Witty Shah Rukh Khan takes the stage

The actor addressed rumours around his life as he spoke at a TED event.

Superstar Shah Rukh Khan, who delivered a TED Talk titled Thoughts on humanity, fame and love, made use of all his wit for the event. He even addressed rumours that his youngest child, AbRam, all of four, is actually the son of his older child, Aryan, 19.

He delivered the speech at Vancouver two weeks ago, and the video was only released on Thursday. “Four years ago, my lovely wife Gauri and me decided to have a third child,” he recollected. “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 when now you say ‘hello’ to him, he just turns around and says, ‘But bro, I didn’t even have a European driving licence.’”

He continued, “Reality became virtual, and virtual became real. I started to feel that I couldn’t be who I wanted to be, or say what I actually thought. And humanity, at this time, completely identified with me. Both of us were going through a mid-life crisis. Humanity, like me, was becoming an overexposed prima donna.”
