Sometimes in filmi duniya a ‘new baby’ refers to a film – ready to release or about to start with a muhurat shot. Other times, it could be about an actual baby, a child, an infant, expected soon in a film family. This time, we heard that a happily hitched twosome is planning to have a third child, this time via a surrogate mum. According to newspaper reports, the couple already has two kids, the elder of which is now being educated abroad. Hubby and wifey married in the ’90s and now our man is a big time hero who can afford the time to sit back and enjoy a new baby in his life. And since time waits for no woman to think about it too long – neither doe’s cellulite – out to-be parents have decided to take the surrogacy route instead of going about it the usual natural way, we are told. And the infant is expected to arrive in early July, it is said.
So we read this, put two and two together and came up with a rather unsatisfying four. Why are we not happy? Because there was a serious lack of substance to it. Yes, we can go on for reams about surrogate motherhood or parenthood and who has opted for it, but nothing gives us really solid clues about who this couple could be. We could leap to a lovely happy conclusion and say it is Shahrukh Khan and Gauri, who got married in 1991 and have two children – Suhana, who is still at home with Mummy and Daddy, and Aryan, who is in prep school near London. SRK is now a top star, loves kids and is said to adore his wife, rumours of his wandering interest in various heroines, the latest being Priyanka Chopra, notwithstanding. The King Khan now can sit back and enjoy fatherhood for a while, since he is, after all, the Badshaah of Bollywood, no?
While we would send out HUGE congratulations to SRK and Gauri if we could be sure this story was true, for now we say a nice big hurray to whoever the new parents could be. And if it is a film that the story talks of and not a real baby.
