How Gauahar Khan connects with fans
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.
