Shah Rukh Khan is a father of three, of whom AbRam (the youngest) was taken in in 2013. The munchkin is one of the most followed and wanted children in the town of tinsel, and even a glimpse of him is precious. But it was not an easy race for Shah Rukh and Gauri Khan when they announced her arrival through surrogacy. The actor and his wife have been charged with performing a prenatal sex test, which is illegal and even an investigation has been set up to investigate the same. SRK later opened up on the same topic and here’s everything you need to know about this flashback.
In 2013, a social activist filed a lawsuit against Shah Rukh Khan and Gauri Khan for allegedly performing a prenatal sex determination test before AbRam was born. The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) even opened an investigation for the same. We later saw SRK condemn everyone who wrote and talked about the episode.
Speaking to PTI, he said: “I didn’t like that fact when the media talked about surrogacy. I hate that. They said I had a test to determine s * x, which sucked. I am too educated to indulge in this nonsense. He was in pain… He was sick and people talked about sex determination just because he was the child of a famous movie star.
“He’ll grow up someday and maybe read all this or maybe not read too… But it’s very sad.” Just because he’s my child doesn’t make him less or more than anyone… A kid is a kid. He was ill and there were cases going on. I feel uncomfortable, ”added Shah Rukh Khan.
In the same interview, King Khan defined Munchkin AbRam as a nice kid and said, “He is very sweet, handsome and pretty. He is a pleasant child. It brings a lot of joy and happiness. It’s a lot of fun to be with him. Everyone wants to be with him. There is so much innocence and love in the baby… He is very sweet. The kids like him… I like him.
