Just a couple of minutes ago, we had given you a glimpse of the TED Talks that Shah Rukh Khan gave in Vancouver after the actor was invited to share his inspirational journey with the audience. Amidst sharing his journey and while talking about the disadvantages of the fast growing internet, Shah Rukh Khan shared a rather shocking rumour that were doing the rounds about his son Aryan Khan that had left his family quite disturbed.
We all are aware that Shah Rukh Khan and Gauri Khan became parents to their third child four years ago, AbRam. However, post the birth of AbRam, which was considered to be birth by surrogacy, there were several speculations and the high profile celebrity couple was subjected to extreme scrutiny.
From being trapped in a case regarding sex determination to moral policing revolving around surrogacy, the couple faced several setbacks. Amidst this, there were apparently reports claiming that AbRam was actually the son of Aryan Khan, Shah Rukh Khan’s eldest son who was then 15 years old.
Talking about the same, the actor said, “Four years ago, my lovely wife Gauri and me decided to have a third child. It was claimed on the net that he was the love child of our first child who was 15 years old. Apparently he had sown his wild oats with a girl while driving her car in Romania. And yeah, there was a fake video to go with it. And we were so disturbed as a family.”
While this incident had left many surprised as we wondered about the source of such reports on the net, Shah Rukh Khan mentioned that listening to these stories were indeed disturbing for them as a family. However, knowing his impeccable sense of humour he was quick to add, “My son who is 19 now, even now when you say ‘Hello’ to him, he just turns around and says, ‘But bro, I didn’t even have a European driving license’”.
Although the last bit was added in good humour, Shah Rukh Khan showcased the kind of effect that such maligning reports could have on one’s life.
Besides this, Shah Rukh Khan also shared some deeper insights about his life as he also spoke about how he is perceived as the Baadshah of Bollywood yet admitted about how he failed when it came to reinventing his image.
