When it comes to love, all we can think of is the ‘King of Romance’, Shah Rukh Khan! For every 90s girl, Shah Rukh is the ‘man’, who is reigning over everyone’s heart as Raj and Rahul, and has been making us believe in forever love, happy endings and picture-perfect romances. Do you know Shah Rukh too had his fair share of drama in marrying the love of his life, Gauri Chibber? The eternal love story of Shah Rukh and Gauri had begun the way many great stories do i.e., love at first sight. But the problems between them had arisen as Gauri hailed from a family of Hindu Brahmins and Shahrukh was the pathani Muslim guy.

Once Gauri Chibber had said ‘yes’ to Shah Rukh Khan’s proposal, the next step was to convince her parents, who were against the inter-religion union. But eventually, they had given a nod to their relationship and Shah Rukh being a sweetheart that he is, had completely understood their apprehensions. Shah Rukh had said in an interview, “I don’t blame them. They may have thought that any day they would have got a better deal for Gauri. Let’s put it this way. If my daughter brought in somebody like me, I would hit the ceiling”.
Shah Rukh Khan shares a warm camaraderie with his wife, Gauri Khan’s mother, Savita Chibber and his latest tweet is a proof of it. On September 8, 2019, Savita ji turned a year older and to make the occasion extra special, Shah Rukh and Gauri took to their Twitter handles and posted lovely wishes for her. Gauri shared a picture of Shah Rukh posing with his mother-in-law and the little one, AbRam Khan and wrote, "Happy birthday, Mom." Shah Rukh reposted Gauri’s tweet, and wrote, "May you always be as funny and full of life as you are." Shah Rukh, his mother-in-law and AbRam’s picture will surely bring a smile on your face.
They say that behind every successful man, there's a woman who stands in support of him through thick and thin. This stands true, both ways around for the ‘Badshah’ of B-town, Shah Rukh Khan and his ‘Begum’, Gauri who have been each other’s pillars of strength and source of happiness. When Shah Rukh was yet to make his name in the industry, it was the understanding of his newly-wedded wife that gave him the strength to fight the odds. And when Gauri wanted to make her name in the interior designing industry, it was her hubby, Shah Rukh’s support that helped her gain what she has achieved professionally.

In 2018, Gauri Khan was bestowed with Excellence in Design award at the Hello Hall Of Fame Awards and it was none other than her doting husband, Shah Rukh Khan, who was beaming with happiness and pride as his ladylove had gone up to the stage to receive the award. In her acceptance speech, Gauri had remarked, “For the last thirty years, I have attended so many award functions with my husband and this is the first time that I have received an award and he is sitting right here, this one is for you."
In an interview with Vogue, Gauri Khan had spoken about Shah Rukh Khan being the best husband she could ever ask for and how she prefers keeping her love for him inside the doors of Mannat. She had stated, “My life is with Shah Rukh and the kids. He is the best husband and father I could ever ask for. I always say that I am so fortunate to be with Shah Rukh Khan, the man. I don’t come from a space where I gush and praise—the world is doing enough of that. I like to keep my love for him private and inside the doors of Mannat.”
For the Vogue India’s Casa Vogue edition, Gauri Khan, who is more than just a star wife now and is a high-end interior designer, had given a never-seen-before peek inside her home, Mannat. But it was Shah Rukh’s lovely note about his beautiful home that had won our hearts. Revealing what ‘beautiful homes’ are made of, Shah Rukh had posted a picture of Gauri and had written, “Beautiful homes are made by beautiful home makers. Bas!” Couldn’t agree more, right?
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 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."
