Hey Kareena-Saif, having Taimur in public domain is your choice

New Delhi, Aug 4: Kareena Kapoor Khan and Saif Ali Khan are often heard expressing concern about over-exposure of their son Tamiur — not yet two — in the media.

So how come Saif’s other children from his first marriage did not face the same problem when they were kids?

Oh I see: The paparazzi were neither that active nor this persistent back then.

Ok. So another question to do with other star-toddlers today? How come Aamir Khan’s son Azad doesn’t get hounded by the paparazzi? The answer is simple. Aamir and his wife Kiran don’t want their child in the limelight.

They don’t post pictures of their child on social media. Not that they keep Azad hidden from the cameras. They just ensure he is treated in a normal, healthy way.

Aishwarya-Abhishek’s Aaradhya was constantly in the public eye until their parents took a conscious decision to limit their child’s appearance on social media.

As Meryl Streep recently observed, you can’t expect privacy for a celebrity’s children when they are put on a public platform. Why is it that every time Taimur shares playtime with his cousin Inaya, or Tushar Kapoor’s son Lakshya or Karan Johar’s twins Yash and Roohi, the videos of their innocent frolic show up on social media platforms?

It is the amazing Meryl who recently spoke about keeping her four children away from the public glare. When asked during a television interview to promote her new gorgeous film “Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again”, how she kept her personal and professional lives apart, she offered a magical solution.

She said the choice was entirely hers. She chose to be in the limelight and therefore had to forefeit her privacy. But her children were exempted from the attention. She never put their pictures out on the social media and never allowed paparazzi to access her children’s lives.

I think there is a huge takeaway in Meryl’s pronouncements on privacy for celebrities in Bollywood who complain that their children are hounded by the paparazzi. It is really very simple. If you don’t put your children in the public spotlight, they won’t be.

There was a time when stars like Dharmendra and Manoj Kumar kept their children completely out of the limelight.

This was the pre-Instagram era. Now, star-kids learn to face prying cameras even before they learn to walk properly.

Those poor celebrity progenies have to struggle to come to terms with their parent’s exceptional adulation. I remember Madhuri Dixit’s sons wondering why their mother was being stared at when they came to India for the first time.

Now, of course, the Dixit-Nene boys are used to being hosed down with attention everywhere they go.

It’s not easy for a two-year-old or a three-year-old to have flash bulbs piercing his or her bewildered uncomprehending eyesight. And to be scrutinized for clothes, hair and shoes alongside the chic mom is not just insensitive, it is insane.

It may be fine for Tom Cruise’s darling daughter Suri Cruise, who at seven seems to enjoy being a fashion diva. But what happened to her normal happy healthy life of dolls and teddy bears? Little Suri is welcome to choose her do. But do we really want Aaradhya’s normal childhood to be vandalized by the paparazzi.

I brought up my concerns with Aaradhya’s grandfather, who sighed in resignation. “Ab kya keren? The attention is a little disconcerting. We’ve gotten used it. Aaradhya would also have to get used to it,” said the Big B.

Akshay Kumar, forever playing the real-life role of the monk with the Ferrari, is even more charitable about his children 17-year-old Aarav and five-year-old Nitara being hounded by the paparazzi.

“They are only doing their job. Woh unki rozi-roti hai,” he rationalises the unreasonable invasion of his children in tender territory.

I must admit Akshay’s little daughter is already a camera chameleon. Or for that matter Shah Rukh Khan’s AbRam. The boy is a complete chip off the old block. Like his Dad, he loves the lenses to be on him.

Scarily enough, Taimur seems to enjoy the paparazzi attention. Posing happily, chuckling when photographers call out his name.

Not all star-children are prone to preen before the paparazzi. I remember there was a picture of Karisma Kapoor’s little son Kiaan raising his hands to his face in protest as the cameras went loco.

“Nowadays they are everywhere, outside restaurants and airports. They don’t care how you’re looking after flying for 14 hours or how cranky your child is, they just want their pictures.

Kiaan was tired and irritable after travel when the cameras suddenly opened fire,” says a very close and protective relative of Kiaan Kapoor.

Years ago, I remember Sushmita Sen telling me how she never allowed her daughter Renee to be photographed. This was when there was no active paparazzi in the film industry. By the time she adopted her second girl it was too late to stop the shutterbugs.

Now Sushmita happily poses with her two daughters.

Some might as well lie back and enjoy it.

Mumbai, Sep 20 : Aarti Bajaj, first wife of Anurag Kashyap, has come out in support of the filmmaker, who has been accused by budding actress Payal Ghosh for sexual harassment.

On Sunday, Aarti took to her unverified Instagram account and posted a note describing the #MeToo allegations against Kashyap as the “cheapest stunts” she has seen till now.

“First wife here… You are a rockstar @anuragkashyap10. Keep empowering women as you do and the safest place you create for all of them. I see it first hand with our daughter. There is no integrity left and the world is full of losers and no brains baying for blood of anyone who has a voice.”

“If everybody spends the energy which they use in hating others constructively this world will be a better place. Cheapest stunt I have seen till now. First it made me angry then I laughed so hard as it cannot come more framed then this. I am sorry that you have to go through this .That’s the level of them. You stay HIGH and keep using your voice. We love you,” Aarti wrote.

Aarti and Anurag have a daughter named Aaliyah.

The controversy sparked off after Payal tweeted against Kashyap on Saturday.

“@anuragkashyap72 has forced himself on me and extremely badly. @PMOIndia @narendramodi ji, kindly take action and let the country see the demon behind this creative guy. I am aware that it can harm me and my security is at risk. Pls help,” Payal had tweeted.

Kashyap has denied such allegations.

“Kya baat hai, itna samay le liya mujhe chup karwane ki koshish mein. Chalo koi nahin. Mujhe chup karaate karaate itna jhooth bol gaye ki aurat hote hue doosri auraton ko bhi sang ghaseet liya. Thodi toh maryada rakhiye, madam. Bas yahi kahunga ki jo bhi aarop hain aap ke sab bebuniyaad hain (Wow, it took you so long to try to silence me. Never mind. In the process of silencing me, you dragged other women in this, despite being a woman. Please have some dignity, madam. All I want to say is that every allegation is baseless),” Kashyap wrote on Twitter.

Mumbai, Sep 20 : Filmmaker Anurag Kashyap”s friends from the film industry, Taapsee Pannu, Anubhav Sinha, Tisca Chopra and Surveen Chawla, have come out in support of the director after actor Payal Ghosh accused him of sexual harrassment.

On Saturday, Ghosh took to Twitter, claiming that the “Gangs of Wasseypur” director was sexually inappropriate towards her, an allegation Kashyap called “baseless”.

Ghosh, 30, tagged Prime Minister Narendra Modi in her tweet, requesting him to take action against the filmmaker.

Pannu, who collaborated with Kashyap on the 2018 romantic-drama “Manmarziyaan”, took to Instagram and wrote that the filmmaker was “the biggest feminist” she knew.

“For you, my friend, are the biggest feminist I know. See you on the sets soon of yet another piece of art that shows how powerful and significant women are in the world you create,” the “Thappad” actor wrote.

Sinha said the existence of the #MeToo movement is to amplify voices of harassed women and it should not be misused.

“It is the joint responsibility of women and men both to carefully protect the sanctity of #Metooindia. It is a very very very important movement that should not be misused for any other reason but the dignity of women,” Sinha tweeted, tagging Kashyap.

Chawla, who worked with the filmmaker on his two-part Netflix series “Sacred Games”, said the allegation against the director reeked of “opportunism”.

“Let them creep. Let them crawl. You my friend, as always stand tall. These false flag bearers of feminism… Opportunism? They dont honour men like you. For their lack of knowledge in knowing know who you really are, and claims they make, that are just so bizzare.”

In a subsequent tweet, Chawla said Kashyap”s legacy is stronger than the allegation.

“Your life, your work and the women you create with your craft…speak volumes about you. I have the privilege to know the real feminist in you, I take the honour my friend to stand for you! @anuragkashyap72,” she added.

Chopra, who featured alongside Kashyap and Chawla in the short film “Chhuri”, said the filmmaker was one of the biggest supporters of talent, be it men or women.

“To know my friend @anuragkashyap72 is to know generosity, honesty and decency at its core .. even a cursory look at his work reveals his worldview on women .. don”t know a bigger supporter of talent, men or women,” she tweeted.

Earlier on Sunday, in a series of Twitter posts in Hindi, Kashyap dismissed the allegations, dubbing it an attempt to “silence” him.

The 48-year-old director has been vocal against the criticism and vilification of Bollywood by celebrities and trolls online.

“Such a long time was taken to shut me up, never mind. (But) while shutting me up, you lied so much that you dragged other women also in it. Please maintain some dignity madam. All I will say is that all your allegations are baseless,” Kashyap tweeted.

Post her revelation, Ghosh found support in National Commission for Women, with its chairperson Rekha Sharma assuring the actor that the NCW will take cognisance of the case.
