Bollywood icon Shah Rukh Khan and his wife, interior designer and producer Gauri Khan, have officially become Airbnb hosts and will be offering a once in a lifetime stay in their New Delhi home.
Lucky guests will get to stay in the Khans’ exquisitely designed home, experiencing a curated itinerary developed by Gauri herself.
You’ll be able to enjoy a lavish meal filled with the Khans’ favourite foods, revel in a movie marathon of Shah Rukh Khan’s biggest box office hits, and receive personalised keepsakes from the family as souvenirs to take home.
And because it’s the home of King Khan, you’ll be treated like a star on your stay, being picked up from the airport in a luxury car which will also drive you around on the duration of the trip.
Anyone keen to get booking will need to enter a competition, themed after Shah Rukh’s signature open arms pose (think DDLJ, K3G, and literally every other film he’s in).
In homage to the pose, the Open Arms campaign asks potential guests what an ‘open arms welcome’ means to them.
Due to travel restrictions, the competition is only available to those based in India, so commiserations to those who were hoping to enter right away.
Located in the leafy neighbourhood of Panchsheel Park in South Delhi, the Khans’ home is designed by Gauri.
Though the power couple now resides in Mumbai, their Delhi home remains a place of nostalgia as they raised their three children there and continue to use the property when visiting the city.
Filled with personal keepsakes and mementos from their many travels around the world, the Khan home is marked by bold hues, an abundance of natural light, and an impressive art collection.
Guests can enjoy floor-to-ceiling French doors that open into an expansive garden, as well as textured walls, and colourful tapestries.
Photographs and prized possessions also line a wall in the master bedroom including original negatives of Shah Rukh’s favourite film.
Speaking about their partnership with Airbnb, Gauri and Shah Rukh Khan said: ‘The city of Delhi holds a special place in our hearts and will always be home for us.
‘Each visit brings back cherished memories of our early days here and we are absolutely thrilled to partner with Airbnb to host guests in our Delhi home.’
The overnight stay will take place for two people on 13 February, 2021.
A winner will be chosen by a selection committee including Airbnb and Gauri Khan and will be announced on 15 December, 2020.
