Shah Rukh, the 50-year-old “Fan” star, who has taken a six-day off from his work to spend time with Suhana, says the age of 16-18 makes kids want to be closer to their parents.
“They are studying abroad, I miss them a lot but it gives me an opportunity to take some time off otherwise I am so embroiled in work.
“I have taken six days off to spend time with Suhana as she is here. The age of 16-18 somehow makes the kids want to stick to the parents even more when they get this five-six days break,” Shah Rukh told reporters in New Delhi, Jun. 1.
While his conversations with Suhana and Aryan have become interesting, the actor, like any other parent, still treats them like toddlers.
“It’s really nice, it’s quality time. It’s quite amazing the conversations I have with them. I still treat them like they are two or three-year-old, but they are adults,” he added.
When asked if they like to be treated as ‘kids,’ the actor quipped, “No, but they have a lot of respect for me.”
Shah Rukh was speaking on the sidelines of the launch of KidZania, a global indoor theme park, which the actor co-owns.
The “Chennai Express” star also spoke about his wish to adapt American crime TV series “Breaking Bad” for Indian audience.
Shah Rukh has often expressed his desire to adapt Hollywood shows here. Last year, when he spoke about making the hit “Breaking Bad” into a film, it generated a lot of interest among its fans in Delhi.
When asked if there’s any development in that respect, the actor said, “I met the gentleman who had the rights or so he said but I haven’t followed it up. Right now, I am blocked with three-four films.”
If and whenever it happens, one thing Shah Rukh is certain about is that the adaptation will be on the big screen.
