Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan and Gauri Khan – one of the most adorable couples in the film industry. Over three decades, they have seen many problems but they stayed together. Shah Rukh Khan fell in love with Gauri Khan when he was 18. Both of them reportedly met in Delhi at a party. Both of them spoke for five minutes and he has got Gauri’s number. They dated for many years and finally in 1991, SRK married Gauri.
At one point of time, Gauri and Shah Rukh fought with each other and Gauri without informing SRK went to Mumbai from Delhi. One more interesting news, is that Gauri Khan didn’t want Shah Rukh Khan to act in movies and she even prayed for SRK’s movies to flop so that they could leave Mumbai. But, later she not only supported SRK but also started a production company. Both of them endorse several leading brands in commercials.
Shah Rukh Khan is one of the persons who gives much importance to his wife and never steps back to celebrate Gauri Khan’s milestone moments.
After six years of their wedding, the couple have been blessed with their elder son, Aryan and later Suhana was born in 2000. In 2013, the couple became parents to AbRam Khan through surrogacy.
Gauri Khan in an interview said that she respects SRK’s religion and it doesn’t mean that she should become a muslim. She quoted, “There is a balance, I respect Shah Rukh’s religion but that doesn’t mean that I would convert and become a Muslim. I don’t believe in that. I think everybody is an individual and follow their religion. But, obviously there should be no disrespect. Like Shah Rukh would not disrespect my religion as well.”
In another interview, SRK shares an anecdote from his and Gauri’s wedding day. SRK said, “I remember, when their whole family, old-fashioned people, I respect them all and respect their beliefs but at that time, in that old-fashioned reception, all of them were sitting there when I came in at 1:15, whispering “Hmmm.. He’s a Muslim boy. Hmm.. Will he change the girl’s name? Will she (Gauri) become a Muslim?”
Shah Rukh Khan deciding to play a prank at that very moment, had said, “So, I looked at the time and said, ‘Okay Gauri, put on your burkha and let’s read the namaaz now’. The whole family stared at us wondering if I had changed her religion already. So I told them, ‘From now on she will wear a burkha all the time, she won’t ever leave the house and her name will be changed to Ayesha’.”
SRK further stated, “The lesson in all of this was that one should respect religion but it should not come in the way of love.”
