Mumbai: Superstar Shah Rukh Khan feels that both parents have very different roles to play in a child`s life and fathers can not be like mothers.
"A dad is the mess-maker, rule-breaker, risk-taker and the opposite of mom who is usually seen as the creator and nurturer," the 44-year-old actor said in message on Father`s Day which would be celebrated on June 20.
"We know we cannot be like the mothers, but we do know that we can make all the difference by being right there," said SRK, a doting father of Aryan, 13, and ten year-old
He also dedicated Will Smith`s `Just the Two of Us` to all the fathers who are becoming aware and taking up their responsibility seriously and turning into great dads.
According to Shah Rukh, the day gives fathers the opportunity to show and express their love and care.
"It is an appropriate platform to look at our children and credit them for bringing joy and happiness. After all, a child gives birth to a father as well. But even though it is
celebrated once a year, it is the ever after-effect of being a father that will keep us connected," he said.
He said a father`s role means different to different people so he cannot do justice by trying to define it.
"But in a traditional way, we hold the role of being the head of the family, protector and role model to our children. We are definitely the more unpredictable lot with our kids. At times we may have rocked our kids more than their moms have and rolled on the floors foolishly to play. So moms and dads are indeed different," he said.
