Kareena Kapoor Khan and Taimur Ali Khan were clicked at the Mumbai airport on Wednesday as they returned from Pataudi Palace. While clicking the mother-son duo, the paparazzi did not call Taimur like they usually do. It was reported that Saif Ali Khan and Kareena had asked the photographer to not call Taimur while clicking him whenever spotted in the city. The little star kid has been always under the media scrutiny since the time he was born.

When asked how does she look at the massive popularity of Taimur, Kareena stated, "We view it as something socially irresponsible because we have been such good parents, we haven't shied away, we never hid Taimur's face. In Hollywood, they don't allow children's faces to come (publish). But because Saif and I took the modern approach, we can't do that." The 38-year-old actor said both Saif and her don't want to cover Taimur's face when they are out as it will "probably scar him more." "He would think 'what is happening?' I don't want him to grow up in that fear. I want him to grow up and fly, that's what parents want their children to do. I can't keep him away." Kareena said just a "little bit more responsibility" should be there because he is a child.

"That would be nice from the media. I have never stopped them. But the constant attention, scrutiny (isn't good). Hopefully, he's going to be a cool kid like his parents, be more interested in music and sports. That's what we want," she said on the sidelines of a recently concluded event.

Kareena said she has become a lot more responsible after becoming a mother and feels her life now revolves around Taimur. "It's important for mothers to have the knowledge of vaccination, they have to get the child immunized. It's important for mothers to have more knowledge because, for a newborn infant, they are taking that responsibility. That's why my life is in Taimur's hands because everything's about him. I hope people understand that and take it in a positive way," she added.
