DID YOU KNOW? Shah Rukh Khan Had Changed His Name To Abhinav To Convince Gauri Khan’s Parents; Latter Said, ‘That Was Really Silly, Very Childish’
In a throwback interview Shah Rukh Khan and Gauri Khan had confessed they had temporarily changed the actor’s name to convince her parents that he was Hindu
Bollywood celebrity couple Shah Rukh Khan and Gauri Khan have set a standard for a successful marriage. They have often openly talked about the struggle they had to go through to get married to each other as Gauri was 21-years-old and he was 26-years-old at the time. Not only was age the factor, but also them being from two different religions and SRK starting his career as an actor. Back in 2008, the couple shared a hilarious yet childish anecdote from their younger days.
During an interaction with Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla for their show First Ladies, the interior designer and entrepreneur had spoken about how they had temporarily changed Shah Rukh’s name to Abhinav. Hailing from her Hindu Brahmin family, her parents were completely against her interfaith marriage with the actor. Recalling the difficult phase of their life, she recalled how they were so young to decide that they wanted to get married. Especially to the person who was “going to join films, and being from a different religion.” ALSO READ: LEAKED!

The couple couldn’t find a way to convince her parents to let them get married. Gauri went on to recall how they had temporarily changed the actor’s name so that they could convince her parents that he was a Hindu boy. Quoted by Bollywood Shaadis, she said, “We changed his name to Abhinav so they feel he is a Hindu boy, but that was really silly and very childish.” ALSO READ: 'Please Kholo': Shah Rukh Khan Teases Deepika Padukone At An Award Show; Priyanka Chopra’s Reaction Is Unmissable- Watch THROWBACK Video
After facing their fair share of hardships, the couple finally tied the knot with each other in 1991. They embraced their first parenthood with son Aaryan Khan in 1997 and went on to have two more adorable kids Suhana and AbRam.

The Netflix movie will also star Agastya Nanda, Khushi Kapoor, Mihir Ahuja, Dot, Vedang Raina and Yuvraj Menda in lead roles.
