Kapil shot for the ‘Happy Birthday India’ – Independence Day special episodes of Dance India Dance off late and it was on the sets of DID he gave Kareena a bat for Tim. Along with his autograph, he wrote an adorable message for the toddler – “Taimur, good luck. Hope you play for India one day.” As Bebo received the token, she couldn’t help but smile and thank Kapil graciously for his sweet gesture. That’s not all, she even played cricket with him and the sportsman handed out tips to her about the game, too.

Taimur’s grandfather, late Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi, was an Indian cricketer and former captain of the Indian cricket team. Nicknamed as Tiger Pataudi, he was called as one of ‘India’s greatest cricket captains’ and the ‘best fielder in the world’ during his time. Tim’s great grandfather Iftikhar Ali Khan too was a renowned cricketer while his grandmother Sharmila Tagore is one of the ex-cinequeens. Kareena, herself, comes from the first family of Bollywood while Saif and Soha Ali Khan‘s acting stints are phenomenal too. Needless to mention, Taimur has the best of both cricket and cinema genes. Although he is too young at the moment, we cannot to see him play with his present from the cricketing legend.
