New Delhi: Rhea Pillai had made headlines last week after she was allegedly thrown out of her residence in Mumbai by her partner Leander Paes.
Things only turned worse for her after the incident. Not only was she locked out, but had five men barring her from entering her home.
Gauri Khan, wife of superstar Shah Rukh Khan, who happens to be friends with Pillai reportedly extended a helping had to the lady in distress. According to reports, Gauri reached out to Rhea immediately with her bodyguards, and escorted Pillai to the Bandra police station and thereby helping her to file a complaint.
She stepped in at the right moment and ensured Rhea`s safety. Gauri`s presence was a huge relief for the troubled lady, and reportedly Rhea even admitted that without her friend`s help it would have been very difficult to deal with the situation. Gauri has proved that a friend in need is a friend indeed.
At present Rhea is fighting against Paes for the custody of their eight-year old daughter Aiyana.
