Finally, India has its own version of Keeping Up with the Kardashians — a popular reality show starring American star sisters Kim, Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian. Next month onwards, UTV Bindass will air The Khan Sisters, which will give viewers a peek into the lives of glamour sisters Gauhar and Nigaar Khan. While 30-year-old model-actor Gauhar has some chartbusting Bollywood item songs to her credit, Nigaar, 32, has played the mean girl on the tube.
“The format of The Khan Sisters is something that hasn’t been explored on Indian television so far. I am extremely excited that Nigaar and I are together in it.” says Gauhar.
One of the things that she will be talking about, on the show, is her infamous wardrobe malfunction during the 2007 Lakme Fashion Week. Designer Rahul Mishra, who recently had Gauhar as his showstopper and was there when the incident took place, is also playing a part in the series. He says, “I remember I had my show the same day when the incident happened. It was very upsetting and traumatic for Gauhar who is a very close friend of mine. She kind of developed a phobia after that and it took lot of time for her to get comfortable again. I believe the incident was exaggerated a lot.”
The show will also see other celebrities coming to The Khan house, and the sisters’ family members will be involved in telling people more about the main protagonists, their similarities and their differences, and previously unshared secrets.
