Shah Rukh Khan is Bollywood's heartthrob and every girl's dream man. His attractive persona on screen and charming personality off it has had fans drooling since decades. However, this suave actor is a committed man. As destiny would have it, India's superstar Shah Rukh Khan fell madly in love with Gauri Chibber, now Khan. Their relationship has withstood all kinds of rumours and controversies and the two are always together.
The big proposal came in a very swift manner, which the actor shared on The Anupam Kher Show - Kucch Bhi Ho Sakta Hai. After dating Gauri for a long time, Shah Rukh Khan finally mustered the strength to ask the big question and he did it in a very quirky manner. "I had a Fiat back then and I was dropping her home. That is when I asked her if she will marry me and went off, I didn't even wait for her to say 'yes' or 'no.' She must have said a 'yes' only, because then we were married off," said the actor on the TV show. It is definitely not the kind of proposal one can expect from the King of Romance. Gauri Khan's brother had also given SRK some sound advice, sharing the same SRK said, "Don't do anything hanky panky with my sister."
Gauri Khan has been a part of Shah Rukh Khan's life even before the actor became the star that he is now. She has stood by him at all times. Shah Rukh Khan had shared on Anupam Kher's show, "When I went to become an actor, maybe she didn't like it, because actors have such a reputation and also ours was an inter-religion marriage." However, the much-in-love couple got married on October 25, 1991. "I started shooting in June and in October we got married. Our honeymoon was on the sets of Dil Aashna Hai," reminisced SRK on Anupam Kher's show.
Shah Rukh Khan is one of the most successful actors of Bollywood. However, it seems like SRK's biggest critic is at home, his wife Gauri Khan. On Karan Johar's chat show, Koffee with Karan, Gauri spoke about criticising SRK. She said, "If he is bad in a film I don't need to praise him. He needs to accept that, I am an audience. He needs to deal with it. Shakti was his worst performance in a long time. I respect him for his profession, he is King Khan and gets great write ups, but he doesn't hear from other people, and I should tell him because no one else tells him."
Shah Rukh Khan and Gauri Khan are parents to three wonderful kids. But shockingly, SRK thought that Gauri would not be a good mother. Shah Rukh Khan confessed this on Karan Johar's chat show where he said, "Surprisingly I never thought that Gauri would be a good mother. She doesn't come across as a children-friendly lady. She is not a typical one; I was pleasantly surprised that she is an absolutely wonderful mother." Their oldest son Aryan is studying abroad, and then they have a daughter named Suhana. Last year the couple became parents to a son through surrogacy and named him AbRam.
Shah Rukh Khan may be ruling hearts with his romantic side. However the actor is way too shy at home. SRK and Gauri have been married for more than two decades and have passed the stage of the usual romance. SRK said on Koffee with Karan, "We have known each other for so long, we have surpassed a stage. One of the stages that we have passed is that we don't need to sit under a moonlit night. I think just passing each other across from the bedroom to the living room is romantic. Love is in the air. We have wonderful children who are a proof that we have a wild, loud, screaming romance going on in the house all day long."
