Interestingly, King Khan’s son Aryan Khan posted a lovable picture with mum Gauri Khan instead of Shah Rukh and captioned it saying, “The Birth Giver”. Now going by this post, Aryan probably shares more of a bro-like bonding with his daddy cool SRK while he is extremely close to his mum Gauri because the three words that he’s mentioned in his caption speaks so much about the unconditional bond he shares with his mum.

Aamir Khan recently shared a picture of himself with son Azad Khan and we saw his wife Kiran Rao sporting a wide smile. Aamir on Father’s Day eve, retweeted the same picture along with a photo of himself with daughter Ira Khan and his elder son Junaid Khan. The photographs are all worth framing as they capture some great looking memories. In all of these clicks, we see Aamir Khan’s side as a caring father.
