Gauhar, 32, is not new to the world of reality shows having participated in shows like 'Khan Sisters' and 'Jhalak Dikhla Jaa'. The "Ishaqzaade" actress said she is taking "Bigg Boss" as a challenge and wants to prove herself.
"If people think that I would be nasty on the show then they are highly mistaken. I am outspoken and upfront but that doesn't mean that I will be involved in cheap stunts to get attention. I am a straight person and wish I knew some strategies to win the game. I am not expecting anything and excited to face the new challenge," Gauhar told PTI in an interview before entering the show.
The new season of celebrity reality show, being hosted by superstar Salman Khan for the fourth time, has contestants from all spheres of showbiz be it actor couple Apoorva and Shilpa Agnihotri, VJ Andy, "Neal n Nikki" star Tanisha Mukherjee or Anita Advani, alleged live-in partner of late actor Rajesh Khanna and Swedish actress Elli Avaram. Around 75 cameras have been fixed in the house; divided into hell and heaven segment, to capture the day-to-day activities of 14 contestants as they remained holed up for three months in the house.
The 'Zangoora' queen feels that the 'hell and heaven' concept this time would be tough. "I am a reality show buff and an ardent viewer of 'Bigg Boss'. I feel Salman bhai is going to make this season tough with this new concept of hell and heaven. But I am ready for it. This show is the best way to connect with your fans as they will know you in and out," she said.
On small screen, Gauhar has preferred reality shows over daily soap. Asked the reason behind it, the actress said, "I have never had any fascination towards the acting medium of TV. They are very restricted towards the content and the look. There is no scope for anything new in it." The show, which began yesterday will be aired everyday on Colors.
