New Delhi — Shah Rukh Khan’s wife Gauri June 28 refused to answer questions about her family’s driver after he was 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 capital to inaugurate The Brown Box, a bakery owned by her cousin Priyanka Tiwari.
The event marked 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,” said the mother of three.
Dressed in blue denims teamed with a white top, Gauri said it has always been blissful to visit her hometown.
“I am from Delhi and I spent all my childhood and teenage years 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’s house.
