The radiologists’ association has asked the state health department to inquire into news reports claiming that actor Shah Rukh Khan’s child through surrogacy is a male.


Although Khan has not confirmed the news, reports last week claimed that he and wife Gauri were set to have a boy through surrogacy.

However, these news reports have not gone down well with the state’s Indian Radiological and Imaging Associations (IRIA).

“We have written to the state health department to find out how the actor came to know about the unborn child’s sex when sex determination is illegal in India,” said Dr Jignesh Thakkar, coordinator for the Pre-Conception Pre-Natal Diagnostic Techniques (PCPNDT) Act, IRIA.

In the wake of the reports of skewed sex ratio across the state including Mumbai, radiologists are under the scanner of the state health department for allegedly conducting illegal sex determination.


“Though filling of form F [mandatory while conducting a ultrasound] has nothing to do with sex determination, radiologists are caught for it under the act,” said Dr Sanjeev Mani, senior radiologist, Holy Family Hospital, Bandra.

In the email sent to the top state health department officials,  including state health minister Suresh Shetty, IRIA has asked for an investigation and action against those concerned.

Doctors say there is a breach of law on the part of celebrities. “If news reports are true then it is a clear that the celebrities can get away with breaking the law,” said Thakker.

Health experts said the PCPNDT Act did not apply in case the sex determination was done outside the country.

State health officials said they are collecting information.
