She has never really shared the limelight her husband has grabbed. In her own gentle way, she carved her own niche, staying aside her husband, supporting him. Her husband has the whole nation wrapped around his little finger while she has him eating out of the palm of her hand. She is a television and a film producer. She plays a Queen to her husband-- The King of Bollywood. She is a closet interior decorator and a super mom and is also a style icon for women across India.
Having started as a costume designer for Shahrukh's movies like Darr, Ajnabi and many more, she ventured as the key producer of Red Chillies Entertainment. She has been a very private person and came out very recently. Her status as a celebrity was first acknowledged by magazine Vogue, who featured her on their cover not as SRK's wife but as an emerging presence in Bollywood. Even though Gauri looks after her children mainly, this status of a celebrity in her own standing is significant.
There is something about her that made Shahrukh's heart swing. Married as early as 21, she shifted to Mumbai from Delhi, to be with the man of her dreams, without even knowing how things would work out. In fact she once said about Shahrukh, ‚Äúhe was always ambitious from his very childhood in his school in his college he has always been on top. Whether it was as a student; football, hockey, his theatre anything, for me whatever he would touch would be gold. I think I was smart to marry him. I think that‚Äôs my smartness that I chose the right guy. ‚ÄĚ
Her fashion is in the spur of the moment. She is not the one who'd sit in front of the mirror for hours to get ready.
Fashion favourites: Joseph-I love everything, especially their wrap dresses-and Dolce&Gabbana.
While she indulges her love for shoes, especially boots -- her wardrobe is stacked with patent YSL pumps, embellished Jimmy Choos and Manolo Blahniks-she stays far away from the over-hyped 'it' bags. Loves Bottega Veneta's classic oversized bags.
Casually chic: Comfort is the key factor in her style and, despite her petite frame, Gauri chooses cargos, tees and flip-flops for the day. She hates tight, revealing clothes. Earlier she used to love wearing really fitted clothes and not care about comfort but now she needs things that she can slip into. "What I wear really depends on my mood and I always keep in mind that I am the wife of a very successful man.", Gauri explains.
Gauri chooses cargos, tees and flip-flops for the day. She hates tight revealing outfits. She might show off her toned dancer's legs (she trained under Shiamak Davar) but chooses to cover up in relaxed tops.
You can often spot her strolling down London's Bond Street or experimenting with make-up on the ground floor of Selfridges. Despite her wealth, she loves to spend her time at Cheap Jack, an odds-and-ends store near her home in Bandra, looking for borders, buttons and trimmings.
Gauri's day revolves around her family and home. She calls herself like any other mother and wife, who wakes up in the morning, gets her kids ready for school, helps husband with his work and does things around the house.
