Little Taimur Ali Khan has, perhaps, become a bigger celebrity than his film star parents Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan. The paparazzi and social media seem to be simply smitten by the cherubic kid.

Kareena, who was felicitated with the Lokmat Maharashtrian of the Year award last evening, was asked by reporters what profession she would like her son to choose.

She said, "I wouldn’t want to choose, I hope he chooses," adding, "I would want Taimur to be a cricketer."

The family was in Rajashan recently where Taimur was snapped watching and enjoying his father play cricket.

Taimur’s grandfather, the late Mansur Ali Khan 'Tiger' Pataudi, was a legendary Indian Test cricketer and captain while his great-grandfather, the late Iftikhar Ali Khan Pataudi, played Test cricket for England.

In his early years, Saif Ali, too, wanted to play cricket. He gave up those dreams after he was struck by a cricket ball and broke a finger.
