A few days back, Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor were spotted at the Mumbai airport with their son Taimur heading for their summer holiday. On arriving, the shutterbugs started clicking their pictures and in the video, the actor was seen telling the paps, "Bas Karo yaar, Bachcha Andha Ho Jaayega". (Stop it, the child will go blind).
Post this, rumours started floating that Said Ali Khan has filed a police complaint against the photographers for clicking Taimur's pictures in their residential area causing ruckus for the neighbours, as a result.
Commenting on the same, Saif Ali Khan has rubbished the speculations and spoke to an online portal saying: "I did not initiate any police complaint against the photographers. Kareena and I live in a respectful residential area and are a part of the larger community, thereby we do also have a responsibility to emotionally support our neighbours when they feel a disturbance to them is being caused and to be fair, their sentiments are understandable. We have always shared a very respectful relationship with the paparazzi as we understand that this their livelihood."
He also added: "However, it's important for us to understand that kids should enjoy the basic right of growing up in a normal atmosphere out of and away from constant media glare. I believe I am well within my right as a father to choose to not pose for the cameras when I have my son with me or to inform the photographers that the constant flashes can hurt his eyes. As media figures, we have to live with the attention and we accept that. But our kids shouldn't be subjected to it," Saif said in a statement.
