Shah Rukh Khan says his children are currently busy with their studies and are too young to decide whether to join Bollywood or not.

The 49-year-old actor, who has three children - Aryan, Suhana and AbRam - with wife Gauri, said like any concerned parent he wants his kids to finish their studies first.

“My children are too young to decide on becoming actors. They have to finish their studies first. I am very clear about it and they are very clear about it,” Shah Rukh said.

The Happy New Year star said it is up to his kids to decide on their career path and they don’t have to necessarily become an actor like him.

“An actor’s son or daughter need not be an actor. I have left it to them. The first part of my job is to educate them so that they can make the right decision of what they want.

“At this point of time there is no talk of AbRam, Aryan or Suhana becoming actors... They have to study first,” said the actor, who was in Delhi for the launch of real estate company Mahagun’s new luxury housing ‘The M Collection’.

Shah Rukh was also recently in Kolkata along with his children to attend this season’s opening IPL match played between his team Kolkata Knight Riders and Mumbai Indians.

Aryan and Suhana have been regularly cheering KKR during the previous IPL seasons but it was the first outing for Shah Rukh’s youngest son AbRam, who was seen having a good time at the match.

“My little one shows interest in everything I take him to. Poor guy doesn’t understand much. We all thought he would go off to sleep but we were very surprised. He was up till 2am. He was really enjoying and also learned two new words, ‘yay’ and ‘KKR’,” the actor said.
