New Delhi: Superstar Shah Rukh Khan wants his son AbRam to grow up to be a hockey player and represent India one day, reported news agency IANS. Speaking at the sidelines of Indian Premier League match at Eden Garden on Sunday, Shah Rukh Khan told Sadhna News that the five-year-old has shown interest towards the game of football, reported IANS. Speaking about AbRam's interest in sports, he said, "He is not yet playing cricket, he is playing a bit of football.

Here are pictures of Suhana and Abram with Shah Rukh and the others at Eden Gardens, where the match was played.
Shah Rukh Khan's children Aryan, Suhana and AbRam have often accompanied their father to the IPL matches. In fact, AbRam was just two-year-old, when he made his official debut at the IPL matches in 2015.
At the time, Shah Rukh Khan had tweeted, "Taking so many kids for the KKR match....it's like I am a class teacher in-charge of nursery to higher secondary..."

Talking about spending time with his children and the young players of KKR, Shah Rukh said that he and his wife Gauri Khan 'keep trying to be young.' "I am always happy. I have children 21, 17 and 5 so me and my wife (Gauri) keep trying to be young. Our children and the team keep us young," Shah Rukh Khan told IANS.
Apart from IPL matches, Shah Rukh Khan has been keeping busy with his upcoming film Zero, which also stars Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma. On being asked, if he would give KKR's matches a miss due to his other work commitment, he told IANS, "No, no, I'm not going back... I will keep coming to support KKR."
The Aanand L Rai-directed film Zero is slated to release to December 21.
