Shah Rukh Khan's wife Gauri defied the Shiv Sena threat and stepped out to see Bollywood superstar's film 'My Name Is Khan' at a local theatre on the opening day of its release.
39-year-old Gauri, who broke her silence in the tense Shah Rukh-Shiv Sena stand-off, said her husband is "very happy" with the initial response to the film after remaining "sad" yesterday following the controversy over the release of the eagerly awaited picture.
A co-producer of the film herself, Gauri urged cinegoers to catch up with the movie saying it is a "beautiful" picture.
"He (Shah Rukh) was very very sad yesterday but today he is very happy that everybody in Mumbai and all over India has come to watch his film. Karan (Johar) is with him by his side, supporting him. We are very happy," Gauri said. Karan Johar is the director of the film.
"It is a beautiful film and everybody should watch it. At times like these, peace is the most important thing," she added.
