Why did Shahrukh Khan change his name and get married?

Mustaq Sheikh’s book based on Shah Rukh’s life tells that Shah Rukh Khan and Gauri loved each other very much. Inter-caste marriage was not easy for both of them. When Shah Rukh Khan was about to tie the knot with Gauri as per Hindu rituals, he changed his name to ‘Jitendra Kumar Tulli’. Not only Shahrukh but his wife Gauri also had to change her name at the time of marriage as per Muslim rituals. Gauri changed her name to Ayesha.

The family opposed the marriage of Shahrukh and Gauri

Speaking on the First Ladies Show, Gauri said, “We were very young. I decided to marry a man who was going to join films and was from a different religion.” Gauri told that she named Shahrukh as Abhinav so that the parents would think that he is a Hindu.

When did Shahrukh and Gauri get married?

Shahrukh Khan had lost his heart on seeing Gauri. Both married each other on 25 October 1991. Very few people know that Shah Rukh Khan first met Gauri in 1984, when he was only 18 years old and Gauri was only 14 years old.
