Shah Rukh Khan Pranked His In-Laws On Wedding Day, Asked Gauri To Put On Burkha And Read The Namaaz

In the world of uncertain relationships, Shah Rukh Khan and Gauri Khan have been reinstating our faith in the institution of marriage for the past three decades. The couple, who has been acing their marriage, faced lots of ups and downs before getting married. Shah Rukh was just 18 when he met Gauri for the first time at a party. Bowled over by her beauty, Shah Rukh could not resist asking her for a dance, and the rest is history.

However, Gauri’s parents were at first totally against their relationship, since SRK belonged to a different religion, and was also merely a budding actor. Nevertheless, they never lost hope, and Shah Rukh was finally able to win them over. He even posed as a Hindu boy to impress Gauri’s parents. The duo got married on October 25, 1991, in a Hindu marriage ceremony.
