Saif Ali Khan & Kareena Kapoor name their baby Taimur Ali Khan

Saif Ali Khan & Kareena Kapoor with their baby Taimur Ali Khan

Kareena Kapoor recently gave birth to a baby boy, he has been named  "Taimur" Ali Khan. Taimur is said to be a derivitive of Persian word, which means "iron" or strong". Whole of Bollywood joined in wishing the baby & the parents. The baby is a cute pink bundle of Joy. 

Karan Johar, Shashi Kapoor, Kapoor family & Pataudi family were among the first to tell the world on twitter & other social media.

Controversy: In an interview some time before the delevery, Kareena had revealed that Saif was a history buff and would choose something from history for the kid's name.

Taimur the Lame was one of the fiercest warriors, he was also a terrible person in history, responsible for the death of over 17 Million people in and around Central Asia.

Some argued that it hurts sentiments of Indians especially because Taimur the lame killed 100,000 Indians in a day for religious reasons. Naming the kid Taimur (or Aurangazeb for that matter) is like naming the kid Hitler in Israel, Osama in USA, they argue.

Others reason that 'it is just a name and should not be considered in historical context, Let's wish the baby a healthy & happy life ahead.'
