Shah Rukh Khan and Gauri Khan are not just names, they are what everyone calls ‘true love’. Belonging to Delhi, Shah Rukh Khan and Gauri had met each other in a party in 1988, and the Cupid had struck them with love. Shah Rukh was so crazy about her that he followed her to Mumbai, even without knowing her whereabout. However, SRK had proved ‘Jahan cah, wahan raah’ right as he had found his love, Gauri, looking around for her on the sea shores of Mumbai, and rest as they say is history.

Shah Rukh Khan and Gauri Khan had tied the knot on October 25, 1991 and had become the ‘IT’ couple of the town. Shah Rukh is true blue ‘King of Romance’ in both, his personal and professional life. From romancing his actresses to being loyal to his wife, Shah Rukh has been raising the standards of love really high. The couple has had their shares of ups and downs but they did not let it affect their relationship.
We have grown up watching and learning romance from Shah Rukh Khan. His wide spread arms, his dimples and those intense eyes can make anyone go weak in the knees. In The Kapil Sharma Show, Kapil Sharma had asked SRK what would he do if his wife, Gauri walked on him while he is shooting for a romantic scene, and like always he had a witty reply to it. He had replied saying that he is not comfortable while doing romantic scenes when people are around and that is one of the reasons why he insists on shooting such scenes in outdoor locations. He feels he can never do such scene if he is not comfortable enough. Well, SRK totally knows how to nail every question thrown at it.
Having a gorgeous and intelligent wife like Gauri can make anybody possessive. SRK too had his phase when he was overtly possessive about her. In an old interview, where Shah Rukh and Gauri had graced the talk show, Rendezvous With Simi Garewal in the year 1997, the couple had talked about the initial days of their relationship. When Gauri was asked whether Shah Rukh has always been protective, she had replied that his protectiveness was more of possessiveness. She had stated, “It was possessiveness. It has turned to protectiveness. He was disgustingly possessive, he was sick. He wouldn’t let me wear a white shirt because he thought that it was transparent. It was a kink in the mind, I think.”
Shah Rukh had agreed that it was not right on his part to be so possessive about her and had stated that he was quite insecure about their relationship. He had further revealed that it was his lack of ownership on Gauri which had made him overprotective towards her. He had also agreed that in order to control her and prove his ownership on her, he had turned very cheap. When asked how Gauri had dealt with such a possessive lover, she had stated, “I kicked him and left him for very long. He had to learn because I said, ‘Okay, bye. Otherwise you will never see me again.’” (Don't Miss: Kartik Aryan Reveals What Kind Of Girl Does He Want To Date And We Are Not Surprised)
Shah Rukh Khan never fails to showcase his candid love for Gauri Khan publicly. At an award show which Vicky Kaushal was hosting, he had shown SRK a throwback picture of himself with Gauri Khan and had asked him about the picture. Shah Rukh Khan had revealed, “This is my favourite picture...When I got married, I was very poor while Gauri was middle-class, well-to-do. So like how usually everyone does, I had promised her that after we get married, 'I'll take you to Paris and show you the Eiffel Tower'. But obviously, it was all a lie because neither I had the money nor I had the air tickets but somehow I convinced her.” This is the picture which Vicky Kaushal had shown to Shah Rukh Khan:
Shah Rukh Khan had further revealed that he took Gauri Khan to Darjeeling for honeymoon but had tricked her into believing that they were going to Paris. The Zero actor had further added, “Finally, we were heading to Darjeeling to shoot a song for Raju Ban Gaya Gentleman. And I felt that considering even Gauri hasn't travelled abroad, she wouldn't know much, so main usko Paris bolke Darjeeling le gaya. Yeh humara honeymoon hai....20-30 days after our wedding.” (Recommended Read: Happy Birthday Sanjay Dutt: Unseen Photo From His Birthday With Parents Sunil Dutt And Nargis Dutt)
