Becoming a celebrity is never so easy, especially when it comes to making a distinction between a public and private life.
These three incidents that happened to the Indian stars are proof that being a public figure just means to be ready for receiving criticism and uncalled pieces of advice from the people.
Name of Kareena Kapoor and Saif Ali khan’s new born baby
Taimur Ali Khan, the newborn baby of Kareena and Saif, proved that kids of celebrities are also a celebrity. The very name Taimur generated a huge controversy on social media, where users criticized the couple for naming their child after the name of an invader Taimur who is famous for his brutality and massacre of the people in India.
How Does it Sound to Call Your Kid HITLER?? Saif Ali Khan and Kareen Kapoor Name Their Kid ‘TAIMUR’…Know Who Was Hehttps://t.co/Xf6KkYwiTz

Such criticizing remarks didn’t come only from the general public, but some well-known intellectuals also used the example of a celebrity name to advocate their point of view about patriarchy.
Taimur Ali Khan? Not Taimur Kapoor? He is only father’s son,not mother’s son? Tragedy is, liberated women happily accept patriarchal system!

Later the veteran actor and uncle of Kareena, Rishi Kapoor came out to defend his niece and gave the shut-up call to all.
You mind your bloody business. Tumhare beta ka naam toh naheen rakha na? Who are you to comment? https://t.co/Sr3SOl65cU

Dress code of the Indian Cricketer Shami
Another celebrity that became the victim of public criticism is the Indian Cricketer Muhammad Shami, who shared his wife’s pictures on the social media. People slammed the sportsman as they considered the dress code of Muhammad Shami’s wife to be inappropriate and contradictory to Islamic norms.

After such criticism the celebrities like Javed Akhtar and Farhan Akhtar came out to defend the Muhammad Shami’s wife’s dress code.
The dress that Mrs Shami is wearing is extremely elegant and dignified . Any one who has any problem with it is sick in his mind .

Dear Mrs Shami,
We have never met but I must say that you look splendid in your gown.
Regards to your proud husband.

Name of Irfan Pathan’s baby
This controversy resembles the first one. Indian cricket celebrity who was blessed with a baby boy named his son as Imran Khan Pathan. People again took to social media for thanking him that man didn’t follow the tradition of Kareena and Saif for not choosing a name attributed to a gangster or a warrior.

Irfan Pathan didn’t feel offended rather replied the man in a dignified way to tell him that name doesn’t always decide the personality.
