- Punit Malhotra has recently directed SRK, Gauri for an advert
However, Gauri initially appeared apprehensive on sets but soon became comfortable with the presence of known faces around with particularly Shah Rukh helping her with the shots, said Punit. "Before Gauri ma'am faced the camera, Shah Rukh sir would run her through the shot. During her shots, he would sit somewhere close and give her cues. I wanted to capture the chemistry of a husband and wife, who have been married for years. It's sweet how they know each other's habits like the back of their hand," he told mid-day.
Celebrity home designer Gauri and her superstar husband Shah Rukh are the brand ambassadors of D'decor - a home decor label - and the new advert is reportedly for the brand's latest campaign. Punit signed the project as part of Team Dharma Productions - Dharma 2.0 is the creative branch of the production firm which assigns in-house filmmakers to direct adverts and campaigns. Punit joined the Dharma family in 2001, when he assisted Karan in Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham. Punit's resume as a director includes two films I Hate Luv Storys and Gori Tere Pyaar Mein, both produced by Dharma Productions.
Shah Rukh Khan is currently awaiting the release of Jab Harry Met Sejal, his third film with Anushka Sharma, which is scheduled for August 4. Gauri Khan has helped Ranbir Kapoor and Karan Johar redecorate their homes and is also working with Varun Dhawan's mother to design the actor's new apartment. Gauri is also looking forward to the opening of her interior decoration studio Gauri Khan Designs.
