IPL 2024 fans went berserk seeing the adorable moments between Shah Rukh Khan and Gauri Khan after the Kolkata Knight Riders team lifted the trophy. King Khan gave a kiss to her after the team hit the winning runs. Now, an old video has come where Gauri Khan has spoken about why she did not convert to Islam after her wedding with the superstar. Shah Rukh Khan and Gauri Khan got married when they were quite young. Her family did not approve of the marriage for two main reasons. One of them was the difference of religion, and the other was his unstable choice of profession. 

The lady was on Koffee With Karan where she said that their son Aryan literally idolizes his father, and would identify himself as a Muslim. This was the first season of Karan Johar’s hit show. Gauri Khan said that her mother would react with slight shock whenever she would hear Aryan say he is a Muslim but slowly got adjusted to the multi-religious identity of her grandchildren.

It is a known fact that Shah Rukh Khan is a secular actor. From having Ganpati celebrations at home to doing Umrah and visiting Maa Vaishno Devi Temple in Jammu, he just believes in divine grace. Gauri Khan said she never thought of changing her faith when she married him. She said she respects Islam but she would not convert. Gauri Khan said she does not believe in that ideology as faith is an individual thing. She said Shah Rukh Khan respected her stance on the matter. 

On a TV show, Shah Rukh Khan said that they do not identify as Hindu and Muslim at home. He said his daughter had brought home a form from school, which asked for religious identity. He said he wrote that we are Indians first. 

The actor is seen as one of the role models of secularism in India.
