Mumbai, Nov 4 :
A sneak peek into the sets of “Piku”, with Amitabh Bachchan sporting a neck brace, led to speculation that he is unwell. But the megastar has clarified that he’s not ill and that the collar is part of his costume for the movie.
“So…media conjectures that I am ill is incorrect! That neck brace that they see me wearing is part of my costume in ‘PIKU”,” the 72-year-old, who’s shooting the movie in Kolkata, tweeted Monday.
Once the rumours of his illness began doing the rounds, Big B received a barrage of messages from his ‘extended family’ on social networking platforms.
He also clarified it on his Twitter handle.
The film is being directed by Shoojit Sircar. Big B plays father to Deepika Padukone in it.
I’ll be happy if Suhana becomes heroine: SRK
He has three kids — his eldest son Aryan is currently studying abroad and his youngest son AbRam is too young to decide his career. But Shah Rukh Khan’s daughter Suhana has set her sights on Bollywood and the doting dad has no issues about it.
AbRam — the son SRK and Gauri had via surrogacy last year — was seen in a cameo in the superstar’s “Happy New Year”.
Asked when Suhana will make such an appearance, SRK said: “She is very shy and she is the only one who wants to be an actress. I would be more than happy if my daughter becomes a Hindi film heroine. I hope she does more than a cameo.”
Shah Rukh, who turned 49 recently, is a devoted father, and he has often said that spending time with his children is his stress-buster.
Asked what the kids gifted to him on his special day, he said: “Nothing, and that’s the best part of our relationship. I do everything and they do nothing. That’s the ease of our relationship that makes it beautiful.”
During a party at home, he said his children looked after his guests very well.
“It made me feel very proud. My kids are very innocent and that’s my biggest gift,” he said.
Ayushmann wants to be anonymous?
Celebrity status seems to be taking a toll on Ayushmann Khurrana — or so it seems from a latest tweet from the actor, where he talks about going anonymous briefly.
“I’m so dependant on the world around me. I don’t even know how to buy groceries. Need to live in anonymity for a month, to learn basic life,” Ayushmann tweeted Tuesday.
The “Vicky Donor” actor has featured in films like “Nautanki Saala” and “Bewakoofiyaan”. He will next be seen in “Hawaizaada”.
