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....

Panama Papers: 500 Indians Named Including Top Celebs In Global Tax Evasion Scheme
NEWS WORLD INDIA | 0

[caption id="attachment_170466" align="aligncenter" width="700"] Russian President Vladimir Putin(File Photo)[/caption]
A massive leak of 11.5 million tax documents has exposed the secret offshore dealings of aides to Russian president Vladimir Putin, world leaders and celebrities including Barcelona forward Lionel Messi.
An investigation into the documents by more than 100 media groups, described as one of the largest such probes in history, revealed the hidden offshore dealings in the assets of around 140 political figures -- including 12 current or former heads of states.
According to report in The Indian Express, which was part of a coalition of media outlets investigating the documents, says its eight-month investigation of over 36,000 files has revealed around 500 Indian names on the firm's list of offshore companies, foundations and trusts. The newspaper says it has checked the authenticity of over 300 addresses.
Indians were not allowed to float overseas entities before 2003. In 2004, for the first time individuals were allowed to remit funds up to a limit. In most of the cases, companies were set up long before the rules were changed in 2013, when individuals were allowed to set up subsidiaries or invest in joint ventures under the Overseas Direct Investment window.
The list includes bollywood actors like Amitabh Bachchan, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, DLF's K P Singh along with nine other members of his family, Gautam Adani's elder brother Vinod Adani to Indiabulls promoter Sameer Gehlaut and Apollo Tyres promoter.
The report also names two politicians -- Shishir Bajoria from West Bengal and Anurag Kejrival, the former chief of the Delhi Loksatta Party.
The Panama Papers leak also reveals cases involving the government as well.
These include cricket franchise deals and, in several cases, linkages to those who have previously been under CBI or Income Tax scrutiny.
The vast stash of records was obtained from an anonymous source by German daily Sueddeutsche Zeitung and shared with media worldwide by the International Consortium of
Investigative Journalists (ICIJ).
The investigation yielded 11.5 million documents from around 214,000 offshore entities, the ICIJ said. The leaked documents came from Mossack Fonseca, a Panama-based law firm with offices in more than 35 countries.
Though most of the alleged dealings are said by the ICIJ to be legal they are likely to have a serious political impact on many of those named.
Among the main claims of the ICIJ investigations:
-- Close associates of Putin, who is not himself named in the documents, "secretly shuffled as much as USD2 billion through banks and shadow companies," the ICIJ said.
-- The files identified offshore companies linked to the family of Chinese President Xi Jinping, who has led a tough anti-corruption campaign in his country, the ICIJ said.
-- In Iceland, the files allegedly show Prime Minister Sigmundur David Gunnlaugsson and his wife secretly owned an offshore firm holding millions of dollars in Icelandic bank bonds during the country's financial crisis.
-- The law firm of a member of FIFA's ethics committee, Juan Pedro Damiani, had business ties with three men indicted in the FIFA scandal: former FIFA vice president Eugenio Figueredo, as well as Hugo Jinkis and his son Mariano who were accused of paying bribes to win soccer broadcast rights in Latin America.
-- Argentine football great Messi and his father owned a Panama company, Mega Star Enterprises Inc., a shell company that had previously not come up in Spanish investigations into the father and son's tax affairs.
Also in the world of football, Francetvinfo named UEFA president Michel Platini as the beneficiary of a Panama-based tax company, adding however that no illegal activity was
Platini's communications service said in a statement sent to AFP that "all of his accounts and assets are known to the tax authorities in Switzerland, where he has been a tax resident since 2007".
The revelation of the "Panama Papers" detailing the off-shore structures of many wealthy
clients is a "crime" and an "attack" on Panama, the law firm at the heart of the scandal has said.
"This is a crime, a felony," Ramon Fonseca, one of the founders of the Panamanian firm Mossack Fonseca, said yesterday.
"This is an attack on Panama because certain countries don't like it that we are so competitive in attracting companies," he told AFP.
