Kareena Kapoor on Jeh’s name controversy, lagging behind: “We are talking about innocent children”
Bollywood actress Kareena Kapoor Khan, who recently published her book Pregnancy Bible, welcomed her second baby Jeh in February. She took to Instagram on Friday to share a new photo of Jeh, while saving her face from flashlights.
Kareena managed to shield Jeh’s face from the cameras but the the baby’s name has been controversial. Speaking to the same, Kareena spoke to India Today and said that with the world going through a pandemic, there is therefore ‘no room for negativity’ in her life. Previously, she and her husband Saif Ali Khan had been targeted for naming their son Taimur.
Kareena said, “Bollywood celebrities, in all situations, are an easy target. I am a very positive person. I am very happy and content and want to spread positivity. In times like Covid, I can’t think of trolls, I can’t think of any form of negativity. There is no room for negativity in our lives because look at what the pandemic has taught us. It brings us closer, it brings the world closer together, we have to stand up for each other. This is how I think, we all think and I think we should all think.
Controversy around Jeh’s name erupted after reports claimed that Kareena’s book had her name mentioned as Jehangir. A similar controversy arose when Kareena and Saif Ali Khan welcomed their firstborn Taimur. The trolls had claimed that the child was named after a “Turkish invader”.
“We have two innocent children we are talking about. We’re going to stay happy and positive and that’s how I’m going to see life, ”Kareena said of the controversy.
Laal Singh actor Chaddha has said that excessive attention has been paid to his choice of naming her baby because there is so much more going on in the world that should be on Twitterati. “We are currently in a global pandemic. I don’t think the most important thing is “what my son is doing” or “what is my son’s name” or “what exactly is going on with my son”. I don’t think that’s the goal, ”she shared.
On the work side, Kareena will then be seen in Laal Singh Chaddha alongside Aamir Khan. The film is an official adaptation of Tom Hanks’ Forrest Gump. She also recently announced a project with Hansal Mehta and Ekta Kapoor. The Jab We Met actor said she was interested in working on the OTT platform and had “read a lot of scripts,” but was still looking for the right one.
