Jeh or Jehangir: Kareena snubs controversy around her son’s name

Bollywood actor Kareena Kapoor Khan, who recently released her book on pregnancy, welcomed her second baby Jeh in February. She took to her Instagram on Friday to share a photo with the little one with his face still covered. Although Kareena has managed to protect Jeh’s face from paparazzi, her baby’s name has still landed her in controversy. Addressing the same, Kareena spoke to India Today and said that with the world going through a pandemic, she has “no place for negativity.” Earlier, she and husband Saif Ali Khan became a target of trolls for naming their first son Taimur. Kareena said, “Bollywood celebrities, in every situation, are soft targets. I’m a very positive person. I’m very happy and content and I want to spread positivity. In a time like Covid, I can’t think of trolls, I can’t think of any form of negativity. There’s no place for negativity in our lives because look at what the pandemic has taught us. It’s bringing us closer, it has brought the world closer, we have to stand for each other. That’s the way I think, all of us think and I think all of us should think.” The controversy around Jeh’s name erupted after reports pointed out that Kareena’s book Pregnancy Bible, mention Jeh as Jehangir. A similar controversy had occurred when Kareena and Saif Ali Khan welcomed their firstborn Taimur. Trolls had claimed that the child was named after a ‘Turkish invader’. “We have two innocent children we are talking about. We are going to stay happy and positive and that’s just the way I am going to look at life,” Kareena said about the controversy. The Laal Singh Chaddha actor assured that the attention being given to her and Saif’s choice of names was unsolicited, especially with bigger problems in the world. “We’re in a global pandemic right now. I don’t think the most important thing is ‘what my son is doing’ or ‘what my son’s name is’ or ‘what exactly is happening with my son’. I don’t think that’s the focus,” she shared. On the work front, Kareena will next be seen in Laal Singh Chaddha alongside Aamir Khan
