New Delhi: The latest episode of ‘Koffee With Karan Season 7’ saw the brand new trio in bed. Superstar Shah Rukh Khan’s wife Gauri Khan returned to bed after 17 years and was joined by close friends Maheeb Kapoor and Bhawana Pandey, who made their debut on the show. The three guests opened up about their personal lives and had some fun conversations about many things including airport looks and Bollywood parties.
During the episode, Gauri spoke about her son Aryan’s arrest and everything that followed. Without taking Aryan’s name, Karan said: “It’s been a very difficult time for (Shah Rukh Khan) not only professionally but personally with everything the family has been through lately. You all have come out so strong.”
“As a family, I know it’s not easy. I know you as a mother and him as a father, and we’re all part of the same family. I feel like your children’s godparents. Well, it’s not easy, but Gauri, I’ve seen you get stronger.
He added: “What do you have to say about your own way of dealing with difficult times when families go through something like this.”
Speaking about it, Khouri said: “Yes, as a family, we’ve been through… As a mother, as a parent, frankly, I don’t think anything could be worse than what we’ve been through.”
He added: “But today, I can say that we are in a great place where we stand as a family and feel loved by all.”
The superstar’s wife shared that she is thankful to everyone who stood by her during the difficult times.
“And our friends, and so many people we don’t know. So many messages and so much love and I feel so blessed. I’d say I’m grateful to everyone who helped us through this.”
Aryan was arrested by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCP) in October last year for allegedly smuggling drugs on a cruise ship. He was released on bail after spending 25 days in jail. He got clean chit from NCB this year.
Gauri also spoke about her career and said that being Shah Rukh Khan’s wife often worked against her rather than benefiting her. Gauri is a successful entrepreneur with a leading interior decoration business. She also recently made her debut as a TV host with her own reality show, Dream Homes.
“When considering a new project, there are some people who think of me as a designer. But there are times when it doesn’t work out because people don’t want to associate Shah Rukh Khan with his wife’s work baggage. It works against me 50% of the time,” he shared.
He also revealed Shah Rukh Khan’s habits which annoy him. “He always sees guests to their cars. Sometimes during parties I feel like he spends more time outside than hours. Then people start looking for him. It makes it feel like partying outside on the road rather than indoors!” said Gauri Khan.
During the rapid fire round, Gauri Khan referred to Aryan Khan as her ‘fashion police’. “I am not allowed to wear a full-sleeved shirt. I am not allowed to wear many clothes,” Gowri said.
One of the dating tips he had for his daughter Suhana was never to date two people at the same time.
Apart from this, Maheeb also opened up about the tough times he and his family faced as Sanjay Kapoor had many ups and downs in his life. “There were times when Sanjay sat at home without work for years. Money was tight. My kids have grown up watching it with all the glamor and glitz,” she said on the show.
Being part of one of the biggest families in Bollywood didn’t make life easy either, “People around me sometimes made me feel like we were the failed section of the Kapoor family,” he added.
