Little Nawabs Jehangir and Taimur Ali Khan are related to Nobel Laureate Rabindranath Tagore and also the great-great-grandson of ‘Emperor Akbar’; read this
Jehangir Ali Khan is the namesake of the fourth Mughal emperor who ruled for 22 years, Jehangir. Since morning many reports and memes are going around about Kareena's son.
The last time when the couple announced their first son's name as Taimur Ali Khan, people started talking about the same. A source close to the family reveals, “Yes, they have named their son Jehangir Ali Khan. The couple has refrained from revealing the name as they do not want any controversies surrounding it."
The source further tells that Kareena and Saif were contemplating a few names, “When Taimur Ali Khan was born, Saif was keen on naming him Faiz after the famous poet Faiz Ahmed Faiz but Kareena decided to go with Taimur. This time too, Saif was keen on naming the child Faiz, but later on, the couple thought of naming their second child Jehangir."
But did you know, besides being a Nawab, Taimur and Jehangir are also reportedly related to Rabindranath Tagore? We all know that both the babies are the grandson of Sharmila Tagore and Sharmila’s parents are allegedly associated with Rabindranath Tagore, which draws their direct connection with Tagore.
According to reports, Sharmila’s father, Gitindranath, was the grandson of acclaimed painter Gaganendranath Tagore, whose father was a cousin to Rabindranath Tagore. So, the Nobel Laureate is the cousin of Sharmila’s great-great-grandfather.
Also, Sharmila’s mother is the granddaughter of the poet’s brother Dwijendranath. So, Taimur is the great-great-grandson of Rabindranath Tagore’s brother. Sharmila earlier opened up about being linked to Rabindranath Tagore. She said he died three years before she was born, so she never met him or had any interaction with him. But she revealed that she had heard great stories from her mother.
In an interview, Saif Ali Khan had said that Taimur has got a bit of Rabindranath Tagore, Raj Kapoor, Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi in him as he called Taimur as the genetic treasure trove’
Prithviraj Kapoor, Kareena's great grandfather, had played the role of Akbar, while late Dilip Kumar was Salim aka Jehangir. So here is a filmy connection too.
