Gauri, who is an interior designer by profession, revealed on the chat show that people are often not willing to hire her for the project because of all the attention she brings along being a wife of the number one movie star of the country.
Gauri said, “When considering a new project, there are some people who consider me as a designer. But there are also times when it does not work out that way.”
She explained, “Sometimes people do not want to get attached to the baggage of working with Shah Rukh Khan’s wife. It works against me 50% of the time.”
