“His name is based on a variation of Prophet Ibrahim. And I liked the connotation that it’s kind of a secular name. We are a Hindu-Muslim family so to say, and I want my children to grow up without any difference of opinion in the name. It’s nice this way and has more universal appeal.. It sounds very nice with the name of Hindu god Ram in it.”
Shah Rukh Khan and his wife Gauri Khan welcomed their son AbRam via surrogacy in 2013. At that time, he had revealed the meaning of his son’s unique name and why it resonated with the family.
AbRam is spelled with a capital R in it. Once a fan had asked Shah Rukh Khan the reason behind it, and his witty reply had won over the internet.
“I know its a stupid question but why ‘r’ is capital in abRam,” a fan asked during #AskSRK session on Twitter.

“Apparently, he had sown his wild oats with a girl while driving her car in Romania. And yeah, there was a fake video to go with it. 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 license'”.
