Shah Rukh Khan reveals his unregistered childhood name: Was he another AR Rehman or Abdur Rehman?

All desis (whether Pakistani or Indian) struggle with keeping one name during childhood.

In every desi family, we see extended family members arguing over what to name their child, and changing the names seems quite a common practice.

However, who would have thought that the Bollywood king Shah Rukh Khan has had an unregistered childhood name too.

The Dilwale actor revealed this fun fact about his while appearing on an Indian Media show “The Anupam Kher Show” recently.

The ‘Veer Zaara’ star said that his grandmother had named him Abdur Rehman, according to Indian media.

Responding to Anupam Kher’s question, Shah Rukh Khan said ‘My maternal grandmother had named me Abdur Rehman in my childhood.”

“The name wasn’t registered anywhere but she wanted me to accept the name, Abdur Rehman”.

He continued.

King Khan further said that his father Meer Taj Mohammed Khan had named him Shah Rukh Khan while his sister as Lala Rukh.

The actor also described the meaning of Shah Rukh, saying it means ‘prince-like face’.

On the work front, Shah Rukh Khan has resumed the shooting of the film Pathan, also starring Deepika Padukone.
