In a recent interview, Bebo addressed this trolling over the names of her sons and said that it is unfathomable why somebody would troll children. “Honestly, these are names that we just liked; it’s nothing else. They are beautiful names and they’re beautiful boys. It’s unfathomable why somebody would troll children.“
In July, social media had speculated that Saif and Kareena have shortened the baby’s name Jehangir to Jeh to allegedly avoid controversies. The couple received huge backlash for naming their first son Taimur Ali Khan. They courted controversy in 2016 for naming their firstborn after an invader. Reportedly Taimur was inspired by Timur – the founder of the Timurid Empire in Persia and Central Asia, who invaded India in 1398. However, they denied all claims and asserted that Taimur means iron.
Kareena’s sister-in-law, Saba Ali Khan, too, spoke out in her support. Recently, Saif’s sister Saba Ali Khan also shared a photo of Jeh and Kareena from their Maldives trip on social media and penned a strong post about the naming issue. In her note, Saba slammed the trolls and claimed that only parents have the right to make decisions about their kids. She wrote, “When a MOTHER carries her child within her and gives him or her LIFE… ONLY she and the father ….are ALLOWED to decide.. who how and what the child will grow as….And The NAME.No one …NO ONE.. else, including other family members, who may gladly suggest, have a say. On anything! It’s her soul that has nurtured that baby. PARENTS are the only ones with RIGHTS.“
