Taimur's first birthday celebrations are unexpected and in full-swing!

As it turns out, Taimur's first birthday is not taking place in Mumbai, but in Pataudi and there is a very good reason why!

For the past couple of months, there has been a lot of speculation about Taimur's first birthday party. First, there were talks of it being low-key, then came a revelation that it's actually going to be a grand affair.

But we finally learnt that Taimur was to ring in his first birthday amidst family only and as it turns out, not even in city of his birth. Yes, you read that right.

Along with his parents, as well as closest extended family members including massi Karisma Kapoor, cousins Samaira and Kiaan Raj, as well as naani Babita Kapoor and bua Soha Ali Khan, Taimur will cut his first birthday cake in Pataudi.

"He’s too young to understand"

The family left for their palatial abode over the weekend, ending speculations about big celebrations.

So not surprisingly, most of the preparations of his big day at the Pataudi Palace have been overlooked by none other than daadi Sharmila Tagore who also recently revealed why the family chose Pataudi as their final destination for this small party.

"He’s too young to understand, let alone appreciate large gatherings. So it will just be the family this birthday for Taimur. Her (Kareena) parents Babita and Randhir, her sister Karisma will also be there besides Saif, me, Saba and Soha. I think it’s important for a child to do what he or she is comfortable with and not what we want for them," shared Tagore.

A small intimate party is best!

In fact, just days before they left for Pataudi, mum Kareena had also shared that Taimur's birthday was not going to be a Bollywood party.

"It’s going to be a family affair and not a big Bollywood party like how everyone sees it. It’s his first birthday and he should be with his family- his parents and his grandparents. It’s going to be a small intimate thing,” she clarified.

Naturally, fans of the family and well wishers of baby Nawab are looking forward to seeing pictures of his big day. And we can't wait either. It's obviously a big day for the family and especially for mum Kareena who will experience this joy for the first time.

But yes, we agree. It's a great idea to keep a baby's first birthday intimate and family-oriented.

It not only gives the baby a chance to not be overwhelmed by a crowd, but also gives him an opportunity to spend time with those that matter. Plus, let's be honest, a one-year-old cannot really understand the importance of a party and so it may be a good idea to keep it low-key.
