For the longest time, Saif Ali Khan had kept his silence about the issue even though Kareena Kapoor-Khan and his mother Sharmila Tagore had expressed their reservations about the paparazzi hounding Taimur Ali Khan and mobbing him whenever he goes out of his house. Even his sister Soha Ali Khan had expressed her reservations about photographers constantly flashing at her child Inaaya’s eyes. She even lost her cool once when the photographers wouldn't stop exposing their flashbulbs in front of the little one.
The other Bollywood moms are known to cover their child's eyes when photographers refuse to click photos without using flashbulbs. This time around, Saif Ali Khan was seen retorting at the paparazzi when they wouldn't stop using their flashlights at Taimur Ali Khan.
As per an IANS report, Saif was en route Pataudi Palace in Bhopal with Taimur and Kareena Kapoor. At the Mumbai airport, the actor, albeit calmly, snapped at the shutterbugs for incessantly taking pictures of Taimur with the camera flash on.
"Bas karo yaar, bachcha andha ho jaayega (Stop it, the child will go blind)," Saif told the camerapersons following him. Taimur, comfortably seated atop his father's shoulders, waved as he moved through the sea of photographers.
Saif didn't say anything more but quickly vanished inside the airport with his son on his shoulders. Taimur looked uber-cute in a blue shirt paired with shorts and a red cap.
