It goes without saying that being Shah Rukh Khan’s son brings with it a certain amount of media attention. Whether it’s at an IPL game, or just out on the streets, at just 15, Aryan Khan finds himself in the spotlight. But his doting superstar dad, it seems, wants to shield him from all this. As a result, the star kid, who currently studies at the Dhirubhai Ambani International School in the city, is set to move to a school in London this September.

Our source from the Dhirubhai Ambani International School tell us that SRK has enrolled Aryan at the Sevenoaks School in London. Located about half an hour away from Central London, it’s one of the oldest and most prestigious schools in the city. The buzz is that Suhana too will be sent to the same school.

On conditions of anonymity, our source says, “Aryan’s now nearing his college years. Shah Rukh wants to take the media glare away from his life and have him focus on his education. He also wants Aryan to have an identity of his own. Once he finishes his (current) semester here, he will go to London.”

The source adds, “SRK and his family frequently visit London as it’s one of their favourite holiday destinations, so the Khans will be around to spend time with him. Also, there, Aryan will have more liberty to choose what he wants to study and pursue a career of his choice.”

Meanwhile, Aryan’s younger sister, Suhana, 12, will continue to study in Mumbai. Our source also adds that she’s now become quite health-conscious: “Suhana makes sure she does not eat junk even when at school. She is particular about what she eats.” The source adds, “Suhana is good at her studies, and very creative, with all the writing she does.”
