New Delhi: Superstar Shah Rukh Khan`s wife Gauri today refused to answer questions about her family`s driver being arrested for allegedly raping a minor maid.

The 43-year-old producer-interior designer along with her son Aryan and daughter Suhana, was in the capital to inaugurate a bakery shop `The Brown Box` of her cousin Priyanka Tiwari.
This was Gauri`s first public appearance since the case came to light.

"I will not answer any personal questions. I am here for my sister`s bakery launch and will only speak about that. I am here to bless her and share her joy with her as it was her dream to open her own bakery store one day and I am happy to be a part of the day," she told reporters here.

"If I will talk about my own things then the focus would be shifted from her (Priyanka). And I don`t want that to happen," the mother of three said.

Dressed in blue denims teamed with a white top, Gauri said it has always been a bliss to visit her hometown.

"I am from Delhi and I spent all my childhood and teenage here. It feels great to be here as my parents are in Delhi," she said.
On June 25, Mumbai police arrested Shah Rukh`s driver for allegedly raping the minor girl, who worked as a help at a former actress` house.
