Just as much as we love getting sneak-peeks into the personal lives of our favourite celebrities, the lives of their wives and children excite us too. What are they doing on the personal and professional fronts, who are they spending time with, where are they vacationing, what are they wearing and whatnot, everything becomes a headline about the fabulous lives of the celebrities. It is their relationships and friendships that are cherished the most, not only by the celebs but their fans too as they look up to them for inspiration. A boy from Delhi, Shah Rukh Khan became an inspiration for everyone when he had fulfilled his dream of becoming the King of the city of dreams and ruling it. His wife, Gauri Khan and kids, Aryan Khan, Suhana Khan and AbRam Khan too, enjoy the stardom and are loved by fans.

Way before we lost our hearts to Shah Rukh Khan's wide-open arms, the King of Romance had already lost his heart to his Queen, Gauri Khan. Finally, on October 25, 1991, Shah Rukh and Gauri had tied the knot as per Hindu rituals. As per a TOI report, Shah Rukh and Gauri had three marriages. First, the lovebirds had registered their marriage, which was followed by nikaah on August 26, 1991, and finally, a Hindu wedding ceremony on October 25, 1991. Since then, Shah Rukh and Gauri have proved at every step of life that if behind every successful man, there is a woman; then behind every successful woman, there is a man too! Over the years, Gauri had created a niche for herself in the designing industry as she had ventured into the world of interior designing and is now a high-end designer par excellence.
With the release of Fabulous Lives of Bollywood Wives and Gauri Khan announcing that she will be gate-crashing the second season of the show, Shah Rukh Khan’s close friend, Viveck Vaswani shared a throwback picture of newly-wedded Mr and Mrs Khan. Hinting at Fabulous Lives of Bollywood Wives in the caption, Viveck posted a rare picture of Shah Rukh and Gauri posing with King Khan’s sister, Shehnaz Lalarukh Khan. In the picture, Gauri flaunted her newly-bridal look in chooda and jewellery accentuating her black t-shirt and denim. Viveck captioned his post as "Much before Bollywood, before terms like Bollywood wives were coined, the home was Dalamal Park and mom was mom! There were warmth and unconditional acceptance! Here is Mom with Shahrukh, Gauri, Lalarukh and moi! #roots #friendship #mom."
Over their 29 years of marriage, we have seen millions of pictures of Shah Rukh Khan and Gauri Khan, which have given us serious #CoupleGoals. Scrolling through social media a few days back, we had gotten hold of an unseen picture of Shah Rukh and Gauri from their post-wedding function. In the picture, Gauri had flaunted her newbie bride’s look in a red-coloured saree and her look was accentuated with mangalsutra and chooda. Shah Rukh had looked suave in a black tuxedo. While till now we had seen pictures of Shah Rukh and Gauri from their wedding, this one of the newly-weds was surely a feast for the eyes.

For the unversed, during the initial days of his career, Shah Rukh Khan had lived at actor-producer, Viveck Vaswani's home and since then, they are closest of friends. In a throwback interview with the ETimes, Viveck had revealed that he is very much in touch with Shah Rukh. He had stated, "We chat on the phone at 2 am. That's the time when we're both wide awake. He jokes and says, 'Give me your Sindhi acumen'. He has several responsibilities- his acting, his production house Red Chillies Entertainment, his VFX work, his KKR team and his charity. He's so busy, every single day. Plus life has changed a lot, these days. Like for one, I am also running up and down so much with regards to my work at the school of media where I am the dean.”
Walking down the nostalgic lane and recalling how Shah Rukh Khan didn’t want to act initially, Vivek Vaswani had said in an IndianExpress.com interview, “He didn’t want to act in movies initially. He stayed with me because he didn’t have a house then. When I asked him if you would like to act, SRK said, ‘No, I can’t think of anything worse. It’s only after his mother passed away that he decided to act in films. That’s when we decided to make ‘Raju Ban Gaya Gentleman’ so that he would have a platform. I took him to meet a whole bunch of other producers who were able to sort of give him work. I was playing a very safe game because I didn’t want Raju to be his first film. You become a celebrity when your film is sold. ‘King Uncle’ and ‘Dil Aashna Hai’ may not have been very big important roles but these are roles that got sold as opposed to all the other rival competitors like Rahul Roy, Armaan Kohli who were doing solo hero films but not getting their movies sold or release. SRK slowly understood the business of films and the result is there for all to see.” (Also Read: Gauri Khan Gives A Never-Seen-Before Peek Inside Mannat, Shah Rukh Reveals What Makes Home Beautiful)
