Will only return to TV if offered a lead role: Gauahar Khan
The actor wants to do meatier roles; be it romantic or drama, says she will take up shows which are content-driven
Actor Gauahar Khan has appeared in quite a few TV shows in the past, but now, she’s put some conditions before she makes a comeback on the tube. The 33-year-old who’s been part of reality shows such as Big Boss (Season 7, 2013), The Khan Sisters and Khatron Ke Khiladi (2014), wishes to do more meaningful roles. “Right now, the shows being offered to me are either mythological or intense soaps,” says Gauahar, adding, “They have similar stories, and no role so far has got me excited. I would love to do fictional shows, but the content needs to be good. If there’s a good intense drama or a romantic show, I will definitely take it up.” It’s not just good content that’s a prerequisite for Gauahar to do TV shows. She adds, “It has to be a lead role. I don’t think I can do any other role, and the lead characters get the strongest roles written for them.” However, the Pune-born actor, who will be soon seen in a film starring Vidya Balan, wants to still work in the TV industry. “I think I’m a TV personality. All the fame has come through my stint on small screen, and I still want to work in that space. In fact, not just TV, I want to work in every possible medium. I just want to focus on good work and then I don’t care about the rest,” says Gauahar.
