Shahrukh Khan made a very candid confession about his kids in a recent interview. The actor, who is known as the king of romance, said that he is very shy in real life and that's why he can't talk about s*x education with his three children Aryan, Suhana and AbRam.
SRK also revealed that he is very friendly with his kids because of the relationship he shared with his father. Read what he said exactly and his other interesting statements from the interview below.
SRK On S*x Education
In an interview to Bombay Times, Shahrukh Khan said, ''My mother gave me s*x education classes. For me, it's the other way, do I sit my kids down and talk to them? No. I am extremely friendly with my children and if I am not being too presumptuous, I think it's because of the relationship that I shared with my father. Also, I am personally very shy so I may not be able to educate my children about s*x, so I don't bring that up. Sometimes while watching films together, I feel that they are perhaps a little more educated about it than I am. Maybe, I should take a little class from them.''
Shahrukh Khan's Philosophy Towards His Children
"I have a simple philosophy towards my children or the people who I love. Two aspects I never question. First, is their action, which I believe is all good. Second, is their ability to say 'I don't know'. If I ask my son why he did something and he tells me, 'I don't know', it's a good enough answer. In schools when you are asked a question and you say that you don't know, it's often humiliating. It is a child's right not to know. And even an adult's right. At 51, it's my right not to know and my self-confidence is really high even though you ask me something and I don't know it."
Shahrukh On Relationships
‘'Love changes and I know that better than anyone else, I am the most romantic hero in the world. You have got to keep love alive whatever happens. Abhi toh pyaar ho gaya, toh khatam ho gayi baat. Aisa nahin hota. Sometimes, I come across stuff like... couples in a relationship for long need to go out more often, have s*x twice a week and compliment each other. This is the kind of advice which you get in self-help books. My advice is that you should not follow all that.''
I Never Take Anything For Granted: Shahrukh
"Talking about my fans, if I have millions of people loving me, it means I have to work million times harder to keep that going. More than that, and I don't want to sound self-obsessed here, but I love 'me' even more. I have to do it for myself, so that I can love myself more by doing better work. I have never taken anything for granted. I wouldn't take a single shot of my life for granted. I want it to be my best."
Shahrukh On Expressing Himself
‘'If I were any more expressive, I would be in jail now. I feel completely free, nothing binds me down, other than decency and respect for someone's space. I am very courteous and I always keep that in mind. Whenever I am with my people, I express everything, whether it's cracking jokes or putting forth my point of view. I live life with abandon and freedom.''
Shahrukh On Working With Younger Actors
"I think actors of the younger generation feel older when they work with me. I tell them, 'C'mon guys, you can be a little younger'. I get really turned on by actors who are trying to do something new and not just coming on the set, saying their lines and leaving. When I see them, I feel I'm exactly like them, so I don't feel the generation gap.''
In the same interview, Shahrukh Khan also talked about his upcoming film Dear Zindagi with Alia Bhatt, ''This film is extremely important not only for me but for them, too. I don't want to sound pro-feminist and say that these girls have made a beautiful film yaar, but they really have. I've always said that I enjoy making films with women. This is Gauri's second film and Alia's ninth.''
Shahrukh Khan further added, ''I'm aware that they have this respect towards me, but I haven't made them feel that way, they were just kind to feel that. I guess as we started spending time together, they realised that I'm as sweetly silly as they are, and also as lost in terms of trying to do a film which speaks their language.''
