SRK has never been the one to shy away from the media, but after the controversy that happened last year, the actor has consciously refrained from speaking with the media. So this year on the occasion of Eid celebrations at Mannat, when the actor addressed media, he began with, “Last year, on my birthday, I had made a simple comment that was blown out of proportion. So much so that I couldn’t even enjoy my birthday and I hold that against everyone.” SRK further elaborated saying, “Whatever I had said was a good thing. It was a decent thing. There was nothing religious about it or anything wrong. I was telling those things to the youth of our country. So please, this time, don’t ask such questions and spoil my Eid.”

You had once said you wish you could go out cycling with your kids.
I went once with Suhana but so many people gathered that it got awkward. That morning Aryan also with me on a cycle. When I am in Dubai or London I wear a hoodie and go out cycling for sure. I have very nice cycles which I take out with my children. But I don’t think they enjoy it as much. Maybe when Abram is little older I will take him cycling too.
