Bollywood star Shah Rukh Khan might be known as a doting father to his three kids but the actor has claimed he indulges them more than needed.
The 50-year-old actor said he is a proud father to Aryan, 19, Suhana, 16 and toddler AbRam, who celebrated his third birthday last week. ““I am a very indulgent father. In fact, I am over indulgent. I spoil them a lot,” SRK told reporters at the launch of KidZania, a global indoor theme park.
From taking the little one to IPL matches to playing host to his daughter’s friends, SRK’s love for his children is not hidden from his fans and the actor says he loves to spoil the kids.
When asked whether AbRam is fond of rides and if the actor would bring him to KidZania, Shah Rukh said, “I think AbRam would love to come here. When I thought of making this (KidZania), I wanted to do it for my kids but by the time it got made, they grew up. So, now, I would love to get AbRam here. But first I will take him to the Ghatkopar one.”
For the actor, bringing such an experience for kids to India is a matter of pride and he said this endevour stands as most special among all the ventures that he has forayed into. “I am very proud of this. The Mumbai one has been doing great and that encouraged me to bring KidZania to Delhi/NCR. In fact, this one is far bigger than the other park. I am sure kids and families will love it. Out of everything that I have ever done, this is what I am most proud of, that I have done something for children,” he said.

Shah Rukh intends to open the park in Chennai, Benguluru and of course Kolkata, a city the “Dilwale” star shares a special bond with. “We will take it to Chennai and Benguluru and Kolkata too... The process takes time as we need a huge place and its entrance and exit should be safe for kids. Also training of the staff is an important task as families will leave their children with the people here. But these are long term plans which we will fulfill slowly and gradually,” he added.
During the endearing interaction, Shah Rukh revealed that as a child he wanted to become either an army officer or a teacher.
