His comments came after Gauri said: “Right now, I am very busy. My hands are full and whenever I will have time then, 100 per cent I will do it.”

The husband and wife were interacting with the media on Monday at the inauguration of “Sanchos” — a Mexican restaurant designed by Gauri.

“I just go to whichever restaurant she opens because I get free meal, so it’s really good for me… I hope she keeps opening up new restaurants so that all of us can keep coming here to do parties,” said Shah Rukh, who is gearing up for the release of his film “Zero” on December 21.

Apart from designing restaurants and office spaces, Gauri has also designed the homes of Bollywood celebrities like Ranbir Kapoor, Varun Dhawan, Sidharth Malhotra, Karan Johar and Jacqueline Fernandez among many others.

Gauri said: “This restaurant is special because apart from the food… indoor and outdoor vibe of this space is going to be very warm and inviting. In Mumbai, people love to be in outdoors more than just staying there in their homes and stuff so, I think this place is just to relax.

Harshdeep to perform at Deepika-Ranveer wedding

Milan– Singer Harshdeep Kaur’s soulful voice will lend musical magic to the wedding festivities of actors Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh in Italy.

A group of musicians, including the popular Sufi singer Harshdeep and Sanjoy Das, have reached the venue to perform at the celebrations, set to take place in the picturesque Lake Como.

“We have reached Milan for a very special occasion of Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh. I am performing with Harshdeep Kaur along with Bobby Pathak and Firoz Khan,” Sanjoy wrote on Twitter on Tuesday.

Sanjoy later deleted it as the celebrations are being kept as private as possible.

Harshdeep, known for songs like “Heer” and “Dilbaro”, gave a subtle hint to fans by posting a picture from a flight. She captioned it: “Off to a very special place for even more special occasion. Arrivederci?”

Deepika and Ranveer, whose on-screen chemistry in films like “Goliyon Ki Raasleela: Ram-Leela” and “Bajirao Mastani” has been loved as much as their off-screen camaraderie, will tie the knot over two days of ceremonies on November 14-15.

According to Ranveer’s stylist Nitasha, the couple is “love personified”.

“No pictures but it was love personified to see them together today. Couldn’t stop my tears, but these were tears of happiness and so I hope they never do,” she tweeted on Monday.

The couple has been dating each other for six years but never confirmed their relationship until recently. They put rest to months of speculation about their nuptials with a social media announcement of their wedding dates.

After their very private wedding ceremonies, the two stars will have a reception each in Bengaluru and Mumbai on November 21 and 28 respectively.

They have urged their guests to direct gifts in the form of a donation to The Live Love Laugh Foundation, which works towards spreading awareness on mental health. (IANS)
