Bollywood King Star, Shah Rukh Khan, father of 3 kids, is planning to quit smoking and drinking alcohol for a healthier life and for his family, and mostly for his 4 year old Abram.
This remark came during a session at the second day of the India Today Conclave.
Asked if being an old parent he feared not getting enough time to spend with AbRam,
he says, “Yes, that’s an issue, that thought comes in my head, it came last night. One way to look at it is to keep yourself healthy. The presence of a little child at the age of 50, it is a good thing. It makes me come alive, it makes me see innocence and love in a different way,” he said.
Shahrukh wants to spend the next 20-25 years of his life with his kids and so he has been maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
“Having said that, will I be there to do the same thing that I did with my older kids? Yes, that is a worry. So that keeps you smoking less, drinking less, exercising more. I am planning to give up all (smoking, drinking, etc) and try to be healthier and happier,” he said.
On the perks of social media
“The good point about social media is you can put your point across. I do find good-thinking, smart, intelligent people going out there and kind of making a fool of themselves by refuting (rumours). You can’t spend your life explaining things and what you feel and what you mean to people,” he said.
