The Baadshah of Bollywood Shah Rukh Khan is one of the most desirable actors from the country. Recently in an interview, SRK who is also a father to three opened up about his take being a director.

Mentioning that it was difficult for him to get into direction, he said, "I can imagine what the story is going to be like. However, I don’t ‘really know’ it. I believe that if you are going to helm a film then you should be aware of the plot. You've to be able to say confidently 'this is what my story is."  

Adding to his previous statement, Shah Rukh also went on to reveal that his five-year-old son AbRam was also another major reason as to why he was not keen on venturing into direction as he did not want to miss out being a part of his little one's growing up years. Saying that it was absolutely impossible to write a story having AbRam around, he continued, "I have a little one right now. So, if I became a director, I would be locked in a room for two years, which is not a good thing to do at present.''

On the work front, King Khan was last seen in Aanand L Rai's Zero alongside Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma. The actor is also speculated to be a part of Farhan Akhtar's Don 3 and Rakesh Sharma's biopic Saare Jahan Se Achcha.
