Shah Rukh Khan and Gauri, on Wednesday, announced that they have collaborated with Airbnb to rent out their home in Panchsheel Park, New Delhi. With the help of a video and a set of pictures, the couple gave their fans a tour of their house, redesigned by none other than Gauri, and revealed that a lucky duo will get a chance to be their guest through Airbnb.
Speaking about her Delhi residence, Gauri says, "Our Delhi home is almost 20 years old. As many know that I am from Delhi and have lived a major part of my life here, so I thought it would be a great idea to buy and design a home close to my mom's home. That was the idea behind it, to have all our memories under one roof. We travelled and collected so many things and memories throughout the years, with the kids, and Shah Rukh and I, and I wanted all of it under one roof. That is what my Delhi home became; it was that one place where I decided to keep all my memories. When I walk into that home, every corner that I look at, it is full of memories. From the time the kids grew to teenagers, and now that they have all grown up, so we have a 'nostalgia wall' where all their collectables and little things from their childhood are adorned."
The wall has Suhana's makeup brushes, Aryan's badminton racket, AbRam's first birthday gift, Shah Rukh's artwork, some postcards, some other things which are nearly antique that the King Khan had gifted to the love of his life. Gauri has framed them and hung them on the wall, which is her favourite corner.
When asked Gauri how she decides on the centerpiece element and what all goes on behind the scenes when designing a home, she shares, "One's home should reflect their personality. A home is where you are truly yourself. It is a place where you have family or loved ones around you, so it is critical to add that design element where the person feels comfortable. That's the most important thing while designing a home."
She also considers comfort to be the most important element in designing a home for others. She further elaborates, "The key piece would be that it depends on the clients, whether they are into lights, a comfortable sofa, or they are into a nice living room or a bar. So, I think it would all depend on the client and what their focus is and then we work around what they love."
As for that one lucky couple who will get to spend a day at the Khan's Delhi home through Airbnb collaboration, Gauri hopes to offer them "a home away from home since that is what people want when they come and live in your home."
While ending the virtual meet, Gauri says that she misses the Delhiweather, food, shawls and other memories and this year isdefinitely nota bad idea to stay in Delhi.
