It’s not what you may think. The Bollywood Badshah is a dedicated son-in-law. But his visits to R C Chhiba, wife Gauri Khan’s ailing father in Delhi, cause more distress than anything else.

Gauri herself is by her father’s bedside at the Escorts Heart Institute at New Friends Colony in the capital. Chhiba’s had angioplasty done, two stents were required, and he’s now out of the ICU. But Shah Rukh Khan is reluctant to visit his father-in-law. Says a source, “SRK doesn’t want a repeat of what happened when he visited Chhiba at the Max Healthcare at Saket in Delhi. Everything came to a standstill when people saw him. This disturbed not only the discipline, but also the health of other patients. And Shah Rukh doesn’t wish to disturb anyone.” But that doesn’t mean the actor won’t come to meet Chhiba at all. “He will come to the city when Chhiba is home,” adds the source.
