Talking to PTI, Shahrukh Khan said, "My children think of her as Farah aunty and it has been difficult for them to understand this whole issue. I do not want to give two versions of the incident. This is an entirely personal issue. My children will get confused if they hear one thing from me inside the house and another thing in public. That is why I don't comment on my personal life."
Shahrukh Khan kept himself away from commenting as the incident snowballed into a major controversy. Now, he says, “It is very embarrassing for me to talk about this incident in front of my children. My son is 14 and girl is 11 and half years. It is difficult to explain it in the family."
However, Shahrukh Khan's friendship with Farah Khan had soured few years ago, but the duo also sorted out their issues at the patch up meet initiated by director Sajid Khan. "Farah is a very old friend. A lot about us has been written in the past two years. It has been very difficult for me to sit with that. It is nice to have friends back home. I am happy about it," SRK said. "Outsiders think that whatever people in Bollywood do is fun, even if it is personal," he added.
