Shahrukh Khan and Gauri Khan, the undisputed King and Queen of Bollywood, celebrate their 22nd wedding anniversary today. The couple got married in a traditional Hindu wedding ceremony in Delhi on the 25th October, 1991. Their love story is one of the most dramatic and seems too perfect to be true. There were some obstacles, difficulties and hardships, but they came through and now are one of the most envied couple in Bollywood.
Shahrukh said that he first saw Gauri when he was 19 years old and she was just 14 and it was love at first sight. SRK charmed her ladylove and soon they were a couple. But Gauri couldn't reveal her relationship with Shahrukh, who is a Muslim, to her father as he was a Hindu Brahmin and a strict vegetarian. They used to meet up but were always worried that her brother might see them. To impress her parent's King Khan went to a party at Gauri's place and introduced himself as a Hindu.
Even though they were seeing each other for five years but Shahrukh was tremendously possessive about her and used to get angry on her even if she let her hair down..literally. This made his ladylove very uncomfortable and she realised that she needed a break from him, so she left for Mumbai with some friends. After SRK came to know about this, he told his mother about it and she gave him ten thousand bucks to go and get his love back.
The badshah of bollywood knew that Gauri loved beaches so he went to every beach to search for her and finally found her on Aksa beach. When they saw each other, they embraced and started crying, and at that moment Gauri realised that how much Shahrukh meant to her. That was the defining moment in their relationship as they both knew that they wanted to spend the rest of their life together.
Today they are blessed with three children, Aryan, Suhana and the latest addition to their family, AbRam. Despite all the rumours of his affair with Priyanka Chopra, the couple are going strong and are the perfect example of love, fidelity and mutual trust.

SRK On Gauri
I love Gauri because she is so honest and she complements me. Gauri teaches me how to be diplomatic. She keeps telling me that I say too many things and that I should not. Because people don't know me well enough and then they completely misconstrue what I've said.
SRK Plays A Prank
After the couple got married, Shahrukh said to Gauri, let's go, it's Namaz time. All her relatives and friends were shocked, Shahrukh started laughing and told them he was just joking.
