Bollywood celebrities and eminent personalities voted in Mumbai, India's financial and entertainment capital, in the fourth phase of the Lok Sabha elections today. Superstar Shah Rukh Khan and his wife Gauri were among the celebs who came out to vote. Accompanying the couple, was their five-year-old son AbRam, who the actor said he brought along to experience the difference between "voting" and "boating".
"The little one was a bit confused between 'boating' and 'voting', so took him along to experience the difference," Shah Rukh Khan tweeted today along with a picture of his family.
