Actor Shah Rukh Khan recently opened up on how his children have been raised as far as religion is concerned. He said that he has always told his children they are Indians, and that they have no religion, and should not even have one.
Jab wo school gaye to school mein form mein bharna hota hai ki religion kya hai. Jab meri beti chhoti thi, usne aa ke puchha mujhse ek baar ki, ‘Papa, hum kaun se religion ke hain?’ Toh maine usme ye likha ki hum Indian hi hain yaar, koi religion nahi hai. Aur hona bhi nahi chahiye.
And now a video clip from a recent episode of a popular dance reality show, which Shah Rukh recently attended as a guest is going viral on social media. In the video, the actor says that as a family, they’ve never discussed their religion. He adds that his wife Gauri is Hindu, he is ‘Musalman’, and their children Aryan, Suhana and AbRam are ‘Hindustan’.
Hum ne koi Hindu-Musalman ki baat hi nahi ki. Meri biwi jo hai Hindu hai, main Musalman hoon. Aur mere jo bacche hain, woh Hindustan hain.
Watch Shah Rukh’s full statement in the video, below.
