Model-turned-actress Gauahar Khan has managed to find her fan base in every section of the audience.
Whether they are the regular fans of reality TV shows like ‘Bigg Boss’,’ Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa ‘,’ Fear Factor: Khatron Ke Khiladi ‘, or making their sensational presence felt on the screen in the song’ Chokra Jawaan ‘,’ Jhallah Wallah ‘as part of the film’ Ishaqzaade ‘, or share screen space with Bollywood stars such as Ranbir Kapoor and Vidya Balan in films such as’ Rocket Singh: Salesman of the Year ‘,’ Begum Jaan ‘and recently on the web series’ Tandav ‘and his latest film ’14 Phere’ – Gauahar has done it all.
Despite Gauahar Khan mainly making headlines for her social and personal life on social media, the actress says that over time, her parameters for choosing projects, especially movies, have changed because she is now looking to explore her acting skills.
Gauahar Khan told IANS: “Honestly speaking, I don’t look at anything with regret. I don’t regret why I don’t have the role of female lead opposite Ranbir Kapoor in a Bollywood movie or why directors, producers don’t consider me for lead roles, etc. For the movies, the footage didn’t matter to me, the character did. If you look at my character in ‘Ishaqzaade’, ‘Begum Jaan’, those scenes and moments in the story were important. For me, it’s always about creating something on screen that resonates with the audience, and it did.
“To see, initially, for me, was to take every opportunity to the best of my ability because I started from scratch; I’ve been here in the entertainment business for about 19 years today. Much has changed! Really … now thanks to the OTT platform, actors like me have the opportunity to show our acting talent; Before, in the cinema, the possibilities were limited “.
Gauahar Khan began her modeling journey and was one of the 2002 contestants for the Femina Miss India beauty pageant. He continued to gain popularity with many non-fiction TV shows such as ‘The Khan Sisters’, ‘Ticket to Bollywood’, ‘India’s Raw Star’, ‘I Can Do That’ and different seasons of ‘Bigg Boss’. She was the winner of ‘Bigg Boss 7’.
“The web space is interesting to me and I am getting good offers from OTT platform programs. ‘Tandav’ was an important show for me that launched on Amazon Prime Video. I have a couple of things OTT ready and again they are all very versatile and interesting. Now my parameter when choosing a project is to collaborate with directors and storytellers who will use my potential as an actress; I want to be challenged with new and exciting roles, ”said Gauahar, who also appeared on the Hotstar sitcom special ‘The Office.’
