Why Shah Rukh Khan's son may not become an actor
"He (Aryan) doesn't have what it takes to be an actor and he realises that too but he's a good writer."
Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan revealed on a chat show that his son Aryan may give Bollywood a miss, although he is currently studying films in the US.
Shah Rukh Khan appeared on David Letterman's talk show where he opened up about how he deals with his children's 'relationship problems'. The 53-year-old actor said that though his son is a 'good writer', he doesn't have what it takes to be an actor, reported NDTV.
"He (Aryan) doesn't have what it takes to be an actor and he realises that too but he's a good writer... I think wanting to be an actor has to come from within. Something you really need to do and find a set of skill that helps you do it and learn it. But I think I realised it from him when he said that to me," Shah Rukh Khan said on the show.
"He came to me and said, 'I don't think I want to act'. His issue was - which I think is practical and honest - he said, 'Every time I'll be compared to you... and I don't want to be in that position'," Shah Rukh Khan said on the show My Next Guest Needs No Introduction With David Letterman.
Regarding his daughter Suhana, 19, Shah Rukh Khan did not talk about her acting in films. Instead he spoke about how he spends most of the time with his children by cooking for them, chatting with them and going on trips with them.
He added he is his children's go-to-person for relationship advice - he made it clear how much he dislikes it.
Suhana, who is also studying films in the US, talked about her dream of becoming an actor in an interview with Vogue magazine last year. The talk show aired on Netflix on October 25, on Shah Rukh Khan and Gauri's anniversary.
