Shahrukh Khan bounces ideas off his son

Shahrukh Khan got tips from his son Aryan and passed them on to Roshan Abbas for his film Always Kabhi Kabhi

King Khan might be playing a youngster in reel life, but his real life son Aryan is the one the superstar turns to, to understand GenNext. Always Kabhi Kabhi’s director Roshan Abbas recalls, “Shahrukh gave us some great marketing inputs. He’s got a ready bouncing board at home. I think Aryan is 14 or something. So there would be times when he would hear something from Aryan and tell us to incorporate it in the film promotions, for instance.”

Abbas too depended on his nieces for input. “My sister-in-law’s kids are 18 and 20. I would eavesdrop on their conversation so much that they must be sick of it by now! But the reason is that I am trying to figure out kya pakadta hain inko,” he smiles. If the film Always Kabhi Kabhi creates wonders at the box-office, we know now to whom the superstar and filmmaker should give credit.
