Gauri Khan and Shah Rukh Khan will celebrate their 26th wedding anniversary on October 25. In the year 1991, on this day, Shah Rukh and Gauri tied the knot according to Hindu marriage ceremony. Interesting fact about their marriage is they spend their first wedding night on the set of a film and reason behind that was The Dream Girl, Hema Malini.
On the day of Shahrukh-Gauri’s wedding, Hema Malini called him and said that he would come if he wants to shoot. Shah Rukh was happy to see that meeting Hema Malini would be a surprise for Gauri. Gauri was also excited. Shahrukh was working for the film ‘Dil Aashna Hai’ in the direction and production of Hema Malini at that time.
Shahrukh reached to the studio along with Gauri. But Hema Malini wasn’t present there. There were assistant directors who said that Hema Malini will be coming soon. While sitting in a room in a studio Shah Rukh kept waiting for Hema malini along with Gauri.
At around 11 in the night, Shah Rukh left Gauri in the make-up room and went off to shoot. Shooting went on till about two o’clock, but Hema Malini still did not reach the set. After getting tired and without hopes Shahrukh returned to the make-up room. Here he saw that Gauri, who was dressed in a heavy wedding sari and jewellery, slept on an iron chair. Shah Rukh felt very bad but he was helpless. It was his struggling period as an actor and rest is the history!
