I am too old for Bollywood says Gauri Khan
The star-wife, who features in a TV commercial for the first time, as the brand ambassador of a furnishing brand with Shah Rukh, was speaking to the media here today. To a question if she would want to try out acting in a film after working in a television ad, Gauri said, “I am too old to be in films. If I was younger, may be I would have considered.”
Incidentally, she is the producer of SRK‘s movies like Om Shanti Om, Main Hoon Na, Billu and the upcoming Ra.one. When asked if she would have featured in the ad with any other actor, Gauri said she was in the project because of her husband. “It was a home concept and it would be awkward for me to feature in it with any other man,” she said.
Shah Rukh, who was present at the press conference was the doting, protective husband as Gauri faced a barrage of questions. On being asked how was the experience of facing the arch lights for the first time, Gauri said she had never worked so much in her life. “I am so tired that I have been sleeping for two days,” she said. The television commercial with Shah Rukh was shot on Sunday.
The superstar who has just returned home after a 70 day hectic schedule of Ra.one in London jokingly asked his wife if she wished to act in a movie. “Please tell me, I will produce it myself,” he said. Later on a serious note, SRK said that in their relationship as husband and wife, both have freedom of choice.
“The decision was entirely hers. That is what trust and love is all about. Gauri did not feature in this ad for money. She has interest in furnishing and the owners of the brand are family friends so she was comfortable. I am very protective about my family and would not let them work in an uncomfortable environment,” he said.
Speaking about his wife, SRK said Gauri was just like another ordinary homemaker. “I like that she senses when I am sad and supports me. Similarly, when I am happy, she celebrates secretly,” he said.
On being asked if Shah Rukh was a good father or a good husband, Gauri said, “I can’t answer this question because I cannot keep praising him all the time.” Shah Rukh said Gauri makes his home beautiful. “My work is separate from my personal life. I don’t carry my image and stardom home. We are a real family and my wife and kids are not overawed by my work. The way we lead our lives is the same how we used to do in Delhi,” he added.
He said the only irregular feature in their normal life was the fact that he is seen on the big and small screen. “But my children understand that this is my job. They are honest with me and discuss with me what is good or bad about my movies,” he said fondly.
Ajay Arora, MD of D’Decor, the furnishing brand, said Gauri and her family make the home beautiful in the true sense.
