Indian film actor Shahrukh Khan, aka Badshah of Bollywood, King Khan and King of Romance, has acted in 75 Hindi films, ranging from romantic dramas to action thrillers. Recently, Shahrukh Khan has been in the spotlight quite frequently, due to news of his surrogate child as well as his upcoming film Chennai Express, reported the Hindustan Times.
The 47-year-old is married to Gauri Khan and together, they have two children — son Aryan and daughter Suhana. Recently, however, there have been rumours about his decision for a surrogate child and the baby’s health.
A lot has been written about the superstar’s family life, but SRK refuses to talk about it, saying it’s a “very personal matter”, and he shall break his silence when it’s appropriate.
“This is not the right time to talk about it, we are going to get on the train baby and not talk about my baby. This is very private and personal,” he said. “There is a mix of sadness and happiness about this news. Let the sad part get over, then I will talk about it. I would request that the people who are doing the interrogation to do a thorough check,” he added.
Shahrukh did not explain the sad part. However, it is being speculated that the baby in question is underweight. The surrogate baby was reportedly born on May 27.
Meanwhile, SRK is not letting his personal life affect his film’s promotional events. The music launch of Shahrukh’s Chennai Express recently was a huge success for the actor and director. Reporters were asked to wear lungis along with the superstar to go along with the film’s theme.
“It was quite an experience wearing a lungi and it was helpful because we were shooting in a hot place,” said Shahrukh.
The music of the film is given by music-directing duo, Vishal and Shekar. Directed by Rohit Shetty, Chennai Express is slated for an August 8 release.
