Superstar Shah Rukh Khan says he has made a collection of some old classic English and Hindi films which he wants to show to his son Aryan, who aspires to enter the filmdom, reports PTI. Aryan would soon begin his formal education in films at a prestigious institution in USA.

“I am showing Aryan a lot of films because he will be going to a film school now. I have made a folder which has all the great English classics like ‘The Untouchables’, ‘Goodfellas’ and Michael Douglas’ ‘Falling Down’. Right now I am showing him English films,” Shah Rukh said here yesterday.

“I have also made another folder that has Hindi classics like ‘Jaane Bhi Do Yaaron’, ‘Sholay’, ‘Do Aakhen Barah Haath’ and ‘Devdas’, both Dilip Saab’s and mine. I want him to see more films and he does watch a lot of films including mine.”

When asked if his children are following his footsteps, the 50-year-old star says, “At the moment, my kids are following my footsteps as far as education goes. I had done my masters and my kids are pursuing their graduation.

“Whether they will become actors or not it is their decision. Now they are getting educated. It is not necessary that because their father is an actor so they should also become one. I would be equally happy if they chose to become something else,” he said.
