Beloved Bollywood couple Saif and Kareena's little bundle of joy may have just arrived yesterday but the baby boy has already become controversy's favourite child.
Contrary to what many of their fans believed, the actors did not name the baby Saifeena, but Taimur Ali Khan Pataudi, which means Iron in Arabic. The #TaimurAliKhanPataudi has already been trending on top in India yesterday, says Times of India.
However, the choice of name has sparked a variety of responses from fans, some good and others, not so much, reports NDTV.

We would like to thank the media for the understanding and support they have given us over the last nine months, and of course, especially our fans and well wishers for their continued affection.
