Shah Rukh Khan on an unfortunate rumor about AbRam being Aryan Khan’s love child
On the birth of AbRam, there was a disgusting rumor that AbRam was the love child of SRK’s eldest son Aryan Khan. During a TED Talk, Shah Rukh Khan finally opened out about the rumors and said,
“Four years ago, my lovely wife Gauri (Khan) and me decided to have a third child. It was claimed on the net that he was the love child of our first child, who was 15-years-old….Apparently, he had sown his wild oats with a girl while driving her car in Romania. And yeah, there was a fake video to go with it. And we were so disturbed as a family. My son, who is 19 now, even now when you say ‘hello’ to him, he just turns around and says, ‘But bro, I didn’t even have a European driving license'”.
