1. Love at first sight “Pehla Pehla Pyaar Hai”
In 1984, Shah Rukh Khan first time saw Gauri Chibber at a common friend’s party. He fell for her instantly. She was dancing with some other boy and Shah Rukh Khan was very shy boy that time. He gathered a lot of strength and courage and approached Gauri but you know what she did?
She just turned down his offer for dance and said “I already have a boyfriend”. Shah Rukh was totally shattered by her reply but the guy whom she hinted to be her boyfriend was actually her brother which SRK found out later on.
2. Realization of Love “Pyaar ka dard hai, meetha meetha, pyaara pyaara”
It wasn’t really an awesome fairytale love story. Gauri Khan fell for Shah Rukh’s wit, confidence and style. He completely won her over but one habit was a major turn off for her. Shah Rukh Khan was very possessive about her. He always wanted her to keep her hair tied, not talk to other boys and just be with him. Gauri was totally frustrated and that’s why to take a break from this relationship she went to Mumbai without informing SRK.
SRK when learned about her sudden trip, he couldn’t help but share this news with his mother. He told his mom that he loves this girl a lot and wishes to spend his life with her. To his surprise, his mother not only supported his love but also handed over some of her saving money amount of Rs 10,000 to help him go to Mumbai and hunt for Gauri.
He went to Mumbai with few of his friends and they madly searched for Gauri in the possible places but they failed. After a tiresome search, Shah Rukh Khan spotted her at a beach and when they both looked at each other, they broke down and hugged each other. That moment was the realization that they couldn’t live without each other.
3. When Family did not approve “Lambi Judaai”
It was not easy to convince a Hindu Brahmin pure vegetarian family to approve a Muslim boy who wants to be a hero. Those days being an actor wasn’t really much appreciated. However Shah Rukh Khan and Gauri both were in opinion to get married only when their parents approve otherwise not. This was their fight for love. They kept their relationship a secret for 5 years and Shah Rukh Khan did every possible thing to convince her parents.
