While six-pack abs and eight-pack abs are quite common these days, the fascination with them started after Shah Rukh Khan flaunted his chiseled six-packs for his 2007 film Om Shanti Om, also starring Deepika Padukone, Arjun Rampal, among others. His fans were in awe of his transformation and it was in 2007 during an appearance on Karan Johar’s chat show Koffee With Karan that King Khan revealed one of the reasons he got the abs was because of his son Aryan. He had appeared on the show with Farah Khan back then.
On the show, Karan Johar asked Shah Rukh Khan, “What made you make this change?” Replying to this, he said how Aryan Khan (nine years old at the time) was upset that his father was fat. He also revealed that his son got in a fight with a girl about the same. Shah Rukh said, “My son feels I am fat. He beat up a girl. First, she called me an ‘a**hole’. He didn’t react. Then she said I looked ugly in Kaun Banega Crorepati but he didn’t react and controlled himself. Finally, when she said, ‘Your father is fat,’ he kicked her.”
Shah Rukh revealed that he got angry with Aryan after which Aryan said that it wasn’t the girl’s fault, it’s Shah Rukh’s. “Why are you fat? You are not ugly, I didn’t mind. You look handsome on KBC. You’re not an a**hole, I know. You’re a cool guy. But you are fat, papa,” Shah Rukh quoted Aryan saying on the show.
Shah Rukh Khan’s physique that he flaunted with an open shirt in the song Dard-e-Disco from Om Shanti Om left his fans amazed. ALSO READ: From Shah Rukh Khan, Tabu To Shahid Kapoor, Bollywood Celebrity Cameos That You May Have Missed In The First Glance
