Shahrukh Khan feels blessed to have AbRam
Superstar Shahrukh Khan is reluctant to speak about his third child, AbRam who is born via surrogacy in May last year. There were many controversies surrounding AbRam’s birth but the doting father is not ready to give prominence to such stories, he does not want to bring his small child in public glare.
"I am not overtly happy talking about him. He is my baby and nobody else's. You can come home and see him if I allow you to come in my house," Shah Rukh told PTI in an exclusive interview.
When asked about why he always
kept AbRam away from the world, the actor further said, "he
(AbRam) is not meant for flashbulbs. I don't want him to be a participant in
this circus of public life that I am a part of. That is what I do... Public
life... The good, bad, ugly, goodness of media, the strangeness... I am part of
it, not my children," the 48-year-old actor said.
AbRam was born at 34 weeks of pregnancy and had initially spent most of the
time in hospital.
"It is one of the only things that has made me uncomfortable in my career is you take on a child who is sick when he was born and make it an issue... I find it very disgraceful. I am a movie star, disgrace me but not my kids," he said.
As Aryan and Suhana grown up now, they pose with their father but AbRam
is too small to such affair, “He (Abram) is small... Don't want to allow that
innocence in my line of work. Others do it good... I don't doit so I can't
comment on others. One day if I feel to come out I will. My baby, my life... I
feel awkward when people say why I don't bring him in public. I will do what I
feel like. You can't put picture because I don't like it, I feel
uncomfortable," he said.
Shahrukh was hurt with the false report of sex-determination. "I did not
like that fact when the media spoke about the surrogacy. I hate it. They said I
had sex determination test, which was rubbish. I am too educated to be
indulging in this non-sense. He was suffering... He was ill and people were
talking about sex determination just because he is the child of a famous movie
star," he said.
"He will grow up one day and might read all this or may not read also... But it is very sad. Just because he is my child, it doesn't make him less or more than anyone else... A kid is a kid. He was unwell and there were cases going on. I feel awkward," he said. However, Shahrukh is very happy and feels blessed to have such a beautiful child.
"He is very sweet, beautiful and pretty looking. He is a pleasant child.
He brings lot of cheer and happiness. It is great fun to be with him. Everyone
wants to be with him. There is so much innocence and love in the baby... He is
very sweet. The kids like him... I like him," Shah Rukh said.
"My office people make excuses to come home to see him. We have lot of good time. Now I have to do the kids shopping thing again...Whatever I did ten years ago," he said.
