Mumbai: Gauri Khan, wife of Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan, thinks that SRK is a great father and husband, and that being married to him does not have any downside.
Speaking to reporters at the launch of the book Gravittus Ratna, Gauri, who is an interior designer by profession, was asked how being the superstar’s wife impacted her career. “I think because of who he (Shah Rukh) is, there are a lot of positives. I only take the positives and I don’t take the negatives,” she was quoted by IANS as saying.
“Even if there are some negatives, I have to brush it aside and the reason is very simple… because he helped me while launching Gauri Khan Designs, so, he is very important to me. Jokes apart, he has done a lot for our family. He is a great father and husband. I have to say that there are only positives being his wife and I would not like to share anything negative,” she added.
When asked how she deals with the media frenzy, she said, “I feel that I am leading a very normal life, where I am just another working woman like anyone else. I pick and choose when I want to be in spotlight, which is only connected to my work and when I need to use the media. I feel media is important when you are showcasing your work as people need to know what you are doing. So, I enjoy that part as well.”
Noteworthy, Shah Rukh first met Gauri at a party when he was just 18 years old, and fell in love with her. After being in a relationship for a few years, the couple got married according to Hindu rituals in 1991.
