Mumbai: Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan, who is a doting father to his children Aryaan and Suhana, feels parents should spend more quality time with their kids.
"Each time I am away from home for long I make sure that on return I have spent enough time and catch up with my children. I am sure a lot of fathers today go through this guilt as they may have missed seeing their child grow," said the actor-producer who recently shot for a toothpaste commercial where he plays a loving father.
"In most cases, fathers never realize this as they have been busy with work, office meetings, deals and catching up with friends that they tend to miss out on smaller but important moments of their child`s growing years."
"Children are impressionable. So, parenting is not about you, your feelings, or your thoughts on how the child should develop. Instead it is about the person your child is and can be. While most of us did not figure out what we wanted to be until we were older, a lot of us had ideas about the types of careers, the type of person and what we want out of life as we grew up," the 44-year-old star said.
Being a parent is the greatest joy for Khan and playing the perfect father is the best role ever, he said.
"I am the actor-entertainer, it is definitely my children that offer unconditional love and bring entertainment and joy to my life," he added.
