Speaking to Time Out with Ankit, Chunky talked about SRK and said, “I think one of his first friends in Bombay when he arrived was my younger brother Chikki. They're still the best of friends. So, at that time, they (Shah Rukh and Gauri) were renting a place and they used to come to meet my brother, sab baith ke video cassettes dekhte the. So he and Gauri were in my house quite often.”

He added, “With Shah Rukh, I was so sure this boy was going to become a superstar. Because he had that in him, you can see that fire…He's always had that. That talent has always been there with him before he became the superstar. So he's very confident and he knows where he is going. I mean, yeah, of course very proud that I've known him since then. He hasn't changed.”

On season 1 of the Netflix reality show Fabulous Lives of Bollywood Wives, Shah Rukh himself acknowledged the immense support Chunky and his wife Bhavana provided during his early struggles in Bollywood. The bond extends beyond just the two actors.  Their daughters, Ananya Panday (Chunky's daughter) and Suhana Khan (Shah Rukh's daughter) have followed in their fathers' footsteps, embarking on their acting careers.

Interestingly, Ananya and Suhana are best friends. Speaking to Filmfare, Ananya highlighted the significant role Shah Rukh has played in her life.  Having spent a considerable amount of her childhood around him, she considers him a "second dad."  This heartwarming dynamic extends to their mothers as well, with Gauri and Bhavana also being close friends.
