Shah Rukh Khan is writing a book for daughter Suhana on ‘acting’


Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan revealed on a television chat show that he is writing a book on acting for his 14-year-old daughter Suhana.

The actor, who was on 'The Anupam Kher Show – Kuch Bhi Ho Sakta Hai', divulged that Suhana, who stays in Mumbai, cherishes a desire to become an actor like her father.

Shah Rukh Khan said that Suhana is keen on becoming an actor as she grows up and the superstar father is very supportive of her decision.

The actor said that he respects all his female co-stars and would love to see Suhana in the league of current day divas like Deepika Padukone, Anushka Sharma to name a few.

Shah Rukh Khan said that he is also writing a book only for Suhana to give her tips on acting. The doting father of three, elaborated that the book titled 'To Suhana, On Acting, From Papa', only consists of small paras of his style of acting should his daughter ever need tips on acting. The 'Chak De! India' actor however feels that Suhana should invent a style of her own.

Talking about his elder son Aryan's step into Bollywood, Shah Rukh Khan said that its a trend for an actor's son to become an actor, therefore Aryan may follow his footsteps. But King Khan was more sure about Suhana's acting career than Aryan.

Meanwhile, Anupam Kher also revealed that Shah Rukh Khan has penned a book on his life titled '20 years of a Decade'. Shah Rukh said that he started the book as a therapeutic device on the advice of film maverick Mahesh Bhatt. He revealed that the book which comprises pivotal points of his life was supposed to be over after he completed a decade in Bollywood, thus the name.

But, SRK found that important incidents of his life piled one after another and he could never end his book.

Shah Rukh Khan also opened up about various aspects of his life – his bond with his children and acting – on the show.

With a slight slip in modesty, King Khan also said that he was 'the last of the superstars'. Shah Rukh Khan said, that though many things make him happy, but nothing overpowers the happiness of listening to the director say 'action' when he is standing before the camera.

Shah Rukh Khan is currently shooting for his friend and director Farah Khan's 'Happy New Year' which also stars, Deepika Padukone, Abhishek Bachchan, Boman Irani in lead roles. The film is slated to release on October 23 this year.

Gauri Khan dodges question on driver's arrest

Superstar Shah Rukh Khan's wife Gauri today refused to answer questions about her family's driver being arrested for allegedly raping a minor maid.

The 43-year-old producer-interior designer along with her son Aryan and daughter Suhana, was in the capital to inaugurate a bakery shop 'The Brown Box' of her cousin Priyanka Tiwari.

This was Gauri's first public appearance since the case came to light.

"I will not answer any personal questions. I am here for my sister's bakery launch and will only speak about that. I am here to bless her and share her joy with her as it was her dream to open her own bakery store one day and I am happy to be a part of the day," she told reporters here.

"If I will talk about my own things then the focus would be shifted from her (Priyanka). And I don't want that to happen," the mother of three said.

Dressed in blue denims teamed with a white top, Gauri said it has always been a bliss to visit her hometown.

"I am from Delhi and I spent all my childhood and teenage here. It feels great to be here as my parents are in Delhi," she said.
