Talking about Karan at the event, SRK said, 'Karan's an extremely beautiful person. Why 'An Unsuitable Boy'? His biography could have been 'The Good Boy' and his parents would vouch for that.'
The 51-year-old also suggested the book could have been called 'The Intelligent Boy', as Karan's has the gift of knowing people inside out.
'When I am saying intelligent, I meant the ability to understand human emotions, people and their situation. I think that is a gift he has from God. He is an extremely gifted sensitive person. And I must mention that he is a brave boy, he is the most special human being I have come across,' he added.
'It is very tough to keep up with me so I can say he is one of the best conversationalists. His book could even have been 'A Sensitive Boy',' said the Badshaah of Bollywood.
'It could have been called 'The Brave Boy',' Shah Rukh further added. 'He will remain the most beautiful boy I have ever seen in my life. After 25 years of work, and at 51 years of age, I feel I have truly arrived because there is a full chapter dedicated to me in his book.'
