Gauri, 45, who owns a home decor line of her own, said not only her husband but her three kids -Aryan, Suhana and Abram- are equally encouraging.
“Shah Rukh is very supportive of my work. Not only him but my kids also support me. They do come to my store, look into every piece that I have designed and I am doing. They are very involved and totally support me,” Gauri said at the launch of her new collection of sarees for design label Satya Paul.
Titled ‘Cocktails and Dreams’, the collection is inspired by some of the most iconic drinks. The vibrant line includes casual and occasional wear separates like sheer tunics, dresses and fluid sarees.
Gauri said she loves designing sarees as for her it is something she feels most comfortable in.
“Be it a movie premiere or an event, I personally prefer to wear a lot of saree. For me they are very comfortable I can carry them off. They are very feminine. I am designing sarees for Satya Paul and as a designer I feel I should promote sarees,” Gauri said at the launch.
“I was an arts student. I did graphic design. Being an artist, I did a lot of paintings. I have always had that creative side to me. When I started building my home in Mumbai, I was working with the architect very closely. I realised I was very inclined and interested in designing and learned a lot from him. That’s when it all began. I felt very passionate about it and now it has been around four years,” Gauri said.
