Perhaps because of his on screen persona, his predilections for branded clothes, men's jewellery and accessories, Khan is perceived as an arbiter of style and general manliness— perhaps, his alter ego? In reality, he is more likely to be playing cricket with his children in his apartment terrace or discussing life's philosophies over a game of UNO or Scrabble.
“I am all about the disciplined life-- waking up in the morning, going to the gym at least 4 days a week, and following a routine – that's me; no matter how boring it may sound,” said Khan, on the secrets of his evergreen persona.
One would imagine that a person as busy as Khan would only want to relax and rest when not working. But it is quite the contrary.
“In my free time, I still play cricket with friends representing social clubs, both at home and overseas. And it's not always cricket that keeps me active; I am also an avid fan of snooker and golf.”
We always see celebrities helping out at home, be it with hilarious photos or tweets, so it's only logical that we'd be just as curious regarding Athar's role in household chores.
With a fair amount of guilt, he admitted to not being very useful around the house.
“I can make nice cups of tea though. Initially taught by my wife, Faria, I can brew with a mixture of cinnamon, cardamom, black pepper and red chilli; I am sure that counts as a household chore of some sort!” smirks the sports legend.
As you can see, there really are two sides to Athar Ali Khan; maybe three; or even more!
There's the one that you regularly see on TV raving over cricket scores of our national team and there's the other— the more reserved, homely, family man who finds fast fashion, fast cars, and fast life unpredictable and volatile.
And still, there's the socialite, the public face, the risk taker, the critic who lives and dresses on his own terms.
We all have our own alter egos. Allow me to ask the question, do we know them all well enough?
