In an interview to Femina, Shah Rukh Khan was at his wittiest best, especially when it came to talking about his family, primarily, his daughter Suhana. In an excerpt from the interview, which featured in Mumbai Mirror, we saw that the superstar has the best ground-rules for anyone who would dare to date his precious daughter. Here they are –
Rules for dating Suhana:
1. Get a job.
2. Understand I don’t like you.
3. I’m everywhere.
4. Get a lawyer.
5. She’s my princess, not your conquest.
6. I don’t mind going back to jail.
7. Whatever you do to her, I will do to you.
Elaborating on how close he is to his daughter, SRK said that there are days when he feels down and she’s the only reason that inspires him to get up and go to work. He also said that while he is encouraging of Suhana’s wish to be an actress, the mandate is to study first.
Suhana is more theatre-oriented and has been doing plays in college. The best part is that she doesn’t want to learn (acting) from me. I want her to feel attractive, beautiful and respected, and more importantly, I want her to work hard.
He also spoke about the wage gap between actors and actresses and how unfair the entire system is.
She can be an actor if she has the passion and guts to work five times harder than me and get paid 10 times less than I do, if times don’t change for women actors.
I don’t think I say this enough, I love you Shah Rukh Khan.
