Shahrukh Khan has turned 49 years old today, on November 2nd, a true blood scorpion who has been ruling the Bollywood industry as the 'Badshah' ever since he made his debut 22 years ago.
The actor recently reached an all time success with his last release, Happy New Year also starring Deepika Padukone minting close to Rs 300 crores from it's worldwide collection. The movie released on Diwali, which is considered very lucky for him, the actor denied being superstitious about it, but we cannot deny the fact that all his movies that have released on Diwali in the last 20 years have been blockbuster hits.
The actor debuted with Deewana in the year 1992 but his iconic film, Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge which is still running in the theatres too had released on Diwali, 20 years ago, proving the connection of Diwali's auspiciousness to Shahrukh Khan.
Shahrukh got married a year before his film debut to his childhood sweetheart Gauri. The couple may today be having a good run with 23 years of marriage but they too have faced a lot of ups and downs in this long span of companionship.
Like Shahrukh's link up with Kajol which got serious but it didn't do as much damage as his alleged affair with Priyanka Chopra did. Till date there is no actual proof of their alleged extra-marital affair but a lot of secret sources did end up revealing a lot of intimate details about their so called affair.
Gauri, was a confident wife with a mind of her own who never interfered with all such link ups of her husband but it is said that this particular closeness with Priyanka ended up creating a lot of rifts.
There is a lot of unknown facts about this alleged affair that you people are not aware of, so here it is, all the information that was leaked by the secret sources...
How It Started
Shahrukh Khan allegedly started to give special treatment to Priyanka Chopra and started recommending her to producers to cast her in the film.
While Gauri apprently didn't take it seriously, PC started to make regular visits to Mannat and even started to attend their house parties.
Don 2 Schedule
According to a source, "Shah Rukh had kept a party for a selected few at Mannat after his return from Berlin from the Don 2 schedule. Priyanka was invited as well. She turned up late, and surprisingly spent most of the time chatting with Gauri. Every one including KJo was stumped with this new bonding."
Gauri was apparently warned of Priyanka's ways but she asked her friends to shut up since she started to bond with PC.
Within time, Shahrukh and Priyanka started hosting shows together, traveling for film festivals and even trying to get themselves brand endorsements as a pair. This unusual behavior of the two apparently started to add fuel to the fire and Gauri started to have mood swings.
This particular picture released at the time of these speculations and everybody found Priyanka's hand in Shahrukh's pant pocket a little weird. This added sparks to the already burning issue.
Things Got Weird
The situation worsened when Priyanka stopped getting invited to parties, but would later be invited on Shahrukh's request. Even Karan Johar, who was then at loggerheads with Priyanka, had to swallow his pride and invite Priyanka Chopra to his birthday bash.
An eye witness who attended the bash reveals, "Shah Rukh played the perfect host for Priyanka. The moment she walked in, he jumped over the couch, received her with a kiss on her cheek and went around introducing her to everyone in the room. All this happened in front of Gauri who was left standing in a corner clutching her glass of a non alcoholic drink. After returning home, the couple had a huge show down where the two gave each other ultimatums. Gauri was clear that she didn't want her husband working with Priyanka. Shah Rukh on the other hand brushed the warning off and continued to court Chopra."
Gauri's Change In The Matter
A source revealed, "Gauri feels like a new person. She has turned to reading, meditation, taken a spiritual path. Her insecurity about losing her husband is nowhere to be seen and those who have met her recently only talk about how she is glowing and radiating happiness."
It is not known if the affair was real, Shahrukh and Priyanka however denied the whole thing. Currently the couple, Shahrukh and Gauri are going strong by celebrating their 23 years of marriage.
