After 17 years, Gauri Khan, interior designer, and wife of superstar Shah Rukh Khan, graced the famous `kouch`. Gauri, who is one of the closest friends of host Karan Johar made an appearance on the latest episode of `Koffee With Karan` along with her close friends and reality show stars, Maheep Kapoor and Bhavana Pandey. 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.
On the latest episode of `Koffee With Karan`, 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.
