He's A Doting Dad
Not just on the big screen, Shahrukh Khan makes our hearts go squishy in real life as well. We all know that he shares a great bond with his kids, Aaryan and Suhana and here's a small glimpse of it.
A Born Superstar

SRK Was A Mischievous Kid
The actor was nicknamed 'Mail gadda' in school. Speaking about it in one of his interviews, he said, "I was nicknamed Mail gadda, because I used to run very fast, like an express train. Also because my hair used to stand out in front."
Sharing anecdotes from his childhood, SRK revealed, "I once convinced my chemistry teacher to give me good marks by telling her I was like her son. I also used to feign an attack of epilepsy very often. I'd 'faint' in the classroom and the teachers had to take off their shoes for me to smell. Once, when we had a new teacher, I 'fainted' and the other kids convinced him that if he didn't give me the suede shoes he was wearing, I'd die. He had to roam barefoot the rest of the day."
