“Shah Rukh sir and Sanjay sir were very hands-on parents and always found time for us. Shah Rukh sir would help Suhana and me train for our sports day and our Taekwondo classes. In fact, one of them would always be present to help us out, be it for our annual day function, football matches, whatever it was. It was and still is like a large family. They were also huge inspirations while growing up."
“Who isn’t a fan of Shah Rukh Khan? But I am a very big fan of the person he is off-screen as well. He made a huge contribution to shaping me into the person I am today. He always ensured that we were raised well and were treated just like other kids."
