Gauhar and Nigaar Khan

Gauhar Khan has perhaps been the most popular and controversial housemate on Bigg Boss Season 7. However, what many people don’t know is that Gauhar has already had her tryst with reality tv. Gauhar has done a reality show with her sister Nigaar Khan called The Khan Sisters on UTV Bindaas. It was a desi home-cooked version of  ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians!” It did not get much attention and TRP’s like its American counterpart and was eventually taken off air. Here is a teaser of the show.



Recent castings of Sana Khan and Sunny Leone, who were ex-Bigg Boss contestants, have made many budding actors pine for being a part of Bigg Boss.  Sana Khan will soon be seen in Salman Khan’s next movie ‘Mental’ and Sunny Leone has already made her debut in Mahesh Bhatt’s Jism 2. Most newcomers, models and TV actors now look at Bigg Boss as a platform to get launched in films as it gives ample exposure. Some people have speculated that perhaps this is the reason why Gauhar became a part of Bigg Boss.
