Saba Ali Khan has opened up about her brother, actor Saif Ali Khan and his wife, actress Kareena Kapoor Khan by naming their youngest son Jahangir. She said no one else, except for the parents, has the right to make decisions about the child, including the name. Taking to Instagram, Saba shared an old photo of Kareena lovingly kissing Jeh, as he is also called, from their trip in the Maldives.
Saba captioned the post, “Momma n Jaan Jeh. When a mother holds her child inside her and gives him or her life… only her and the father… are allowed… and the name. No one… no one else, including members of Other family, who might gladly suggest, have a say in anything! It’s her soul that nurtured that child. Only parents have rights. Think it’s a reminder to everyone to respect that. Today…tomorrow. Forever!!!!”
She concluded, “I love you, Papi n Baby J. Kiss from Bojan too!”
In response to this post, fans showered Yeh with love and also supported Saba. One fan said, “Jhangir is a beautiful name. People only criticize him.” Another fan commented, “In Persian, Jahangir means king of the world…and in the recent past two Jahangirs glorified India, Jahangir Ratangi Dadaboy Tata and Homi Jahangir Bhabha.”
Kareena and Saif welcomed Bejeh earlier this year. Since his birth, Kareena has kept Jeh out of the spotlight and hid his face on social media while making posts about him. His name was revealed in July. The couple shares another son, Taimur Ali Khan.
Saif and Kareena have faced criticism from a certain section of the internet for naming their youngest son Jahangir. Speaking to India Today, Kareena said, “You know I am a very positive person. I am very happy and relaxed. I want to spread happiness and positivity in a time like Covid, I can’t think of trolls or any form of negativity.”

She added, “Now there is no other way, I have to start meditating. Because aur koi chaara nahi raha na abhi (I have no other choice). It’s just now because I’m pushed to the wall so now I’m like ‘Okay, I’ll keep meditating.'” There Two sides of a coin. So it’s okay. If there’s a positive, there’s a negative, I have to look at it like that. I wish it wasn’t there. Because we have two innocent kids talking about. But we’ll stay happy and positive.”
