Irrfan Khan is better known for his amazing acting skills. His wife Sutapa, few days back complimented him for his acting skills.
She appreciates him by addressing him “best father in the world.” Ask the actor about it, and Irrfan, who has two sons – Babil, 18, and Ayaan, 13 – says, “That’s her over enthusiasm (laughs).”
There are different stages of being a father in the world. He says the equation of a father with his kid’s changes with time, but the most difficult phase is when the kids turn teenagers. “It’s challenging to be a father at the time. It’s similar to what happens when cubs grow. They are adamant about creating their own rules. It’s challenging to stay friendly with your kids and allows them to do what they want, and still keep a check on them,” says Irrfan.
Irrfan Khan also feels that everyone is rebel during teenager days. He included that he was a rebel. His parents didn’t know how to handle him. To handle a teenager is challenging task. There are no formulas that you can apply. Every kid is different. They have their own understanding of how they want to lead their life. You have to deal with it.”
Does he want his kids to follow in his footsteps? “I don’t want to influence their career choices. They have to explore their own worlds. They have strong interests and minds. Ayaan is a good cricketer, but he isn’t ready to learn it. – CINEWS
