Shah Rukh Khan and Gauri Khan have officially become Airbnb hosts by offering a once in a lifetime stay in their Delhi home. In homage to Shah Rukh’s signature pose from over 30 years of Bollywood superstardom, the “Home with Open Arms” campaign will give residents of India a chance to stay in the Khan family’s home.
Located in the leafy neighborhood of Panchsheel Park in South Delhi, the Khan’s home is exquisitely designed by Gauri. Though the couple now reside in Mumbai, their Delhi home remains a special place of deep nostalgia and they continue to use the property when visiting the capital city. Filled with personal keepsakes and mementos from their many travels around the world, the Khan home is a reflection of Shah Rukh and Gauri’s journey together, first as a couple, then as a family.
Photographs and knick-knacks line a wall in the master bedroom - son Aryan’s first badminton racket; daughter Suhana’s make-up brushes and the butterflies she collected; son AbRam’s first birthday gift of an exquisite silver mirror and comb; original negatives of Shah Rukh Khan’s favorite film. Another wall is adorned with the handmade cards exchanged by Shah Rukh and Gauri during their early days of courtship. It is these personal touches, more than anything, that make this house such a welcoming place to call home.
The “Home with Open Arms” campaign will offer guests the rare opportunity to relive the nostalgia of Bollywood’s star couple. Launching on November 18, residents of India can apply for a chance to win the overnight stay which will take place on February 13, 2021. The winning duo will experience a curated itinerary developed by Gauri, enjoy a lavish meal at home filled with the Khan’s favorite foods, revel in a movie marathon of Shah Rukh Khan’s favorite films and his biggest box office hits, and receive personalized keepsakes from the family as souvenirs to take home.
