Taimur Ali Khan needs no introduction! Even though he is just a year old, he is already a star and media is always eager to know more about him.
Just recently, Times of India, which is one of the oldest and most prestigious media houses of India, published a story on Taimur. The article was all about Saif Ali Khan’s revelation regarding his son who has learnt new words and now he calls Saif as “Abba”. The “Chef” actor also told that whenever Taimur sees chewing gum, he shouts “gum”.
Taimur calling Saif as abba is certainly not a big thing as every kid calls his father as dad, papa or abba. People didn’t like the fact that such a big media house is left with nothing else to publish and serving this kind of news.

The micro-blogging site Twitter was soon flooded with jokes and memes, slamming TOI for giving unnecessary importance to junior Pataudi and serving this kind of journalism which in turn means that it’s not worth a news to be reported. Here are some of the selected reactions:
Wow, wow, wow!
Good Morning India,
Taimur called #Saif “Abba”!
Wow Wow I mean really Wow! Taimur is the FIRST BABY in the WORLD to call his dad

Is this a news? Has standard of TOI has gone down so worst level? Or was TOI expecting Taimur would call "Abba"to someone other than Saif?
