From childhood sweethearts to India’s power couple: Story of Gauri and Shah Rukh Khan


Known for having an inspiring chemistry and being one of the most stable couples of Bollywood, Shahrukh Khan and Gauri Khan hold a love story that is worth your while. The suave Bollywood actor, Shahrukh Khan is known for his killing looks and marvellous acting, and is seen to be a dedicated man who is in love with his wife, Gauri Khan since he was 18.

Gauri and Shah Rukh Khan got married on 25th October 1991

The actor, who is famous for his on screen romance, first laid eyes on Gauri in a party when he was just 18 years old. Gauri Chibber (now Khan) refused Shahrukh by saying that she was waiting for her boyfriend. In reality, Gauri did not have any boyfriend and was just waiting for her brother who had accompanied her at the party. On learning the truth, Shahrukh Khan went to Gauri and said, "Mujhe bhi apna bhai samjho." This sprouted the connection between Gauri and Shahrukh. How sweet!

Love emerged and as the two started dating, Shahrukh Khan turned out to be extremely possessive by nature; he refused his girlfriend to keep open hair, let alone talk to any other guy. Gauri, who thought that she needed break from the relationship, went to Mumbai with her friends without informing Shahrukh about it. As Gauri left, Shahrukh realised his love for her and went down to Mumbai to find her. Shahrukh and his friends made numerous efforts to find her but failed. But as it is said, 'agar Kisi cheez ko dil se chaho, to puri kainaat usse tumse milane ki koshish mein lag jaati hai' and so Shahrukh finally found her by the beach. When their eyes met, both of them broke down crying as they realised the love that they have for each other.

Deeply in love, the couple failed to see the biggest hindrance in their relationship- they both were from different religious background. Gauri belonged to pure Hindu Brahmin family, whereas Shahrukh Khan was a Muslim. It is India and obviously the marriage proposal was denied by Gauri's family as Shahrukh was a Muslim and also was unsettled in his career.

After keeping their relationship a secret for five years, to changing his (Shahrukh) name to impress Gauri's parents, the couple went through a lot. One fine day, after so many attempts, Shahrukh was able to impress Gauri's parents and the couple got married in 1991.

Even after 25 years of marriage, Shahrukh and Gauri are proud parents of three children- Aryan, Suhana and AbRam. The couple seem to have an undying love and commitment towards each other. Shahrukh Khan has always seen his wife as an independent and supportive woman. It is true that such couples never failed to keep the fire of true love within us intact.
