- Kangana had called Karan Johar the 'flag bearer of nepotism'
- "I don't understand this talk," said SRK
- Kajol earlier said that for her nepotism is a 'moot point'
"I don't understand this discussion (on nepotism). When I hear the word 'nepotism', I feel the other person is talking about Napoleon. Even though I know enough English, still I don't understand it and the discussion. Whether I agree or disagree -- I don't even understand it so how can I have an opinion?" SRK added.
Shah Rukh, who is married to Gauri, has three children, Aryan, 19, Suhana, 17 and AbRam, 4. Aryan is studying films in California. SRK says that he wants his children to make a name for themselves and has no problem even if they enter the film industry. "I want my kids to make a name for themselves on their own feet. If they want to become marine biologist, then she should become that. If they want to become an actor or a filmmaker, then that's also great," he told IANS.
Meanwhile, a couple of days ago, Kajol, who has starred with SRK in blockbuster films like Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge and Baazigar, said that for her, nepotism is a 'moot point.' "I think it is a debate brought on by two personalities (referring to Karan and Kangana) who have decided to quote-unquote each other. I honestly think it's a moot point because every child wants to grow up and be like their parents," she told PTI.
Shah Rukh Khan is currently awaiting the release of Jab Harry Met Sejal, which hits the screens tomorrow (August 4). The Imtiaz Ali-directed film stars Anushka Sharma opposite SRK.
