Gauahar Khan is quite popular for calling out stereotypes on her social media and slamming against nosey questions, whether it be personal or professional. The actress opened up to Hindustan Times in a recent chat, about how she sees her reaction as an effort to spread awareness against misconceptions.

Gauahar, who is married to Zaid Darbar, has been receiving comments about her personal life too. She had recently made an Instagram reel on it. Talking about it, the actress said that she is not answering them simply because she is annoyed, but deliberately wanting to answer. She knows she is not the only one who faces this issue. 

The actress has appeared in prominent roles in the anthology series Kaali Peeli and in a music video titled as Wapis, with her husband Darbar. She has been a part of popular movies like Ishaqzaade and Badrinath Ki Dulhania and is also known for winning the Bigg Boss 7 in 2013.

The 38-year-old had put up a video against an inquisitive question she was asked about being a ‘married and a working woman’ and if she has plans to expand her family. According to her, she uploaded the video to spread the message to the ones who don't know how to deal with such situations. 

She further said that personally, she can keep all sorts of judgements or patriarchy out of her door, but every now and then, she brings the topic to help others who are putting up with similar instances. She believes in moving forward from all such norms because they don’t define her.

Further talking about her scripts, she said she likes to do it with a bit of wit. She picks something which will be light as well as impactful.
