Shah Rukh Khan and his wife Gauri have two kids, Aryan and Suhana. The kids are about 2 or 3 years apart. This was a a picture of them with their daddy when they were still small, probably during the ‘Kal Ho Na Ho’ time. Aryan is a cutie though, he looks a lot like his mum.
Date of Birth: Nov 12th 1997
Aryan looks exactly like me but he acts and behaves just like Shahrukh. He is very bright and naughty. Shahrukh makes it a point to pick him up from his play school at least once a week. – Gauri
Shah Rukh Khan on Aryan
“I hope Aryaan will grow up to look like my father. He was such a handsome man.” And will he be as good a parent to his son? “I’ll be a better parent to my son than my parents were to me. They died too soon, they left me alone. But I’ll always be there for my son.”
Now that Aryan is 2, it’s time he had a sister. “Inshallah! I wish we have a daughter too. I’d love to have a girl, but it won’t make a difference if we have another boy. At the time we were expecting Aryan, Gauri wanted a boy and I wanted a girl. We had a boy and I love Aryan more than Gauri does.” – Shahrukh
Date of Birth: 23rd May 2000
Shah Rukh Khan on Suhana
In her own quiet way, Suhana brought smiles and joy into our house even before she was born.
I stayed in my van for two days outside Breach Candy hospital to be near Gauri when she delivered our second child. I left Aryan at Juhi’s house. In between I would get frantic telephone calls on my cell phone about how Aryan was scandalizing the servants and members of Juhi’s family by stripping and running buck naked through the house shouting “Look at me! I’m Tarzan!” It’s his favourite ploy to get attention, which he needs in a constant and undivided manner. I think he’s going to grow up to be an actor.
Amongst the hundreds of telephone calls I received to congratulate Gauri and myself (and to give us advice on raising children!), I particularly remember one from Anil [Kapoor]. He said, “Are you sitting on the side of God and whispering into His ears what you want? First you get success, and fame and then you get a perfect family too – a boy and a girl.” I thought it was very sweet.
Initially, I was scared to pick Suhana in my arms. She was so fragile, unlike Aryan. I could toss up Aryan and play rough with him but Suhana was different, she’s a lady. Very quiet and loving, but I have a feeling she’ll grow up to be very naughty.
