Mumbai: Shah Rukh Khan is elated that the cameo by his youngest child AbRam in ‘Happy New Year’ is fetching compliments. The actor, 48, said he received many messages about AbRam’s appearance in the end credits but the best compliment came from his co-star Deepika Padukone.
Not Ranbir or Ranveer, guess who Deepika wants to do her next film with? SRK’s son!
AbRam is Shah Rukh’s third child born via surrogacy last year.
“AbRam is looking adorable in the film. The best compliment I got was from Deepika. She said she wants to do her next film with him (AbRam) as she find him adorable,” Shah Rukh Khan told reporters during the success party of the movie.

When asked about playing with his children, the actor said, “Aryan and I used to play FIFA video games and otherwise I play football and cricket with him. With AbRam, I only do the head bang. He keeps searching in the iPad where he can utter words like A B and few animals sounds… so he does play,” he added.
Talking about his latest Diwali release, which according to Shah Rukh Khan’s production company Red Chillies Entertainment, has managed to rake in a record Rs 108.86 crore in box office collections on the opening weekend, the actor said the numbers will keep increasing with every big release.
“I have always maintained that numbers keep changing as big films keep coming on holidays and in weekends. When I was being asked this during ‘Chennai Express’, I said maybe next one is going to bigger and better because the screens and platforms are increasing.
“The days of silver jubilee are gone. ‘Happy New Year’ has released in 6,000 theatres so all the people reach to films in first week,” Shah Rukh Khan said.
