As we sit down cribbing about our life and wondering how it could be better, we must wonder this instead, that how our parents used to handle everything when they were our age. Yes, we have heard them saying this millions of times 'jab hum tumhare age ke the toh yeh karte the, aisa hota tha...' but it is with time that we realise the true meaning of it. While we complain about one job we have, our parents had so much on their plate when they were our age. They were married, they had kids, they had to manage family and work and whatnot. It's amazing to see our parents reminisce and cherish those bittersweet memories, even today! (Also Read: Gauri Khan's Sneak Peek Into Sea-View Work Studio At Mannat Gives Us Some Serious WFH Envy!

Especially during the lockdown, when we have a lot of time in our hands, the favourite pastime is to dig throwback pictures from photo albums and reminisce those beautiful memories. When it comes to celebs, while they share some beautiful memories from their archive, some of their fan clubs dig deep down to share it on social media. Sometime back, Gauri Khan had reposted a picture from one of her fan clubs, which had Shah Rukh Khan and her mother, Savita Chibber in the frame. Sharing the priceless memory with her husband and her mother on her IG stories, Gauri wrote, "Old is gold" with a golden heart sticker atop it.
It was in 1991 when Shah Rukh Khan had married his crush, Gauri Khan, and while the former was 26 at that time, the latter was 21-year-old. Reposting a picture from her fan page, Gauri recalled the earlier days of her marriage and revealed she was already married at her son, Aryan Khan's age. In the picture, Gauri sported a Harley-Davidson cap, which didn't fit well on her head. Sharing her picture, Gauri wrote, “When I was Aryans age and married.. !!!! this cap is out of control.”
To make their ‘happily ever after’ even more fairytale-like and beautiful, Shah Rukh Khan and Gauri Khan are blessed with two dapper boys, Aryan Khan and AbRam Khan and gorgeous sunshine, Suhana Khan. When Shah Rukh had turned 54, Gauri had posted a family picture with Aryan, Suhana and AbRam ‘squeezing into one frame’. Gauri had captioned her ‘family in blue’ post with snow-capped mountains reflecting in the mirror in the backdrop as “Squeezing memories into one frame..."

Back then, Shah Rukh Khan had also interacted with the media and had recalled a conversation where his eldest son, Aryan Khan and teenage daughter, Suhana Khan had asked him to do one more big film. He had reminisced, “Aryan told me that me and Suhana have grown up watching Kuch Kuch Hota Hain and DDLJ. But AbRam needs you to do one big film jisse usko lage uska baap itna bada actor hai. So that is what I intend to do. To get a marriage of commercial cinema with great characters.”
It was just a few months back when Suhana Khan had made her Instagram account public and to mark Mother’s Day 2020, she had posted a wish for her interior designer mother, Gauri Khan. Revealing that she’s ‘kinda mad’ about one thing from her mother, Gauri, Suhana had written, "Happy Mother's Day Ma. Honestly, kinda mad that I don't look like you." Pat came a perfect motherly reply from Gauri as she had reposted the picture and had written, “I love you @suhanakhan2” with a heart emoji. In her Mother’s Day post, Gauri had posted a collage comprising of her picture with her mom, her elder son, Aryan Khan, daughter, Suhana and youngest one, AbRam Khan. Gauri had captioned it as “Maternal bonds .. happy Mother’s Day.” (Also Read: When Shah Rukh Khan Was Scared Of Losing Wife Gauri Khan Forever During The Birth Of Son, Aryan Khan)
