Actor Shah Rukh Khan, who is a doting father to his three children, Aryan, Suhana and AbRam, recently confessed that he is planning to quit smoking and drinking for his children.
The actor was present at the India Today Conclave 2017 where he said that he wants to lead a healthier life to spend some more time with his kids. Talking about the fear of not getting much time to spend with the kids, he said, “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, is a good thing. It makes me come alive, it makes me see innocence and love in a different way. 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. I don't want my children to hold that against me that I was not there.”
The Dilwale actor further also added, “I want to be there to give them advice completely out of context and irrelevant. I want to find out about their personal lives when they are hating me for doing so. I want to be cumbersome and troublesome to my children. So I should work towards it and get healthy. I am working with younger girls just to keep up with my children. I am not doing it out of any mid-life crisis. I am only doing it to make myself feel younger and get in touch with the younger me.”
