When Shah Rukh Khan was recently in New Delhi for the Agenda Aajtak conclave, Hina Rabbani Khar, former Pakistani foreign minister who was also there, invited him to visit Pakistan. That’s when he reminisced all the times in his childhood when he visited Pakistan with his dad. He also said that he would like to take his kids Aryan, Suhana and Abram to Peshawar, the city with which he holds a special connect.
“My family is from Peshawar and few of them still live there. I would love to come to Peshawar and bring my children over because my father took me when I was 15. Then he passed away. I still have some of the greatest memories of the time I spent with my father in Peshawar, Karachi and Lahore. I just wish that I could take my children there someday” he said, speaking on it.
Shah rukh khan’s dad Taj Mohammad Khan was from Peshawar and was known to be one of the first freedom fighters. He also talked about how he learnt the art of hospitality from Peshawar. In his words, “The one thing that I learnt from there is that people there are very warm. They know how to greet their guest. I have learnt the art of loving and welcoming people from them.”
