Actor Gauahar Khan, who ­started dating TV actor Kushal Tandon ­during their stint in reality show Bigg Boss 7, says that their relationship has grown stronger ever since the show got over.
"Bahut log the jinho ne kaha tha ki humara ­relationship jaldi hi khatam ho jayega ya sirf TRP ke liye hai. But the fact is that Kushal is just as wonderful in the outside world as he was while we were in the house. Kuch toh log kahange, logo ka kaam hai kehna. The fact remains that we are a ­support system for each other. Bigg Boss gave me Kushal and I can’t be happier," says Gauahar, who is gearing up for her debut as a leading lady opposite actor Rajeev Khandelwal in ­filmmaker Rajeev Jhaveri’s film, Fever.
Interestingly, the two love birds will soon be seen together for the upcoming season of an adventure-based reality show, Khatron Ke Khiladi. Ask her about the same and she says, "This show is completely different from Bigg Boss. I have achieved exactly what I came here to achieve which was to overcome my fear. I am a bag of fears. I have every fear ­possible including fear of height and fear of water. I am doing the stunts for myself and no one else," says Gauahar, adding, "May be I would not have done the show if Kushal was not there."
Lastly, when asked about her reaction on seeing actor Ajaz Khan, who had a public spat with Kushal and her ­during Bigg Boss 7, come as a wild card entry on Khatron Ke Khiladi, she says, "He got his five seconds of fame by claiming that Kushal quit the show seeing him. God bless him. But the fact is that he doesn’t exist for me. He is just milking ­publicity in our name."
