Shah Rukh met Gauri at a mutual friend's party. At that time, SRK was 18 and Gauri was 14. Their first meeting was just for five minutes. They sat by the pool sipping colas. It was quite tough for shy Shah Rukh to approach Gauri and ask her for dance. However, he had a mini-heartbreak, when the beautiful girl said that she is waiting for her boyfriend. But in reality, she was waiting for her brother to pick her up. When later SRK came to know about Gauri's lie, he called her up and said, ''Mujhe bhi apna bhai samjho."
