Gauahar shared why she decided to participate in the show after rejecting it for two years. In an interview with BollywoodBubble, she shared, “In 2013, my best friend and sister sat me down and told me that if anybody is meant to do Bigg Boss then it is you because I am a hardcore Bigg Boss fan. That year the makers were very convinced to change the concept and the perception of Bigg Boss. The contestants they got were really doing well in their respective careers. There was Kushal (Tandon) who was the number one actor in the number one show, there was Kamya (Panjabi), Pratyusha (Banerjee), Tanishaa (Mukerji), Armaan Kohli, Ratan Rajput, there was Elli Avram, Sangram (Singh), (VJ) Andy, everyone was doing really well. So they (the makers) wanted to change that (the show’s content) and they did. My year changed the face of how people perceived Bigg Boss to be.”
However, over the years, the show has become synonymous with ugly fights between the contestants, which seem fabricated. Sharing her opinion on the same, Gauahar said, “To each their own. Everybody knows their journey, everybody knows what they have to do and what not. As an audience you can’t choose how your contestants are going to be, you have to figure out what you like about them.
