Actor Gaurav Khanna who has been part of TV shows such as Kumkum and Yeh Pyar Na Hoga Kam, seems to have come a long way and has become immune to competition around him. He’s not bothered by an array of new shows, and fresh faces being launched on small screen. In fact, he enjoys working with newcomers and fresh talent as “they bring a lot of new things to the table.”
“I think healthy competition always gets the best out of you. I believe in competing with myself. Only then I can perform better than yesterday,” says Gaurav. He has worked with a lot of newcomers in the past and appreciates their vigour. “They’ve a zeal to work hard and have this magnetic excitement. I feel their passion for working is infectious,” he adds.
Having done fiction shows for so many years, Gaurav is now doing a fantasy show and is keen on trying hands at more of non-fiction shows. “I would love to do reality shows, be it dance or an action-packed show. All my life, I’ve always wanted to become a TV host but that dream is yet to materialise,” he says.
Gaurav is also open to the idea of acting in films. “I’ve never planned things in my career. I came to Mumbai for MBA and started working as a marketing manager, then modelling, ads and TV happened. So if good film offers come my way, I’d love to take it up,” he adds.
