His professional commitments hardly give him family space but Shah Rukh Khan likes to spend whatever time he gets with his three children — Aryan, Suhana and AbRam.
The 50-year-old actor, who is married to producer-designer Gauri Khan, said he is the best friend of his kids.
“I won’t say that I understand everything about my kids. But after shooting for 10-12 hours, I make it a point that I go back home and spend time with my kids… I know that I am their best friend, with whom they can share anything. I also behave like a friend with them. I love being with children,” he told reporters here.
Shah Rukh said just few days ago he flew to London to have fun time with Aryan and Suhana. (Read: Shah Rukh Khan ducks question on intolerance)
“Just two days ago, I went to London to spend an extended weekend with Aryan and Suhana as they had off. We hardly talk anything intelligent.
“We just lied down on our sofa, watched movies and ate chips. I think I was able to give them that confidence to come and share things with me and if they have done anything wrong they would get their share of punishment too.”
The actor said he was very naughty as a kid and used to blew up his neighbour’s letter-box with crackers during Diwali. (Also read: Shah Rukh Khan’s fans can interact with him on live video social platform)
“We used to stay in apartments and I used to do many naughty stuff. I was once caught for doing one wrong thing and got scolding too. There was a girl in our building and everybody used to like her. So, when you like somebody, you try to grab her attention like the way I do in my films. I blew up her letter-box. Her mother came to complain about it to my father…,” he said.
