SRK says 'Slapgate' reportage affecting his kids

Badshah of Bollywood Shahrukh Khan said that the ‘slapgate’ reportage on media is highly effecting his kids. He feels embrassed when such reports which hardly carry any truth are aired on news channel or written on newspaper.

"Lots of things are being said about my life in news channels but the stuff which you put up in the channels are not the whole truth. This is embarrassing at times as I have a 14-year-old son and an 11-and-a-half year old daughter," said Shah Rukh, who was in the city to address a programme.

The Bollywood badshah was highly embarrassed as a father to explain certain issues to his children.

"Every morning it becomes very difficult to explain to your children and it becomes embarrassing as a father, as a brother or as elder son of the family to explain about what is stated," he told reporters.

He was very shocked as how stories about hitting Shirish Kunder are fabricated and reported on TV.

"Bollywood stories are presented in a larger than life way... I have read the headlines. Yeah, some of them have not happened and some of them might have happened, but I would like to keep it to myself," he remarked.

Describing Farah as a very old friend, Shahrukh regretted the reports that have been published about his dissimilarity with her.

"I have heard things that have been stated about us and it`s very difficult for people to sit down and read things in the house. In our house, the kids call her Farah aunty. It`s really sad when for last two years people say she said this and that... None of that is happening," he said.

However, he is hopeful that things would be resolved very soon.

"We can resolve our issues... certain issues we can resolve with hugs and happiness and I want to keep it personal," he said.
