Like many other Bollywood celebs, actor Shah Rukh Khan also cast his vote with wife Gauri Khan in Mumbai on April 29, 2019. The superstar was accompanied by his youngest kid, AbRam Khan at the polling booth. SRK taking his little munchkin along while exercising his democratic right made for a cute sight. But, there’s a legit reason behind why SRK did so. The actor has made an Instagram post revealing why he took AbRam to the polling booth today.
Shah Rukh posted a picture of himself with Gauri and AbRam from outside the polling booth on Instagram. In the caption, he revealed that the little one didn’t know how was ‘voting’ different from ‘boating’ and therefore, he thought of taking the kid along. The caption of SRK’s post read, “Little one was a bit confused between ‘Boating’ and Voting, so took him along to experience the difference.” (sic)
SRK is busy with the ongoing IPL tournament these days. However, he made sure he was casting his vote as he landed in Mumbai in the last hours of voting and immediately rushed to the polling booth with his family. In a video that’s going viral on social media, he can be seen listening to a female officer inside the booth who’s making him understand the entire process of voting discreetly. Check out the video here:
Despite his hectic work schedule, Shah Rukh has made sure to utilise his star power to influence people to go and vote. Recently, he released a video in which he was seen rapping and asking the citizens of India to leave everything aside and turn up at the polling booths to exercise their right to vote.
On the work front, the superstar claims that he hasn’t signed any new project after Zero, that released last year in December. The actor revealed in an interview recently that he was hoping the audience in China to like the film after it bombed at the Box Office in India.
