Shah Rukh Khan's recent statement at a dance reality show has won many hearts of netizens. It's known to all that the current political climate of India is anything but peaceful. Amidst all the chaos, SRK's take on his kids' religion will win your heart! Shah Rukh and his wife Gauri Khan are parents to three children, Aryan Khan, Suhana Khan and AbRam Khan.
While shooting a special episode of television reality show Dance Plus 5, Shah Rukh said, "Humne koi Hindu-Musalman ki baat hi nahi ki. Meri biwi Hindu hai, mai Musalman hoon. Aur mere jo bacche hain, wo Hindustan hain."
He further added, "Jab wo school gae to school me wo bharna padta hai ki religion kya hai. To jab meri beti choti thi, usne aa ke pucha bhi mujhse ek baar, 'papa hum kaun se religion ke hain?' Maine usme ye likha ki hum Indian hi hain yaar, koi religion nahi hai. Aur hona bhi nahi chahiye."
Netizens are in the awe of SRK's heart-warming words. Watch the video here:
My wife is Hindu, I am a Muslim and my kids are Hindustan. My daughter was asked the religion in school form, I told her we are Indians 🇮🇳 ❤️ - The pride of India Shah Rukh Khan. #RepublicDayIndia #RepublicDay2020 pic.twitter.com/Qk95xxLT3j— Neel Joshi (@neeljoshiii) January 25, 2020
It's not the first time when Shah Rukh Khan has made it very clear that no particular religion is imposed inside his house and the Khans love to celebrate all the festivals. In fact, SRK and Gauri are known for hosting grand Eid and Diwali parties.
Talking about his kids and their religion to a leading daily, SRK had once said, "I gave my son and daughter names that could pass for generic (pan-India and pan-religious) ones - Aryan and Suhana. The Khan has been bequeathed by me so they can't really escape it."
"I pronounce it with my epiglottis when asked by Muslims and throw the Aryan as evidence of their race when non-Muslims enquire. I imagine this will prevent my offspring from receiving unwarranted eviction orders or random fatwas in the future."
As far as SRK's professional life is concerned, the superstar has not made any official announcement about his next project. He was last seen in Aanand L Rai's Zero alongside Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma.
