Shahrukh Khan is India's most loved superstar and that is the reason why his fans want to know everything about him. But the actor feels that it gets difficult for his children Aryan and Suhana to move freely because of the paparazzi and he feels sorry for it.
Talking about his children, Shahrukh Khan told Pinkvilla, ''It's awkward for children. Apology is a strong word, but I do excuse myself, it is odd for my kids today...very often I find myself telling them that, 'I am very sorry I am a movie star'.''
Shahrukh Khan further added, ''There are lot of things that come with that package, that lifestyle, like privacy maybe, photographs, questions, controversies, issues, good things, reviews, negativity, positivity, gossip, and because I am in that profession, I have to accept it as it is part and parcel, that is my occupational hazard or occupational aspect to say' It is not theirs', so for them it is awkward to be photographed.''

''Being photographed when they are out with their friends.. or being photographed while coming out of airport, they find it very odd. I will be very honest. Any child would. They don't want to live as part of reflected glory, '' he said.
''This is one of the reasons I sent them to study abroad because here the life gets too affected by my lifestyle and I think it is unfortunate, it is unfair. But they learn to deal with it. So yes, they are little awkward when accosted suddenly by the media and photographers,'' the Dilwale acror said.
