Superstar Shahrukh Khan claims that nobody is smarter than him.
IANS asked him if he finds his elder son Aryan, who recently graduated, smarter than he was during his youth, SRK with a smile: “Nobody is smarter than me.”
“Better looking, maybe. I think so… and he wears better clothes because he takes my clothes. But smart, no.”
“I say this straight away — there is nobody smarter than me… Outside the family or inside my family. I am too cool,” SRK replied.
Shahrukh while he was here on Tuesday at KidZania, an edutainment destination.
“I try to do things for children. Sometimes it works, and sometimes it doesn’t. Mashallah, this one has worked very well. Around 10 to 15 years ago, we were a developing nation, but now India is at the cusp of being developed. One has to understand that first come ‘Roti, kapda aur makaan’. Then come entertainment and edutainment, and I think we are on the cusp of that.
“That’s why you’re seeing the IPL (Indian Premier League), the Kabaddi league, and more such things coming up. The big thing here is going to be looking after the children,” said Shah Rukh, expressing hope that “there’s a huge possibility of doing things in terms of television, films, theme parks, outdoor sports activities and more for children in India”.
“We look at the West and say, ‘How come they have so many things for their kids?’ But it is because some of them are developed nations that they can venture out into this,” he added.
