Veteran actress Sharmila Tagore recently opened up on the stardom that her grandkid Taimur Ali Khan enjoys at the age of two-year-old. The actress was present at an award show where she was felicitated with the Lifetime Achievement Award for her contribution to the Hindi cinema. While interacting with the media at the event, she said that she’s very ‘old fashioned’ and doesn’t support the idea of exposing kids to the cameras so much.
Taimur is paparazzi’s favourite. The cameras are always hounding the little star-kid the moment he steps out of the house. His granny Sharmila is quite against this. She told the media, “This is the age of social media. I am very old fashioned. I don’t think children should be exposed to all this.” The Aradhana star also talked about her granddaughter Sara Ali Khan‘s foray into the movie business. She appeared full of praises for Sara. Sharmila said that she’s highly proud of Sara’s stance in her interviews.
The proud grandmother was quoted saying, “I am so impressed with Sara in all her interviews more than the films. Of course, she is a wonderful actress but all her interviews show how humble, how polite, how savvy she is. I am very proud of her.” She went on to reveal the piece of advice that Sara gave to her about Taimur receiving so much attention around. She said that Sara told her, “If you can’t beat them, join them.”
Earlier, when Taimur’s mother Kareena Kapoor Khan was asked about her son getting the paparazzi’s attention, she said she wants them to leave him alone. Kareena was on Arbaaz Khan’s chat show when she said, “I think sometimes they cross the line, especially when it comes to Taimur. The way they want to know everyday what he is eating, where he is going, what he is wearing, is he going to playschool or to a gym. So I am like once in a while it is fine but everyday? What is the reason that you have to see this child?”
