Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor's son Taimur has been hitting headlines even before he was brought into this world. He has now become an eye-candy especially for the paparazzi who never miss a chance to capture his every small moments in their lenses. His popularity has grown so rapidly that people have been making his dolls and naming it after him.

And now filmmaker Madhur Bhandarkar, who is known for making realistic cinemas like Chandni Bar, Fashion and Page 3, has reportedly registered a name 'Taimur' for his upcoming film.

However, there's no clarity on whether Bhandarkar would be making a film on Taimur or just trying to cash in on the popularity of the little munchkin.

While Kareena and Saif have always expressed their worries about their son Taimur getting constant media attention and responding to hi's and bye's of the paparazzi.

Talking about people's obsession towards Taimur, Kareena earlier had said, "Taimur can't run away from his popularity and neither can his parents. When I saw the doll, I wondered what was I supposed to say. But Saif pointed out that it is because people love him so much and such things are a blessing for him. There is so much genuine warmth for our son that it's bad to stop people from clicking his pictures or making his dolls. But, they should understand that he is a two-year-old child and needs a normal life. Both Saif and I are struggling to give him that and will continue to do so without telling the media to back off, no matter how annoying it gets after a point. It's tough on him as it's on Saif and me."

Taimur will be ringing in his 2nd birthday on December 20 and his doting parents have reportedly planned a safari tour in South Africa to celebrate the occassion.
