In February 2021, Kareena Kapoor Khan and Saif Ali Khan welcomed their second child into the world. A flurry of congratulatory messages from across the country were poured in after this news made national headlines. However, the joy was short-lived after people began to tease the second-time new parents for naming their second son ‘Jehangir Ali Khan’.
As a result of the trolling and hate speech, people have started abusing and cursing the family on social media in recent days. Kareena Kapoor Khan has finally reacted to the trolls and given a fitting response to the hate she and her family receive on the internet.
Kareena Kapoor Khan was asked about her thoughts and reaction to the online trolling and backlash directed at her and Saif Ali Khan for naming their second son ‘Jehangir’ in an interview with India Today.
In response to the ongoing social media debate over her son’s name, Kareena Kapoor Khan stated that she is an extremely positive person, which is why she is unaffected by such things. She stated, “I am a positive person and I want to spread happiness and positivity. There is no place for negativity in our lives.”
In her interview, Kareena Kapoor went on to say that during these trying times, people should try to come together rather than doing the opposite. The actress also revealed how she deals with trolls. She stated, “Take a look at what the Covid-19 pandemic has done. It has brought the world closer together. That is something we should all consider. Now that I’m up against the wall, I need to start meditating. We’re dealing with two helpless children here.”
For the unversed, Jehangir was the fourth Mughal Emperor who had executed Sikh Guru Arjan Dev, which is the reason why netizens are trolling Kareena Kapoor Khan and Saif Ali Khan mercilessly for naming their son after him. However, if we go by history, then Jehangir is a Persian word that means ‘one who conquers the world’. Amidst the chaos, Saif Ali Khan’s sister, Saba Ali Khan, had also shared some positive and lovely replies she had received after the revelation that her brother, Saif’s second child’s name, is Jehangir.
