New Delhi - Indian film superstar Shah Rukh Khan is denying he knew the gender of his son before the boy's premature birth.

Prenatal gender testing is illegal in India to prevent sex-selective abortions.

Media reports cite Khan saying on Tuesday that he didn't comment on the rumours earlier because of "emotional strife" over the health of the baby.

Khan and his wife also have a son and a daughter, who are in their teens.
