“The greatest mum, the hottest wife, the best friend – there just isn’t anything that Gauri Khan is not,” says her best friend Karan Johar.
“SRK-Gauri are karmically connected – they are soulmates. I think they’re very lucky to have met one another at such a young age and have had such a beautiful marriage.”At home...“She is the same person at home as she is outside – that’s why she is so special. There’s nothing different – and this is what makes her unique.”As a mum...“She is a totally hands-on mum. She is obsessed with her kids and spends 20 hours of the day with them. They fight like cats and dogs, which is cute. Shah Rukh and Gauri are not strict parents, they are lenient, but are grounded and know where to draw the line.”The first time you met her...“It was with SRK on the sets of Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge and we connected immediately. We started chatting and in three days we became friends. I knew she was going to be a part of my life forever then.”As a chef...“Gauri can’t cook but tries her hand at desserts. My favourite is this one dessert she makes with ice cream, biscuits and chocolate sauce. The strange concoction tastes great.”As a food lover...“She loves Indian food, but doesn’t like restaurants at all. She prefers being at home.“As a wife...“Gauri is an honest person. What you see, is what you get. She gives SRK his space, and fills that space beautifully. She is his reality check at almost every juncture and keeps everything on level.”As a friend...“She is a very live-and-let-live friend and will always be there for you in whatever circumstances. She is my best friend and will always be.”As the woman SRK fell in love with...“If anyone knew Gauri Khan the way SRK did then, they would have fallen in love with her too. She is one of the nicest human beings I have ever met – very solid. She is clean, honest, and always positive about everything. Her strength of character makes her the way she is – she is a strong woman. Everything that you could look for in a woman or want, you can find in Gauri. She is a beautiful and loving wife.”
