Before making his Bollywood debut with Deewana in 1992, Shahrukh Khan began his career in television with Fauji in 1989. Since then, the actor has climbed the stairs of his success and has appeared in countless ads. But, there’s an ad featuring the interior designer and her present wife, Gauri Khan.
While the interior designer has largely stayed away from films, but she can be seen in a television ad with Shahrukh Khan made in the 1990s.
Shah Rukh smouldered in the old, almost 40-second TV commercial, while Gauri struck some pretty poses alongside him. The clip opened with Shah Rukh looking tired after wrapping up his shoot on a set to celebrate the couple’s anniversary. After he showered using a Cinthol soap, he felt refreshed enough to marry Gauri all over again.
Shah Rukh can be seen dressed in a black tuxedo and Gauri in a blue gown as he carries her in his arms before the two make their way to marry ‘phir se (again)’. Cinthol’s jingle that goes “susti mitaye… chusti lautaye (say bye to laziness and hello to feeling fresh and active)” played in the background.
Apart from YouTube, the ad has also been shared on Reddit and left many feeling nostalgic for the early 1990s. Some took a trip down memory lane with Shah Rukh and Gauri’s ad, with one Redditor writing, “Uff so cute!” Another one recalled Shah Rukh’s journey and wrote, “From Cinthol to Vimal (a men’s clothing brand), he sure has come a long way.”
It has been almost three decades since the couples tied the knot.
