Shahrukh Khan told a leading daily that he was very close to his parents and his father used to call him Yaara. He says the rapport that Shahrukh's parents shared with him is what he shares with his kids.
Shahrukh says, "I'm just the kind of dad that my father was to me. But Aryan and Suhana call me a monster! (laughs) don't have many friends. My kids are my closest allies, best friends. And I can share all my deep, dark secrets, my happiest or saddest moments with them."
However, Shahrukh Khan also says that his kids are more close to his wife Gauri as she is the one who is always there for them. Shahrukh is mostly busy because of work.
