Shahrukh Khan is very close to all his children and loves them, equally. But in a recent interview, the doting father revealed that at times Aryan and Suhana feels that he is too sweet to AbRam.
When asked, ''Are you bringing up AbRam differently from how Aryan and Suhaana were?'', Shahrukh Khan told New Indian Express, '' Exactly the same way, there is no difference. When my other two kids tell me ‘Papa you are too sweet to him,' I say ‘How do you know I wasn't sweet to you? When you were this age, I was like this with you too.' I am not a strict father.''

Shahrukh Khan further added, ''The only difference is that AbRam comes out more often with me because my other two kids were both shy. My son (Aryan) had car sickness so only once in a while would he come to my shooting. They get scared when people surround my car, and my daughter would start crying. Also, it was not so convenient those days-- there were no good vanity vans and the studios were bad -- so we would avoid.''
''AbRam comes out more often with me he is a friendly child and does not get scared of the crowd ... he is not shy. Maybe once he grows older and realises that I am an actor, he too may feel awkward like the other two,'' the Dilwale actor revealed.
In the same interview, Shahrukh Khan also talked about casting Kajol in Dilwale, ''We cast Kajol because we had not done any film together in the last five years (since My Name Is Khan, 2010).''

Shahrukh Khan further added, ''Also, Dilwale has romantic moments which suit our ages ... there are two time phases in the story. I told Rohit (Shetty) and we went to Kajol.''
When asked, ''Dilwale was announced much after Fan and Raees ... how is it releasing first?'' Shahrukh Khan said, ''Fan was supposed to release on August 15 but though we thought the VFX will be done in six months, it has taken a year and a quarter!''
The superstar of Bollywood added, ''Dilwale was always slated to release this year and Raees was always an Eid 2016 release. We were planning to shoot a portion of Raees in Ahmedabad in December but since I have injured my knee, I will shoot it in January.''

''It has not been emotionally draining because I am a professional actor and I enjoy acting in new projects. But now I will now try and do a film in one go,'' the Dilwale actor said.

SRK added,''In January I will finish Raees -- 20 days of shooting are left because my injury delayed the shoot. Then I have Gauri Shinde's film and I am in talks with Imitaz Ali, Anand Rai and two more directors.''
