Shahrukh finds this is a little sacrifice from his side to make his children happy.

I consider their pressure as a blessing." Anbumani Ramdadoss has appealed number of times to Shahrukh and other Bollywood stars to quit smoking as it creates a bad impression among the young generation. Neither Shahrukh nor any other Bollywood star had listened to his plea. "I think minister Anbumani Ramadoss will also be happy to hear that I am going to quit smoking. Nothing gives me more pleasure than to see one more person happy because of my actions" Shahrukh said.

Shahrukh is confident that he would able to give up the bad habit which he is carrying with him for 20 long years.
