The actor made the audience laugh with his signature sarcasm and humour.

Superstar Shah Rukh Khan's talk at the famed TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design) conference has been posted online. The King of Romance speaks on a range of topics, including some interesting bits about the controversy surrounding the birth of his youngest son AbRam.
The event took place last month at Vancouver in Canada, where the actor was invited to speak about his inspirational journey.
Shah Rukh made the audience laugh while narrating a sad tale of losing his parents while he was young. “When I was in my early twenties, I lost both my parents, which I must admit seems (to be) careless of me now,” he said.
He also disclosed a lesser-known or rather unknown incident right after his father passed away. He was carrying his father’s dead body in their car with his mother. “I started driving back from the hospital to the house. And in the middle of the quite climb my mother looked at me and said, ‘Son, when did you learn to drive?’ And I thought about it and realized and I said to my mom, ‘Just now, mom.’”
One moment from the talk has become the talking point. While expressing his gratitude to his fans for the love and warmth, he said, “India decided somehow, that I, the Muslim son of a broke freedom fighter who accidentally came to the business of selling dreams, should become its king of romance. The Badshah of Bollywood.” It is not known why he specifically mentioned his religion.
But what stunned the audience was Shah Rukh's willingness to speak about the controversy around the birth of AbRam. “Four years ago, my lovely wife Gauri and me decided to have a third child. It was claimed on the net that he was the love child of a first child (Aryan) who was fifteen years old. Apparently he had soared his wild oats with a girl while driving her car in Romania. And ya, there was a fake video to go with it.”
Giving the incident a humourous take, he said, “And we were so disturbed as a family. My son, who is 19 now, even now when you say hello to him, he just turns around and says, ‘But bro, I didn’t even have a European driving licence.’”
