It could be inferred that the kids are closer to their maternal family compared to their paternal side.

Star kids Aaradhya Bachchan and Taimur Ali Khan have been in the limelight even before they saw the light of day. And while their mothers’ fandoms celebrated their arrival, turns out, their families aren’t that close after all. 

It’s a matriarchal world for both the star kids. It could be inferred that the kids are closer to their maternal family compared to their paternal side.

In fact, even in public, the kids are more likely to be seen with their maternal relatives than with their paternal ones. Says a close family friend of the Bachchans, “Have you ever seen even one picture of Jayaji with Abhishek’s daughter Aaradhya? Whenever in the public domain, we see Aaradhya only with her naani (maternal grandmother) Brinda Rai. Her daadi (paternal grandmother) rarely ever accompanies Aaradhya. The child hardly ever gets time to spend with Jayaji. Even at home with the Bachchans, Aishwarya prefers to take care of every single detail regarding Aaradhya. And when Aishwarya needs help with Aaradhya, she calls out for her mother, and never her mother-in-law.”

There is a similar pattern emerging in baby Taimur Khan’s life. He is constantly seen visiting his naani Babita. But we hardly, if ever, see the child with his daadi Sharmila Tagore.

Says a family friend of the Pataudis, “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 has no interest in playing the doting grandmother). She will meet Taimur when it is convenient for her and his parents.”
