No Police Complaint By Saif Ali Khan Against Photographers; Says, 'I Have A Right To Refuse You From Clicking Taimur'
Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan’s li’l prince, Taimur is a hot favourite of the nation. The media cannot stop obsessing over the cutie patootie and the moment he is spotted anywhere in public, photographers can’t stop clicking. While both Saif and Kareena haven’t straightaway objected to the constant media attention that’s showered on Taimur, as parents they too feel concerned at times, when it gets a bit too much.

Probably, that’s what happened recently, when the trio was headed for a holiday to Pataudi and the photographers incessantly started clicking pictures of Taimur. A concerned papa told them, “Bas karo yaar, bachcha andha ho jayega” (Stop it please, the child will go blind). Soon after this incident, reports started floating around that the actor filed a police complaint against the paparazzi.


However, clearing the air on these reports and the incident, Saif in a statement says, “I did not initiate any police complaint against the photographers. Kareena and I live in a respectful residential area and are a part of the larger community, thereby we do also have a responsibility to emotionally support our neighbours when they feel a disturbance to them is being caused and to be fair, their sentiments are understandable.”


Saif adds that being Taimur's father, he reserves the right to stop the photographers from clicking his son if and when he wants to. “We have always shared a very respectful relationship with the paparazzi. We understand that it’s their livelihood. However, it’s important to understand that kids should enjoy the basic right of growing up in a normal atmosphere out of and away from constant media glare. I believe I am well within my right as a father to choose to not pose for the cameras when I have my son with me or to inform the photographers that the constant flashes can hurt his eyes. As media figures, we have to live with the attention and we accept that. But our kids shouldn’t be subjected to it."
