Bollywood Superstar Shah Rukh Khan said he is planning to quit smoking and drinking.
Speaking at the second day of the India Today Conclave at Mumbai, the Raees star said that he plans to adopt a healthier lifestyle to enable himself spend more time with his children.
Upon being asked whether he feared of getting less time with his four-year-old son AbRam, the 50-year-old actor said that is an issue he is thinking about, these days.
“That thought comes in my head, it came last night. One way to look at it is to keep yourself healthy,” he said.
The presence of a little child at the age of 50, it is a good thing. It makes me come alive, it makes me see innocence and love in a different wayShah Rukh Khan
King Khan said that he loves to spend next 20-25 years of his life with his kids and to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
Having said that, will I be there to do the same thing that I did with my older kids? Yes, that is a worry. So that keeps you smoking less, drinking less, exercising more. I am planning to give up all (smoking, drinking, etc) and try to be healthier and happierShah Rukh Khan
The actor said he lost his parents at the age of 15 and he does not want the same to happen with his children.
“I don’t want my children to hold that against me that I was not there,” he says.
I want to be there to give them advice completely out of context and irrelevant. I want to find out about their personal lives when they are hating me for doing so. I want to be cumbersome and troublesome to my children. So I should work towards it and get healthyShah Rukh Khan
“I am working with younger girls just to keep up with my children. I am not doing it out of any mid-life crisis. I am only doing it to make myself feel younger and get in touch with the younger me,” he added.
