As soon as the confirmation came from Randhir Kapoor about his grandson’s name, netizens took no time to troll Kareena Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan’s decision to name their son, Jeh.
Kareena Kapoor Khan – the one, who has never fit into the predefined boxes of the society, seldom plays by the rules and is known of breaking stereotypes. Kareena has never let her family, society or the trolls bother or stop her from doing what she wants and throughout her journey, she has maintained her fearless image. Kareena has made her own path, fearlessly and despite being often trolled about the decisions she makes, Bebo never stepped back from what she believed in.
Kareena Kapoor And Saif Ali Khan received a lot of backlash when they named their first son, Taimur. The fact that it was apparently a ‘Muslim name of Mughal ruler’ irked many, given the fact that Bebo is originally a Hindu. Recently, grandfather Randhir Kapoor confirmed that the Kareena’s second son is named Jeh. And looks like the trolls are back all over again.
After the criticism last time, rumours were rife that Saif and Kareena were being extra cautious about the name they choose for their newborn. A lot of speculations took place, after which Randhir Kapoor confirmed that the son is indeed named Jeh.
This has irked a section of netizens who claim that Kareena Kapoor Khan and Saif Ali Khan have all over again given a Muslim touch to the name. Trolls took over Twitter and began backlashing the Bollywood couple in numerous ways.

And Kareena was a little against it, and she said, ‘People respect you for your opinion and you can’t’… So I said, yeah, but it’s not about people. I don’t want him to get unpopular.”
