A baby in Shah Rukh Khan's house
The mystery around Shah Rukh Khan's rumoured surrogate baby has taken yet another turn.
According to reports in a certain section of the media — reports over which Shah Rukh has assiduously maintained a silence - the baby is due to be born in July. But according to information available with this newspaper there seems to be another baby in Shah Rukh's and Gauri's life these days.
This child, a male, was delivered by Gauri Khan's sister-in-law NamitaChibber. She was admitted to Breach Candy Hospital on June 4 under the care of Dr IndiraHinduja.
Dr Hinduja is a pioneering doctor in assisted reproductive health who had delivered India's first test-tube baby in 1986; she was approached by Shah Rukh Khan a few months ago to discuss the possibility of assisted delivery, sources say.
The baby delivered by Namita Chibber was born premature at seven months and has since been kept at the hospital's neo-natal intensive care unit. The baby is in the care of paediatrician Dr Cyrus Contractor, who is closely monitoring its health.
According to several family members of patients we spoke to, Gauri Khan has been routinely visiting the hospital and Shah Rukh was spotted there earlier on Tuesday when he went for a follow up visit for his shoulder injury; he also visited the NICU that day.
While the baby — unconfirmed reports suggest he is called Abram, a variant of Abraham which means father of multitudes (nations) — continues to remain in the NICU, sources say he might be kept there until he attains healthy weight, Namita Chibber was discharged on Friday. The discharge form carries not Chibber's or her husband's telephone number but Shah Rukh Khan's private number. Though of course that's not proof that the baby is SRK and Gauri's, it does suggest that there is a new child in their larger family.
Shah Rukh has been dodging all talk of a surrogate baby, neither denying nor confirming anything each time he has been specifically asked about an addition to his family. The star would instead prefer to focus attention on his upcoming film Chennai Express that releases this Eid amid great expectations.
