    In an an exclusive interview with HT Brunch, the 'Ae Dil Hai Mushkil' director opened up for the first time abbout his friendship with Gauri Khan and more. Read on...


    Shahrukh Khan Introduced Me To Gauri

    We first met in 1994 when we were shooting Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge in Switzerland. Gauri was there with a friend, and Shah Rukh (Khan) introduced us. I thought both she and her friend were very aloof.

    Gauri Sniggered At The Idea That I Could Speak French

    Just because I could speak French, Shah Rukh appointed me as the person to take them around for a day in Rougemont in the French part of Switzerland. Gauri obviously didn't believe that somebody from a Hindi film crew was cool enough to speak French, and kind of sniggered at the idea.

    We Became Really Close On That Trip

    Things got a bit better once we bought the train tickets and I was able to manoeuvre them through that day. We landed up getting along really well and by the end, I was quite a favourite of hers. In fact, we grew to becoming really close on that trip.

    How Karan Johar Became Her First Friend From The Film Industry

    KJo further added, "When we came back to Mumbai, she followed up with me and I became her first friend from the industry, an industry that she had otherwise stayed away from because she was wary of the people in it."

    Gauri Thought Film Industry People Weren't Her Cup Of Tea

    The Delhi girl who used to dance with Shiamak Davar had thought that film industry people were not her cup of coffee. I kind of broke that mindset for her.

    Gauri's Evolution From An Aloof Girl To Actively Belonging To Her Husband's World

    I think that the foundation of my friendship with Gauri lies in the fact that I made her love the people in the movies, people who are actually really great. She grew to realise that, and today, all her strong equations are from within the film fraternity. I've seen her evolve from being an apparently aloof girl to now actively belonging to her husband's world. I've seen her rooting for his films and being stressed and jittery pre-release just like any movie industry person's family member would be. And in the last decade, she's also come into her own in a whole new way."
