In a throwback interview with Outlook Turning Points in 2013, Shah Rukh Khan had reflected his opinion on humanity when he had opened up on naming his kids, Aryan and Suhana, with pan-religious names. He had said:

“I gave my son and daughter names that could pass for generic (pan-Indian and pan-religious) ones: Aryan and Suhana. The Khan has been bequeathed by me so they can’t really escape it. I pronounce it from my epiglottis when asked by Muslims and throw the Aryan as evidence of their race when non-Muslims enquire.”

Going further in the interview, Shah Rukh had shared the answer he gives to his kids when they ask him about their religion. He had added:

“It will also keep my two children completely confused. Sometimes, they ask me what religion they belong to and, like a good Hindi movie hero, I roll my eyes up to the sky and declare philosophically, “You are an Indian first and your religion is humanity”, or sing them an old Hindi film ditty, “Tu Hindu banega na Musalmaan banega – insaan ki aulaad hai insaan banega” set to Gangnam Style.”

In a meet and greet event, Shah Rukh was asked about his kids, Aryan, Suhana and AbRam's thoughts about him making a career in acting. The Raees actor had shared that his elder son and daughter, Aryan and Suhana had demanded their father to do one blockbuster film for their little brother, AbRam. He had continued that Aryan and Suhana used to feel that since they had grown up watching his iconic films like Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge, Dil To Pagal Hai and Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, he needs to do one more blockbuster for AbRam so that he also realises that he is the son of a superstar father.
