FACT CHECK

NewsMobile fact-checked the post and found the claim to be false and misleading.

We ran the image through Google reverse image search and found various media reports with the same picture.

The headline of a report by Hindustan Times read, “Taimur Ali Khan flashes a million-dollar smile as he poses with a baby. Fans can’t get over ‘precious’ photo.”

The news report was dated 12 November 2020. The caption of the picture read, “Taimur Ali Khan with Naina Sawhney’s daughter Sia.”

Further, the news report stated that Naina Sawhney, who is a part of Kareena’s managerial team, had shared pictures from a dinner party hosted by the actor.

We then checked Naina Sawhney’s Instagram account and found the same picture posted by her on November 12, 2020, with the caption, “Thank you for having us Bebo @kareenakapoorkhan ❤️ Sia made her first friend ❤️ love you both @poonamdamania

We found related news reports by NDTV and India TV.

Hence, based on this information, it is clear that the picture is not of Taimur Ali Khan with his newborn younger brother.

Incidentally, NewsMobile has debunked another fake news about Saif and Kareena’s second child.
