When Shah Rukh Khan bought Mannat
Shah Rukh Khan’s wife, Gauri Khan, renovated Mannat after they purchased it during his initial years in Bollywood. Shah Rukh shared at an event that they used to live in a house next to Taj, which was his director’s house. They stayed there until they were making films, as they didn’t have much money. Mannat was way beyond their budget, but they managed to buy it in a dilapidated state. They called a designer who charged more for lunch than Shah Rukh’s monthly salary. Eventually, they turned to Gauri for her artistic talent to furnish the house over time.
Today, Shah Rukh and Gauri enjoy the success of his film Jawan, which is backed by Gauri Khan under Red Chillies Entertainment.
