In a segment of the Disney+ Hotstar offering, Gauri opens up on how having a superstar husband also comes with its baggage. The entrepreneur, who has a successful interior designing business and hit Hindi movie productions to her name, says, “When [working on] a new project, there are some people who consider me a designer. But there are also times when it does not work out that way because people do not want to get attached to the baggage of working with Shah Rukh Khan’s wife. It works against me 50 per cent of the time.”
Filmmaker Karan Johar in the recent episode of 'Koffee With Karan', which saw Bhavana Pandey, Maheep Kapoor, and Gauri Khan, said that he thinks actress Ananya Panday "dated two boys at the same time". During the rapid-fire round, Karan asked Gauri about her dating advice for daughter, Suhana Khan, who is all set to make her Bollywood debut with Zoya Akhtar's 'The Archies'. Karan questioned: "The one advice you gave Suhana about dating." Gauri replied, "Never date two boys at the same time. Never." He added: "Good advice." Looking at Bhavana, Karan then said: "I think Ananya has done that already." A shocked Bhavana said:, "Has she?" To which, Karan replied: "Ya. I think she was oscillating in between." Bhavana then said: "No, she was thinking of two so she broke up with one," leaving everyone laughing.
The Khans dominated the headlines in the latter half of the year owing to Shah Rukh and Gauri's elder son Aryan Khan getting arrested in a drug case. Though he was let go on bail after the investigating team failed to gather evidence against him, the family went through a rough time and had become the talk of the nation. Aryan spent nearly a month in jail before he received bail.
Gauri addressed the tough time they went through as a family. During the show, Karan asked, "It has been such a tough ride for him (Shah Rukh Khan) not just professionally but everything that the family has been through personally, and you all have emerged so strongly as a family. I know you as a mother and him as a father, we are members of the same family and I feel like I am your children’s godparent as well. It hasn’t been easy, and Gauri, you have emerged stronger than ever. What do you have to say about your own handling tough times when families go through something like this?”
"As a family, we have been through — nothing can be worse than what we have just been through, as a mother, as a parent. But today, where we all stand as a family, I can say that we are in a great space where we feel loved by everyone. All our friends, and so many people who we didn’t know, so many messages and so much love. We feel blessed. I am grateful to everyone who helped us through this,” Gauri replied.
Bhavana revealed that her guilty pleasure is wine, pizza and tiramisu while stalking her daughter Ananya Panday. She also gave dating advise to her daughters Ananya and Rysa and asked them to have fun but not get serious at this age.
