Father named Shahrukh
Shahrukh says, ‘Yes, I was quite surprised. This name is not registered anywhere. But she wanted my name to be Abdur.

When I grew up, my cousins used to tease me saying that when your marriage happens, we will sing this song – Abdur Rahman Ki Main Abdur Rahmania. This was an old song. After this Shahrukh told that his father named him Shahrukh. Which means, the one with the face like Prince. Talking about the work front, Shahrukh Khan will soon be seen in the film Pathan. Deepika Padukone and John Abraham will be in the lead role with him in this film.
