He may have often dodged the marriage question, but Salman Khan certainly doesn’t shy away from spending time with children. On his nephews and niece especially, he is known to dote, considerably.

Arhaan (Arbaaz Khan and Malaika Arora’s son), Yohan and Nirvaan (Sohail and Seema Khan’s boys), Alizeh and Ayaan (Alvira and Atul Agnihotri’s children) and Ahil (Arpita and Ayush Sharma’s newborn) have all been at the receiving end of their Salman mamu’s laad-pyaar over the years. Ahil of course is the newest entrant to the Khan clan, but that only means he gets more of his uncle’s attention than anyone else.

For a Being Human campaign a little while ago, Salman had a photo shoot with nephews Arhaan, Ayaan, Nirvaan, Yohan and niece Alizeh

While Salman had tweeted out a photo of Arpita and Ahil in the hospital right after the latter was born, recently, he also snapped a pic of his mom (Salma Khan) cradling little Ahil in her lap, and captioned it “Nanima with nanha Ahil”. He’s also nicknamed the tiny tot “Super Sharma”.

And there’s more proof that Salman is a pretty strong contender for the “Uncle of the Year” prize — like this photo where he is seen hanging out with Arhaan and Nirvaan, that was posted to Instagram by sister-in-law Malaika Arora Khan recently. It seems to be a candid moment from a shoot for the Being Human campaign.

Salman has roped in his nephews and niece for previous Being Human campaigns as well. And the result has always been — adorable. Here’s hoping we’ll be seeing plenty more photos of Salman doting on the youngest generation of Khans!
