Gauri Khan dodges question on driver’s arrest
NEW DELHI: Superstar Shah Rukh Khan’s wife Gauri refused to answer questions Sunday about her family’s driver being arrested for allegedly raping a minor maid.
The 43-year-old producer-interior designer along with her son Aryan and daughter Suhana, was in the
Indian capital to inaugurate a bakery shop ‘The Brown Box’ of her cousin Priyanka Tiwari.
This was Gauri’s first public appearance since the case came to light.
“I will not answer any personal questions. I am here for my sister’s bakery launch and will only speak about that. I am here to bless her and share her joy with her as it was her dream to open her own bakery store one day and I am happy to be a part of the day,” she told reporters here.
“If I will talk about my own things then the focus would be shifted from her (Priyanka). And I don’t want that to happen,” the mother of three said.
Dressed in blue denims teamed with a white top, Gauri said it has always been a bliss to visit her hometown.
“I am from Delhi and I spent all my childhood and teenage here. It feels great to be here as my parents are in Delhi,” she said.
On June 25, Mumbai police arrested Shah Rukh’s driver for allegedly raping the minor girl, who worked as a help at a former actress’ house.
