A successful ramp model, a good dancer who recently proved her mettle in the dance show, ‘Jhalak Dikhla Ja’, Gauhar Khan has been signed by Yashraj Films for the movie Rocket Singh - Salesman Of The Year.
There were speculations about the lady bagging a big project, but the model-turned-actress denied such rumours. Now, reports say that she is doing the film ‘Rocket Singh’ opposite Ranbir Kapoor. The actress has previously worked in a flop film ‘Miss India: The Mystery’ in 2003, and also made a guest appearance in Aan - Men At Work, another flop.
Gauhar hogged the limelight when she became Miss India-Earth 2002. But she chose to be a ramp model rather than an actress because of lack of good projects. But after her dancing jalwa in the second season of ‘Jhalak Dikhla Ja’, she became popular, and projects came pouring in. She says that doing movies is her career priority now.
She was also featured in the video ‘Hawa Main Udta Jaye’ by Bombay Vikings which was a smash hit. Opportunities knocked at her door late but the young actress is happy to get a Yashraj flick. And recently on the sets of ‘Rocket Singh’, she got a bit scared because of her co-star Ranbir Kapoor who is an incorrigible prankster.
‘Rocket Singh’ will be her first major film. But what’s her role in the film is not yet known. The movie also stars another newbie Shazahn Padamsee , daughter of Alyque Padamsee and Sharon Prabhakar.
