is not being implemented, then he or she can approach local authority with their complaint.
Under the Maharashtra Hindu Place of Worship (Entry Authorisation) Act, 1956, if any temple or person prohibits any person from entering a temple then he or she faces a six-month imprisonment.
The acting AG, however, clarified to HC that if a temple in the state does not allow any person, irrespective of their gender, inside the sanctum sanctorum, then this Act and
its provisions will not be of any help.
"However, if a temple allows men in the sanctum sanctorum but prohibits women, then this Act and its provisions can be used," Deo said.
Notably, the high court had on Wednesday observed that if men are allowed in a place of worship, then women should also be permitted as no law prevents them from doing so.
The HC, while underlining the need for giving equal access to women, also stated that any temple or person imposing restrictions can face a six-month jail term under a Maharashtra law, and asked the government to make a statement if it is worried about the sanctity of a deity.
The court had also said that the government should give wide publicity to the Act and issue circulars, informing the general public at large about the Act and its provisions.
It had directed government pleader Abhinandan Vagyani to take instructions and make a statement today, on whether or not it will ensure that women will be allowed to enter the
The PIL was filed by senior advocate Nilima Vartak and activist Vidya Bal.It said that the prohibition is arbitrary, illegal and in violation of fundamental rights of citizens.
The debate over the issue in Maharashtra escalated after a woman last year tried to enter and offer prayers at the Shani Shingnapur temple in 'breach' of the age-old practice of prohibiting entry of women This had prompted the temple committee to suspend seven security men and the villagers to perform purification rituals.
Subsequently, the Bhumata brigade led by Trupti Desai had on January 26 launched a high-voltage campaign to breach the ban at the temple and vowed to carry on with its movement
for gender justice.
Besides, around 150 women under the banner of Bhumata Brigade had last month left for the famous Trimbakeshwar temple in Nashik district seeking to break the bar on female devotees at the inner sanctum of the Lord Shiva shrine. Their attempts were, however, foiled by the police.
