Shah Rukh shared that when Anant was only six years old, he once went out for a walk with his grandfather, Dhirubhai Ambani, and his mom, Nita Ambani, on the Marine drive. However, Anant's grandfather brought him a bunch of balloons for Rs. 15. SRK added that when Anant went back home, he felt that the balloons were a bit pricey.
