“In 1984 a young boy of 19 from Delhi met a lovely girl of 14 and instantly fell in love. The path of their romance were strewn with impediments, owing to the differences in their religion. However they overcame all these obstacles and united as one.”
This is not a part of any Hindi romantic movie but the real love story of one of India’s finest actors and the undisputed superstar of Indian cinema, the King of Bollywood- Mr Shahrukh Khan. The King Khan has recently celebrated hi 22nd wedding anniversary with wife Gauri, son Aryan, daughter Suhanna and the new family member, AbRam.
Shahrukh Khan and Gauri’s love stoy is no less dramatic than any Bollywood romantic flick. Their courtship started way back in 1984 when Shah Rukh was yet to enter the film industry and Gauri was still a school girl. It was love at first sight for both of them, but Gauri could not reveal her relationship owing to their religious differences. They had to continue their courtship in secrecy for some time, before Shah Rukh did win over her family and finally they got married in a traditional Hindu wedding ceremony on the 25th of October,1991.
For 22 years Shah Rukh khan and Gauri has carried themselves in the most dignified manner. Although they had to deal with a lot of controversies, including Shah Rukh’s supposed affair with Priyanka Chopra and even rumours of Shah Rukh being a gay, but nothing has ever come close of causing a rift between their relationships.
In amongst all the glitz, glamour, glitterati and somewhat rakish film industry, it is perhaps their love , affection and most importantly their mutual trust that has resulted the relationship between this King and Queen of Bollywood to go strong for 22 long years and we wish them many more years of togetherness.
