Shah Rukh and Gauri Khan's love story is no less than a Bollywood romantic film. The duo dated for six years and after a series of ups and downs, the couple tied the knot in 1991. Shah Rukh Khan was 26 when he got married to Gauri. The actor believes his wife is his lucky mascot because his Bollywood career catapulted post his marriage. The duo is parents to three wonderful children – Aryan Khan (born in 1997), Suhana Khan (born in 2000) and AbRam Khan (born in 2013).

When a fan on social media asked Shah Rukh Khan why he got married at an early age, the superstar gave a very heartwarming response, saying, "Bhai love aur luck kabhi bhi aajate hain (Love and luck follows you anytime). So both came early with Gauri (sic)."

Well, Shah Rukh Khan has time and again narrated the hardships he went through and how Gauri Khan's support helped him overcome those struggles. "The struggle was just in the first few years of marriage. Gauri Khan was new to the film industry, so was I. It's not that I married an outside girl into the film industry. Two years for us in Mumbai was like honeymoon full of bumps. There was an issue like, 'You will shoot 6 in the morning?'," recalled Shah Rukh Khan, in an interview with mid-day.

Shah Rukh Khan further added, "I remember the first night when we actually came to Mumbai after about five-seven days. Gauri spent that evening fully dressed, she wore chuda (bangle) and Indian dress, and came to Film City and was there till 6 where Hema Ji was directing my film."
In one of the interviews with mid-day, Gauri Khan spoke of the discussions she has with her husband. Praising SRK for his unconditional support, Gauri said, "I must say that he's been a great support. I discuss work with him off and on, and our conversations are always fruitful (smiles)."
Do you know how Gauri Khan and Shah Rukh Khan used to romance in their younger days, before their marriage? SRK had shared in an interview, saying, "Unlike today where we have mobile phones, during our times there were only landline telephones. So whenever I wanted to talk to Gauri, I used to speak in a girl's voice as her brother Vikrant (Chhibber) used to pick the phone."

"So I used to say, 'Hello, can I please speak to Gauri?' in a girl's voice and he used to think that I'm her female friend," he added. Isn't that super adorable?
