Rishi Kapoor Trolled for Using Jonty Rhodes to Defend Taimur

On Thursday morning, Rishi Kapoor defended Karoona Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan’s choice of their son’s name. Citing the example of cricketer Johnty Rhodes who named his daughter India, Kapoor said that “only parents have the right to name their kids”.

Twitter soon pounced on the opportunity to troll the actor.

Earlier this week, veteran actor Rishi Kapoor had lashed on those who commented on the name given by actress Kareena Kapoor Khan and actor Saif Ali Khan to their son. He said that it was no one's business to comment on their decision.

Kareena and Saif named their son Taimur Ali Khan. The name given to the star couple's son was a topic of debate on social media platforms as Taimur was the founder of the Timurid Empire in Persia and Central Asia and had invaded India in 1398.

Kapoor, who is popular for voicing out his opinions on social media, also replied to a users saying that names like Alexander and Sikander are common in the world even though Alexander, a Greek king, was not a saint.
