Shah Rukh Khan wants his kids to get inspired by para-athletes
On Wednesday, September 26, Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan gave a warm send-off to the Indian contingent for the Asian Para Games 2018. The event is being held in Jakarta.

While speaking at the ceremony the actor revealed that there are days when he draws inspiration from these para athletes. He shared little anecdotes from his life when he felt like giving up including one particular incident when he woke up demotivated and didn't feel like getting out of the bed. Just then he turned on the TV and saw an interview of para athlete Deepa Malik. He said that he was immediately back to his old self, full of inspiration.

Shah Rukh also said that he wants his kids to be motivated by these para athletes and become strong, courageous and keep the spirits high during adversities and challenging times. The actor was quoted by the Times of India as saying, "I hope my kids can learn from you the importance of sports and not because you win gold in it or because you get fame, but for personal well-being, it is important. I hope they can learn that the word impossible does not exist."

Pictures of the superstar posing with the para athletes were posted on Instagram by photographer Viral Bhayani.

The Asian Para Games will be held from October 8 to 13. The para athletes will participate in various events like swimming, badminton, chess, power lifting and athletics as reported by sources.

Shah Rukh Khan shared the dias with Paralympics medalists Deepa Malik, Mariyappan Thangavelu and Varun Singh Bhakti and Asian Para game medalist Amit Saraoha.

Shah Rukh also spoke about his childhood dream of becoming a sportsperson but said that an injury dented his chances to play.
