Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan's son Taimur Ali Khan is one of the biggest internet sensation of the country. While the parents of the little munchkin are quite worried about him getting papped, now his grandmother and veteran actress Sharmila Tagore reacted on his popularity as she told SpotBoye, “I must confess I’m worried about him a bit. We in this family have all had our share of media attention. They place you on a pedestal and then suddenly drop you. At the moment Taimur is not affected because he’s too young to understand what’s going on. But later when he’s older and if the attention is taken away he might get affected. So we are a little concerned . But as Sara said, what can we do about it? Frankly without the media we are not alive in today’s day and age.”
When asked why don't audience see veteran actresses on the silver screen, she replied, “This is not something peculiar to me. It happens to all actresses beyond a certain age in our cinema. Even Madhuri Dixit who is a lot younger has not done anything much in spite of Dedh Ishqiya. Whereas the rules are different for Mr Bachchan. He has directors like Shoojit Sircar calling him ‘Sir’ and writing roles for him.”
Explaining the reason behind this, the birthday girl further added, “That’s because of age and health. Rajesh Khanna passed away. Others like Shashi Kapoor are ailing. Dharmendra continues to be so much in demand in spite of his age. He is such a good human being. I guess there are some important personality traits common to people born on 8 December.”
Sharmila Tagore was last seen in Imran Khan and Deepika Padukone's Break Ke Baad, which was released in 2010. It was bankrolled by Kunal Kohli under the banner of Kunal Kohli Productions.
