There's one name, one face, one smile and one voice that rule billion hearts across the globe. Yes! We are talking about the King of Bollywood, the ordinary man from the streets of Delhi who had become a global star, the one and only Shah Rukh Khan. The actor has won numerous awards and titles for his brilliant acting in different movies over the years and is often called the greatest lover the nation has ever seen.
Besides being a tremendously talented actor, Shah Rukh Khan is a gentleman in his personal life too. The actor never shies away from crediting his gorgeous wife, Gauri Khan, for all the success he has ever achieved in his life. Now, in an old throwback interview, he had recalled the time when he and Gauri didn't have enough money to even afford some flowers for each other.
In a candid interview with Bonobology in 2018, Shah Rukh Khan had opened up about his marital life with his designer-wife, Gauri Khan. The doting husband had shared many exciting and inspiring details about his love-filled journey with Gauri, from lovers to life partners. When Shah Rukh was asked whether he had gifted something special to his wife, Gauri. Answering this, the handsome actor had recalled the time when neither he nor Gauri could afford even flowers for one another. However, the actor had also revealed the best gifts he had ever given to his gorgeous wife. He had stated:
"Earlier, neither me nor Gauri could afford good gifts for each other. There was a time when we couldn't even afford flowers for each other. We did not have money to go to hotels and afford a chola bhatura (when he was struggling). Even when we were students, we just exchanged cards on birthdays that we made for each other and I thought the cards that I had made (for Gauri) were very creative. Those were the best gifts I ever gave anybody."
In the same interview, Shah Rukh Khan was also asked to share his opinion about the gains and the losses he had received for being in a relationship with Gauri Khan. While he had surfaced numerous gains that he enjoys for being Gauri's life partner, the Bollywood superstar had given a lovely answer addressing the losses. He had explained:
"The biggest gain from Gauri is that I have got a superwoman in my life. Had she not taken charge of my house, I couldn't have concentrated on my professional life. I am here doing all my stunts in front of the camera because I know Gauri is there to take care of the rest. Gauri is my professional partner as well because she has produced my films. This is the biggest gain from companionship: you know that somebody is there no matter what. The feeling of security in a family is the most important feeling in the world. Losses? Nah, I don't see anything that can be defined as a loss. If you are married to the girl you love, what can be the loss? It's too heavy a term to use."
Going further in the interview, Shah Rukh Khan had admitted that he often feels lonely in his life because of the success he had achieved in his illustrious career. When he was asked whether he sought any help during the stressful times from his family, Shah Rukh had explained that he had touched a certain point where it's hard for people to connect with the sort of loneliness he is experiencing. He had also added that he never brings his professional setbacks back to his home. The actor had said:
"When I am disturbed at a personal level, they are always there but my work is out of their purview of discussion. I don't take my work or worries to my dining table. I can't involve the lives of my children in a super star's life. The life of a super star can be very lonely. I try and keep it normal at home. I have kept them away from films and I have made a rule in my family that nobody discusses my work."
Shah Rukh Khan had also addressed the impact his wife, Gauri Khan, had on his life and had admitted that she had been leading his life right from the very beginning of their relationship. The doting husband had also praised Gauri and called her a 'superwoman'. He had stated:
"In some ways, my life has been led by women. Gauri has been behind me like a force in everything I do. To be able to handle a household and keep it detached from my profession is the job of a superwoman, and Gauri does it effortlessly. I still don't know how she does it."
At the end of the interview, Shah Rukh Khan had admitted that his wife, Gauri Khan is his first and last girlfriend. The actor had also stated that he was always an admirer of long-lasting relationships. The actor had retorted:
"Gauri has been my first and last girlfriend. I have never been with any other woman in my life. I believe in having long lasting relationships. Relationships cannot be just turned on and off. I belong to the middle class school of thought and still love Gauri like the way I loved her during my twenties and am still as much happy to be with her as I was when I hadn't married her."
For the unversed, Shah Rukh Khan and his wife, Gauri Khan, are parents to three adorable kids, Suhana Khan, Aryan Khan, and AbRam Khan.
Besides being a tremendously talented actor, Shah Rukh Khan is also a gentleman in his personal life. There's a reason why millions of people around the world admire Shah Rukh Khan. It's not his acting that makes him such a great person, but it's his heart and the way heRead More
