Model-turnedac­torGaua­har Khan (left) en­joys the fan base she has gained through re­al­ity shows as such projects help her con­nect with her fol­low­ers. Gaua­har, who has par­tic­i­pated in var­i­ous dance re­al­ity and stunt-based re­al­ity shows in the past, is now gear­ing for a new re­al­ity se­ries. “Through re­al­ity shows, I can con­nect with my fans di­rectly. They get to see me as Gaua­har Khan and not as some char­ac­ter. That is why I love do­ing non­fic­tion shows. I don’t think any­one has tapped the re­al­ity in­dus­try like me. It is my work and I re­spect it,” she says.

She has been as­so­ci­ated with TV for the past many years, but feels bad that in In­dia, the medium is not given the same im­por­tance that it en­joys over­seas.

“I don’t un­der­stand why ev­ery­body looks down upon tele­vi­sion. It is the most re­spected in­dus­try world­wide, but I don’t know why it is un­der­es­ti­mated in In­dia,” she says. On the films front, Gaua­har has just shot a fun item song for an up­com­ing film that stars Tusshar Kapoor and Aftab Shiv­dasani. “I’ve just fin­ished the song and I’m very ex­cited about that. It will re­lease soon,” she said.
