Now what do I say about this couple. What do you say about someone who you call ten times a day to talk about almost everything. Shah Rukh and Gauri are my family. Their kids are like my own and their house is my house, I can walk in and out any time. I've spent the longest time with them since I met them in 1993.
With Gauri, I feel I have a past life Karmic connection. Although the world sees me as someone very close to Shah Rukh, I look at him like an elder brother…like a father figure…while it's Gauri who is like a soulmate. We talk daily and I can talk about anything under the sun with her.
His power is obvious when you see him on the most influential global lists like, when you see him get a Knighthood. But I have seen and sensed his power every moment. When I visited France with him, I had tears in my eyes to see 20,000 people scream out his name. That's the kind of power this man commands and I sometimes feel we take his super stardom for granted.
He's beyond human. Gauri is one of the most gorgeous and stylish people I've ever known. You feel like standing up and applauding when she walks into a gathering. They are raising their kids beautifully.
Shah Rukh has a child like energy about him. In fact if you see him in a toy shop with kids, you secretly get a feeling that he’s looking for a toy for himself. I feel lucky to have spent rare moments with this couple. I feel their marriage is an iconic marriage. Their marriage has made me have faith in the institution of marriage.
