Shahrukh Khan and Gauri Khan are living the life of their dreams. But things were not the same, when Shahrukh Khan came to Mumbai with his wife just after the marriage.
During an interview with Rajeev Masand, Shahrukh Khan talked about his struggles, initial years of his marriage, his wife Gauri and much more.
We Were New To The Film Industry
"The struggle was just in the first few years of marriage. Gauri Khan was new to the film industry, so was I.''
Our Honeymoon Was Full Of Bumps
''It's not that I married an outside girl into the film industry. Two years for us in Mumbai was like honeymoon full of bumps. There was an issue like, "You will shoot 6 in the morning?"
The First Night When We Came To Mumbai
"I remember the first night when we actually came to Mumbai after about five-seven days.''
Gauri Spent That Evening Fully Dressed...
''She spent that evening fully dressed, she wore chuda and Indian dress, and came to Film City and was there till 6 where Hema Ji was directing my film."
I Said Sorry To Gauri
"One of the actors got late as it happens in the shoot and we wrapped by 8 instead of 6. There were no mobile phones, so I sent her a cab as I didn't own a car and said, 'Please come over and sit here because I am really sorry, this has taken a little bit.'"
She Spent Her Second Night In A Dingy Makeup Room
"She sat on her second night in Mumbai in Film City's makeup room. They were damp and dingy then, still, she sat there till in the morning and came back. I guess that kind of made her realise as angry as it may have got her, 'This is the life.'"
It Was Extremely New For Us
"We both were very new yaar, I was 25-26, she was 21. It was extremely new for her. So, those 2 years cooking omelettes for each other. It just passed off."
Life After Being Successful
"Post that I became such a success, though none of us materialistic, my success became part of the family. There's a wife, now there are three children, there's a sister and there's a stardom. So, we all live together now."
We Take Stradom As...
"We take stardom as we take each other's success and failures with all love and care. It is all acceptable now. In the family group of six, there's the seventh which is kind of bigger than the other six."
