Actor Shah Rukh Khan had created a niche for himself in the industry without a ‘Khandaan’ to back him up. And in a career span of close to three decades, he has proved to be the rightful King Khan of the B-town. He had begun his journey as a theatre artist, and over the years, had created unrealistic expectations from romance with his oodles of charm, dimpled smile and wide-open arms.
Way before we had lost our hearts to his charm and wide-open arms, Shah Rukh Khan had found his queen to rule his heart forever. And now, it has been more than three decades since they had known each other, and their relationship is going strong with each passing day. She became more than just a star wife and had created a niche for herself in the designing industry. She had ventured into the world of interior designing and is now a high-end designer. Shah Rukh Khan and Gauri Khan have proved that if behind every successful man, there is a woman; then behind every successful woman, there is a man too!

While that’s all about King Khan, but let us tell you that his wife, Gauri Khan, isn’t far behind when it comes to owning expensive things. Gauri too is a proud owner of Bentley Continental GT that’s worth Rs. 2.25 crores. Gauri is proudly working hard for her interior designing company, Gauri Khan Designs, which is worth Rs. 150 crores.

Gauri Khan believes that there are only positives in being the wife of superstar, Shah Rukh Khan. At the launch of a book titled Gravittus Ratna, Gauri had interacted with the media and was asked about the positive and negative effects that she experiences in her professional career being Shah Rukh's wife. Gauri had replied:
"I think because of who he (Shah Rukh) is, there are a lot of positives. I only take the positives and I don't take the negatives. Even if there are some negatives, I have to brush it aside and the reason is very simple because he helped me while launching Gauri Khan Designs, so, he is very important to me. Jokes apart, he has done a lot for our family. He is a great father and husband. I have to say that there are only positives being his wife and I would not like to share anything negative."
When asked how she manages to distance herself from the media glare despite being King Khan's wife, Gauri Khan had retorted:
"I feel that I am leading a very normal life, where I am just another working woman like anyone else. I pick and choose when I want to be in the spotlight, which is only connected to my work and when I need to use the media. I feel media is important when you are showcasing your work as people need to know what you are doing. So, I enjoy that part as well."
The couple has had their shares of ups and downs but they had not let it affect their relationship. From the struggling years in the initial phase of their relationship to ruling over the world, the couple has come a really long way.
