Shah Rukh is busy promoting ‘Fan’ these days and unlike other superstars, Shah Rukh can speak extensively about his three children, Aryan, Suhana and AbRam. What’s interesting is that he speaks about his children in a different way. At least, the journalist choose to ask him different kinds of questions, instead of the usual ones. He talks about having his kids on social media and the dangers of it. He speaks about AbRam and why they decided to have him. It’s sad how people on the internet comment on his kids and his kids see all of that.
Shah Rukh Khan on his children on social media
My kids are on Instagram, which I’m not allowed to follow. They have private groups that I don’t know how to figure out, as I’m not very good with Instagram. My managers are allowed to follow, under pseudonyms, but I’m not allowed to follow at all.
Shah Rukh on the dangers of social media for his children
I spend a lot of time with them and the kids are very cool. I don’t think they’d do anything that would put them in a situation.
Shah Rukh on Aryan and Suhana’s reactions to people’s comments
My son gets riled up when his pictures come out and someone abuses him. My daughter, somehow, is amused and she’ll say papa, papa, come look na and see what bad comments they’re writing about me that I’m so dark. I wish I could be like that. I get more disturbed on social media than they do.
Shah Rukh on the fear he has for his children
The only fear I have is that I hope they can outgrow this strange shadow of stardom that my life casts on them. They should be able to figure out a way of being just themselves.
Shah Rukh on the birth of his youngest son, AbRam
It was always a discussion amongst friends and everyone thought we should have a third child. I think there was a time when we wanted to have a baby and it wasn’t the right time for Gauri to have one, medically. And so there was this outside option and we went for it.
