Shah Rukh and Gauri Khan turn Airbnb hosts, to open Delhi home for guest

The stay at SRK’s Delhi home to come with luxury car for use, dinner of the family’s favourites and movie marathon of Khan’s favourite films.

Bollywood icon Shah Rukh Khan (SRK) and his interior designer wife, 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 Indians a chance to stay in the Khan family’s genteel home.

Though the star duo now reside in Mumbai, their Delhi home remains a special place of deep nostalgia as they raised their three children there and continue to use the property when visiting the capital city.

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 a silver mirror and comb; original negatives of Shah Rukh Khan’s favourite film. Another wall is adorned with the handmade cards exchanged by Shah Rukh and Gauri during their early days of courtship.
