In their initial days in Mumbai, the wife of the man known as King Khan used to hope that her husband’s films would flop so that they could return to Delhi. Shah Rukh and Gauri Khan had almost nothing then — they slept on the floor on a gadda.
Appearing tonight on The First Ladies with Abu Sandeep, airing at 10 pm on NDTV Good Times, the couple reveals that they have very different traits. “He’s unstoppable. I’m unmovable. I’m lazy as hell and he’s absolutely super energetic,” laughs Gauri.
Her faith in him is total. “For me, whatever he touched would be gold,” says Gauri, and Shah Rukh makes no bones of the fact that he worships success.
“I don’t miss having chaat in Gol Market. I’ve never wanted to eat pao bhaji at Chowpatty [Mumbai] either,” he says. “I’m very happy being a star. I love what comes with it. I also appreciate the hard work that I have to do for it. I don’t want to wear dark glasses to hide from the world that I’m a superstar… And we are very thankful and grateful for the fact that we are a big star family.”
