Aaradhya Bachchan and Taimur Ali Khan are loved by the shutterbugs. Photographs of these celebrity kids emerge every now and then. While often clicked with their parents and their maternal grandmothers, these kids are never seen hanging out with their paternal grannies.
Says a close family friend of the Bachchans, “Have you ever seen even one picture of Jayaji with Aaradhya? Whenever in the public domain, we see Aaradhya only with her naani Brinda Rai. Her daadi never accompanies Aaradhya and the child hardly ever gets time to spend with Jayaji. Even at home, Aishwarya prefers to take care of every single detail regarding Aaradhya. And when Aishwarya needs help with Aaradhya, she calls out for her mother, never her mother-in-law.”
There’s a similar pattern emerging in Taimur’s life too. He is constantly seen visiting his naani Babita . And he’s hardly ever seen with his daadi Sharmila Tagore.
Says a family friend, “Pehle toh Sharmilaji Dilli mein rehtee hain aur phir unhe zabardasti Daadi banne ka koi shauq nahin hai (Firstly, she lives in Delhi and then she doesn’t want to forcefully play the role of grandmother). She will meet Taimur when it is convenient for her and his parents.”
