Shahrukh opens up about Suhana Khans paparazzi incident:
Shah Rukh Khan recently spoke about the pressures faced by his kids of having a celebrity father and how intelligently they are handling it. This is what he told a leading daily. “When my children come out with me for a party, it does not mean they are doing it so that they can be in films. They are simply going out with their father. Recently, Gauri had designed a restaurant, so we all went there as a family. But, we knew pictures would be clicked. So, Suhana came as my date. It was the first time that she was nicely dressed up for a public event. And, they were her mother’s clothes. So, it was very sweet. I find it very strange when people are like, 'yeh baahar aayi hai kyunki actress banna chahti hai'. They are still studying and are very young."
He added he’s aware Aryan, Suhana and AbRam will never be left alone by the media. “I can’t ask for it as it’s a part of my job. And, I can never blame the media for it. At the same time, I also know that –– especially in India –– nobody is going to ever mistreat them as everyone loves me too much. The other day, I knew which photographers had taken the pictures of Suhana. I could have easily told them, ‘please be a little careful with the pictures’. And, I know they would’ve done that. After all, I have known them for too long. They respect the kids too. I think it’s alright, though, my kids may not understand it. Also, they’re not as experienced as me. So, they might not be able to handle it."
He revealed his kids know they will always be facing an invasion of privacy. “Yes, sometimes, privacy is invaded. As for my kids, at the end of the day, they are Shah Rukh Khan’s children. So, they have to deal with it. Even when Suhana came out of the screening, she called me saying, ‘Papa, can you send me a car; my car is not coming’. So, I sent Ravi, my bodyguard. I didn’t go running down. I think things were alright; it’s not as if she was hassled or anything.”
