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.
