Proud dad...

Let's be honest...I am not a great fan of Shah Rukh Khan's movies...especially post DDLJ...probably the only movies that I liked since DDLJ, were Swades and Main Hoon Na...but that is another story altogether...

What I found interesting was this story...he found time and took the effort to take part in his son's school's sports competition, and not jut take part, but won !

Here is an interesting excerpt...
If you had been a young father at this school sporting event today, you might not have felt inclined to clap very hard.

The announcer was businesslike: “Mr S. Khan, father of Aryan Khan, please come to the podium.”

A 40-year-old wearing a grin familiar to millions stepped proudly forward to receive his medal.

Superstar Shahrukh Khan had just pocketed the gold at the 100-metre sprint for parents at his child’s school sports meet.

And the best part about this article was...

And here’s where Munim and the other young fathers — worrying how to live up to expectations at home from now on — have reason to feel a bit hard done by.

The boy who came second to Aryan was named Arjun Tendulkar.

Battle of the stars - at a different level !
