Bollywood power couple Gauri and Shah Rukh Khan recently partnered with Airbnb to welcome people inside their homes through a contest. The winner along with one guest will get to stay at the Khan’s lovely home nestled in the South Delhi neighbourhood of Panchsheel Park. The package includes a one-night stay on February 13, 2021. A renowned name in the interior designer world, Gauri Khan, who designs the homes of celebrities all over the world, has also redesigned her New Delhi house for Airbnb. In homage to Shah Rukh’s signature pose from over 30 years of Bollywood superstardom, the “Home with Open Arms” campaign will give residents of India a chance to stay in the Khan family’s genteel home. Shah Rukh Khan also took to Instagram to announce the news and wrote, “With so many memories of our early days in Delhi, the city holds a very special place in our hearts. @gaurikhan has redesigned our Delhi house and filled it with love and moments of nostalgia. Here’s a chance for you to be our guest with @airbnb (sic).”
In order to enter the contest, one has to fill an application and explain in less than 100 words, what a perfect “Open Arm Welcome” means to them. The question is a homage to Shah Rukh Khan’s signature open arms pose. To apply for this unprecedented opportunity, Airbnb invites guests to share what an “open arms welcome” means to them by 30th November 2020. A winner will be selected by a selection committee including Airbnb and Gauri Khan and will be announced on 15th December 2020. The experience will include a festive dinner of the family’s favourite dishes and movie marathon of Shah Rukh’s most notable and favourite films. Guests will also be handed personalised keepsakes from the family. This one-of-a-kind experience will give the lucky winner and the guest a chance to spend the night in the power couple’s home and enjoy the hospitality. The house has been personally designed by Gauri Khan and also has a personalised experience for the guests.
