Katrina took to Instagram a few months ago to share an adorable picture with Jineet captioned: I’ve finally met someone who actually talks more than me ……. much more ….. my mbkd co-star’s grown up.

Remember the cute baby on the packets of Huggies diapers? Jineet caught the attention of renowned ad agency Ogilvy & Mather after he modelled for Huggies diapers when he was barely five months old. He has bagged the award of Best Child Ad Performer of the Year in 2008, for the LIC Jeevan Tarang policy advertisement. With horse-riding as his hobby, he aspires to follow in the footsteps of his role model Aamir Khan, and become an actor-director.
