Superstar Shah Rukh Khan on Friday said he loves his three children in equal proportion and also revealed that for him, his elder son Aryan is a “dude”, his daughter Suhana a “pretty lady” and the youngest of the siblings AbRam a “little gangster”.
The actor also said that AbRam respects the fact that people love and respect his father. “When there is Eid, Diwali or my birthday, people usually come outside my house and they shout and take my name. And their voices can be heard inside the house. When AbRam hears it, he says ‘Papa bachas have come’,” Shah Rukh said in Mumbai.
“I was working till late night, so I thought I will meet you (media and fans) bit late, but he (AbRam) came to my room and said ‘papa bachas have come’. I don’t know how he feels it as he is small. But he respects the fact that people love and respect me from outside the house. He makes it a point and holds my hand and takes me to the balcony,” he added.
The “Dilwale” star reveals he gets to play with toys more now due to AbRam.
“I have got lot more toys like cycle, etc. I have an excuse to buy toys in the name of AbRam and play it myself,” he adds.
Wearing a white kurta-pyjama, SRK came with his three-year-old son AbRam and waved to the fans waiting outside his house in suburban Mumbai. The 50-year-old actor, married to Gauri Khan, has three children – Aryan, Suhana and the youngest one, AbRam, and he says he loves all of them equally.
“I am equal with my children. Aryan was the first child, Suhana is most special because she is a girl and AbRam is the youngest so everybody loves him. I can’t decide. I have a dude son, pretty lady and a little gangster…I love them all and it is nice to spend time with them,” he said.
“It is not possible to say who is pampered more or who is close as I love them equally they are my children. I hope they love me equally as we love them,” he added.
On work front, Shah Rukh Khan is collaborating with director Imtiaz Ali for his next. Talking about the same he said that the film is “not a young and upbeat love
“He (Imtiaz Ali) said one day I want to do a film with you. I told him I am in happy zone, so want to do a happy film. He has a different language of love. It’s a love story, but keeping my age in mind, it’s not a young upbeat love story. He has a nice take,” Shah Rukh said.
In the film, the 50-year-old actor will be seen romancing Anushka Sharma. It will be their second film outing after 2008 romantic drama “Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi”.
When asked him if he would now play roles closer to his age, SRK said, “I played a 26-year-old in ‘Fan’. It depends on the role. I should play age as a character. I
should think I am 26 year old and not believe I am 26 year old. I look 26, feel 26 and I am sexy as 26, but I should play as a character.”
Shah Rukh said he has known Imtiaz for quite sometime now. “I liked his debut film ‘Socha Na Tha’. He has narrated me his stories ‘Love Aaj Kal’, ‘Rockstar’. I liked ‘Jab We Met’ and ‘Highway’. He has always discussed his films with me as a friend and as a creative person,” the “Fan” star said.
King Khan will start shooting for the film by the end of August. “After this, I will do Anand L Rai’s film in November. Its casting has not been finalised yet. I have been discussing a film with Aditya Chopra since a year. It’s a different film. There are people with whom I am discussing films. They are good directors,” he said.
