Ya… you must be thinking how can women in the Indian film industry, be powerful? Considering the gender bias.. and a lot of things, you know!
But, guess what, I’m not talking about that literally. In my opinion, if Bollywood actors are said to be the kings here then, at home, their wives must be calling the shots!
So, the real power rests in the hands of Bollywood’s Super Wives!
Said to be ‘The First Lady Of Bollywood’, Gauri is the wife of Bollywood king Shah Rukh Khan.
The couple got married before Shah Rukh started in films and are still going rock-solid in times of treacherous temptations.
Gauri has been a terrific support system to Shah Rukh Khan and has stood like the Rock of Gibraltar for him in all phases. Her movie connection was always linked with SRK in the means of designing costumes for his films like Baazigar, Karan Arjun to Kabhi Haa Kabhi Naa. She took charge of Khan’s production outfit, Red Chillies Entertainment, and turned producer with films like Main Hoon Na, Paheli and Om Shanti Om.
They started their dating in Udipi restaurants during their courtship period. And today Suniel Shetty and wife Mana Shetty add grace to the elite events of moviedom.
Though Mana has not partnered Suniel as a producer or designer on any of his projects, she is known for being the reason of peace and contentment in Suniel Shetty’s life.
Seema Khan, wife of actor-director Sohail Khan has an identity of her own and is not dependent on her husband when it comes to gaining recognition. Though not involved with the film industry, she has many film celebrities as her clients. That’s because she is a fashion designer who runs her own boutique in Mumbai. She also has her own designer label.
Her clientele includes brother-in-law Arbaaz Khan, sister-in-law Malaika Arora Khan, Amrita Arora, Sonali Bendre and models Tapur, Gauhar Khan, Mridula and Nina Manuel. Seema has showcased her collections at the Lakme India Fashion Week 2006 and many such eventful occasions.
Hrithik Roshan had previously confessed that he saw Suzanne Khan across a traffic light and fell in love with her. The sweet-looking girl has an Associate Art Degree course in Interior Designing.
Very few people know that Suzanne was heavily involved in the making of Kaho Naa…Pyaar Hai. For three months her own business took a backseat, as she tried to concentrate on the pre-release work.
People who know Suzanne and Hrithik say that she calls him her Bholunath, because she thinks he is too naive and sweet for this world. Ask her if Hrithik has changed in any way after success hit him headlong and she says, “He is still my sweet little boy I fell in love with. He hasn’t changed a bit.”
