"Thirty years ago this day my dad died. Never said wot I should be. I want to be a gentle & funny father more than any other title. Miss him lots," the 44-year-old actor posted on his microblogging site Twitter Sunday.
Shah Rukh's father had died of cancer. "On days when issues surround me that need strength...I wish he was here to beat up all. My dad was the strongest...& the handsomest.
I don't remember my dad's skin...his touch or his voice anymore. Only his eyes...& his smile...full of promise that he will always be there," he wrote.
The superstar, who is married to Gauri and has two children - son Aryan and daughter Suhana, also urged fans to give a hug to their fathers at least once a week.
"One last thing before I miss my dad even more. All of you go & give a hug to your dads once a week, without reason...fathers like that. I know."
