Model turned actress Gauhar Khan has been hospitalized due to a serious back injury. Gauhar plays the female lead opposite Hussain Kuwajerwala in the first-ever Bollywood live musical Zangoora: The Gypsy Prince. This requires long hours of practice, late nights, and lack of sleep. Gauhar’s long stint with Zangoora, along with her hectic shoots, intense workouts and travelling has given her no time to rest.
Gauhar was performing a very difficult step for Zangoora when her back gave way. It was later diagnosed as a major sprain and required hospitalisation.
The actor plays the role of Lachi in Zangoora, billed as the biggest ongoing live musical in Asia. Gauhar’s back had been troubling her for some time, but she didn’t think it would be so serious. It is not clear as to how long she will be confined to bed.
