Our Mannat Laid Foundation For Gauri’s Designing Career Says Shahrukh Khan
Mumbai, 16th May 2023 (Newshelpline) - Superstar Shah Rukh Khan, who ranks amongst the richest actors across the globe, but our beloved star didn’t had any money to furnish his landmark house Mannat, and his wife Gauri Khan had to turn designer to decorate the house, hence laying the foundation for her designing carrer.
Shah Rukh Khan was interacting with the media during the My Life In Design book launch, by Gauri Khan.
Sharing an interesting story behind their house Mannat and how Gauri Khan entered the world of designing, Shahrukh said, “When we bought Mannat, it was way beyond our means, and once we were done buying the house, we didn’t have money to decorate it. We even once hired a designer, only to realize he couldn’t afford him”
“So, I turned to Gauri, as she had little artistic talent, so I asked her to be the designer for our house. So actually Mannat started like that, and over time, we earned and kept buying little stuff for the house. We even once went to South Africa to buy leathers for the sofa, and I think that training ground got her into designing” added Shahrkh Khan.
The book, My Life in Design by Gauri Khan, charts out her journey as a designer with exclusive pictures of her and her family-Shah Rukh, Aryan, Suhana and AbRam. Unseen images of her Mumbai residence, Mannat, and the design thought-processes that went into it as well as other key projects are part of the book as well.
