Swara Bhaskar tweeted on Wednesday in support of Kareena Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan, who has been subjected to a storm of online hate once again after the name of their second son, Jehangir Ali Khan, was disclosed. After the birth of their first kid, Taimur Ali Khan, Saif and Kareena faced hostility as well.

Swara Bhasker said in Hindi on Twitter, “Kissi dammpatti ne apne bachchon ke naam rakhe hain, aur woh dammpatti aap nahi hain. Par aapko ispar rai hai ke naam hai aur kyu hai, aur aapke dimaag mein yeh ek mudda hai, jisse aapki bhavnayein aahat hain. Toh aap iss duniya ke sabse bade gadhon mein ek hain.”
किसी दम्पति ने अपने बच्चों के नाम रखे हैं, और वो दम्पति आप नहीं हैं – पर आपको इसपर राय है कि नाम क्या हैं और क्यूँ हैं और आपके दिमाग़ में ये एक मुद्दा है; जिस से आपकी भावनाएँ आहत हैं…. तो आप इस दुनिया के सबसे बड़े गधों में एक हैं! 🙄🙄🙄 #Jehangir #mindyourownbusiness

The hashtags ‘Jehangir’ and ‘mind your own business’ were added by Swara. In February, Jehangir, who had previously been known as Jeh, was born. In Kareena Kapoor Khan’s newly released self-help book, Kareena Kapoor Khan’s Pregnancy Bible, his complete name was revealed.
“What’s in a name?” asked Kareena’s sister-in-law Saba Ali Khan in an Instagram Story earlier this week, presumably in response to the continued outrage. She said, sharing a screenshot of a news item regarding Jeh’s name, “What’s in a name?” Sharing a screenshot of a news story about Jeh’s name, she wrote, “Jeh…jaan. What’s in a name? Love…live and let it be. Children are God’s blessings.”
Kareena Kapoor On Hiding Son Jehangir Ali Khan Name
People on Twitter assume that Jehangir was named after the Mughal ruler. They thought Taimur was named after the Turkish conqueror. In the months following Taimur’s birth, Kareena and Saif were so rattled that they made the intentional decision to keep their second son’s name and face hidden.
Kareena told guest Neha Dhupia on an episode of her talk program What Women Want that they had decided to wait till the baby arrived before naming it. “After the whole Taimur fiasco, neither Saif nor I have given it a second consideration. “We’re going to leave it until the last minute. Then spring a surprise,” she said on the show to Neha.
In a 2017 interview with a prominent newspaper, Saif stated that he had considered altering Taimur’s name, but Kareena talked him out of it.
