Shah Rukh Khan once said that a man should never be seen without a shirt in front of his female family and friends. The actor had emphasized the importance of equity, stating that his sons would not be given any special treatment.

Shah Rukh Khan is the father of three children: Aryan Khan, AbRam Khan, and Suhana Khan. After a six-year relationship with designer Gauri Khan, he married her in 1991. In 2017, in a conversation with Femina, the ‘My Name is Khan’ actor had said, “I believe that a man in his house doesn’t have the right to go shirtless in front of his mother, sister or women friends. I tell Aryan to put on a T-shirt all the time.”

He added, “If you’d feel uncomfortable seeing your mother, daughter, sister, women friends without their clothes on, why would you expect them to accept you shirtless? It’s got nothing to do with having breasts or not—don’t do something a girl can’t do.”

Shah Rukh Khan said in a Twitter Q&A session called ‘AskSRK’ in March that the path to a woman’s heart is designed with dignity and more respect. When a fan asked him for advice on how to ‘patana’ (impress) women, Shah Rukh advised that these terms should be avoided. “Start with not using the word ‘Patana’ for a girl. Try with more respect, gentleness, and respect,” he responded.

Shah Rukh Khan’s most recent film was ‘Zero,’ which was released in December 2018. Anushka Sharma and Katrina Kaif had appeared in the film. Since Zero, he’s been on break. However, earlier this year, the actor was seen shooting for Siddharth Anand’s action drama Pathan. Deepika Padukone and John Abraham also star in the film. However, Shah Rukh Khan has remained mum about it.
