Kareena Kapoor Khan took her sons Taimur and Jeh to the ongoing `As Slow As You Can` exhibition at Mumbai`s NMACC (Nita Mukesh Ambani Cultural Centre). Taking to Instagram, the official account of NMACC shared several pictures and a video of the family.
In one of the pictures shared on the official handle of NMACC, Kareena, Taimur and Jeh are seen sitting on a bench with a huge zoomed in picture of spaghetti in the background. In another photo, Taimur lay on a bed and smiled while Kareena clicked his photo. Kareena`s younger son Jeh is seen sitting at the edge of the bed looking in front of him.

However, some netizens took to the comment section to express their disappointment at NMACC`s treatment towards children of non celebrity parents. “While the general public`s children were instructed to refrain from touching anything, it appears that celebrity families may have been granted leeway to disregard these guidelines. This scenario raises questions about the relationship between stardom and rule-breaking, potentially serving as an illustration of exceptions made for those in the limelight. Alternatively, it could be suggested that refraining from sharing images that contradict self-imposed rules would be a prudent course of action. *Basic PR Norms,” wrote a netizen alleging discrimination by the centre. Few others also expressed that they faced the same issue.
“Wow this shows the partiality our kids were asked to remove shoes n look at her kids with shoes.. they behaved rude with 6 years kids if they were touching n loom here they look so cool,” wrote another user in the comment section.
The NMACC handle took note of the complaint and responded by saying, “Thank you for the feedback. As a rule of caution, all children visiting are advised to not touch certain parts of the exhibition by our guest experiences team. However, all children are encouraged to enjoy in this immersive room with the required care.”
Responding to the clarification, the initial user wrote, “My intent is to make certain that the message I`m conveying is lucid. What I aspire to express is that taking on the mantle of representing a name entails a considerable burden of responsibility. I must also commend the remarkable presentation you all have delivered. However, I`d kindly advise being attentive to details that might inadvertently affect anyone`s sentiments and emotions”. However, many were not satisfied the clarification issued by NMACC.
“No, your staff was not “advising” the kids, rather pouncing on them when they got even a bit close to the artwork,” wrote an Instagram user in response to the clarification.
“@nmacc.india did you “advised” the same to Kareena`s kids ? If yes then they didn`t listened to you all which is rude,” questioned another user.
Meanwhile, NMACC also shared another clip where Kareena spoke about her experience at the exhibition. She said, “My two boys Taimur and Jeh love coming here. They feel they get transported to another world…” The caption read, “We were transported to Milan instantly and what was amazing was that the kids had a blast and they actually thought they are in the spaghetti world, which is a unique kind of experience.”
