Bollywood actor Saif Ali Khan shared his thoughts on the overwhelming attention and obsession surrounding star kids in the industry. With a sea of fans eagerly following every move of their favourite celebrities, it's no surprise that star kids like Taimur Ali Khan and Jehangir Ali Khan, offspring of Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan, often find themselves in the spotlight.

Saif recalling an incident said, “Taimur was doing a taekwondo thing and people were photographing him and making reels. So we don’t want that kind of attention. We don’t make the star kid, the star kid is made. I mean we might make him biologically but what makes the star kid is the press and then the photographers and then the audience who perhaps quite innocently just want to see a star kid.”
