I allow my children to watch all films: Shah Rukh

Mumbai, Aug 15 (IANS) When it comes to showing films to children, Shah Rukh Khan is a lenient parent and allows his son Aryan and daughter Suhana to watch all kinds of movies. The superstar says that he never makes them "shut their eyes to anything".

Currently basking in the success of "Chennai Express", Shah Rukh said: "I don't disallow my children to watch any film. They watch everything, but that does not mean that all parents should do that."

"I work in films and I do things in films that might not be right for children to watch, so it is my duty to make sure my children watch all films. I have brought them up in a way where I have never made them shut their eyes to anything," added SRK, who is married to Gauri Khan -- they have three children, including surrogate son AbRam.

Talking about "Chennai Express", he said that his daughter has seen the romantic comedy, which has a good dose of action too.

"My daughter saw it, my son is busy playing video games... She really liked it," he said.

Cinema has been often criticised for propagating bad things and influencing impressionable minds, but Shah Rukh disagrees.

"The access of information now is beyond cinema. If your children become bad, please don't blame cinema. Cinema is a good place, which you can take advantage of. I don't think its impact will be bad on children," said the 47-year-old.

At the same time, the star of hits such as "Darr", "Baazigar", "Kuch Kuch Hota Hai", "Chak De! India" and "Don", feels that the culture of making film for children should be encouraged in the country.

"I think Indians should make a lot more films for children. It is a big and a good market and there should be a lot from films to learn in a fun way," he said.
