Mumbai:  Veteran actor  and Kareena Kapoor Khan's uncle Rishi Kapoor, in a series of tweets, has lashed out on those who have commented on the name given by Kareena and Saif Ali Khan to their son, Taimur Ali Khan. He says that it is no one's business to comment on their decision.

"Why are people so bothered what the parents want to name their child please? Mind your business,it's got nothing to do with you. Parents wish," Rishi tweeted on Wednesday.

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.

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

"Alexander and Sikandar were no saints. They are common names in the world. Apna kaam karo na tum (Mind your own business). Tumko kya takleef hai? (What is your problem?)," he said.

Earlier, the former Jammu and Kashmir Cheif minister Omar Abdullah criticised those who made fun of Saif and Kareena for naming their newly-born son Taimur. Abdullah said that it is their right to decide the name of their baby and the opinion of the rest does not matter.

Kareena, daughter of veteran actors Randhir Kapoor and Babita, delivered the baby on Tuesday morning at the Breach Candy Hospital here.

Kareena and Saif, who have worked together in films like Tashan, Kurbaan, Agent Vinod, LOC Kargil and Omkara, got married in October 2012.

Saif, the son of veteran actress Sharmila Tagore and the late cricketer Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi, was earlier married to actress Amrita Singh and shares two children with her - daughter Sara and son Ibrahim.
