The Chokra Jawan-actress will be soon seen as a no-nonsense quick-witted and intuitive cop.
Gauahar Khan doesn't like horsing around while working. That's why she is looks so natural portraying her reel characters. For her upcoming role of a no-nonsense quick-witted and intuitive cop in MX Player's upcoming series 'Shiksha Mandal...India's Biggest Educational Scam', the actress once again proved her mettle when she took horse riding lessons. Surprisingly, she learnt the art of riding in one day.
Talking about her newly-acquired skill, Khan said, "When the role demands something, you have to give it your all to make it look authentic; there’s no other way. So, I learnt how to ride a horse. We didn’t have much time, so I did it in one day. It takes around six months to be a confident rider, but I had to learn the basics in a day."
According to reports, Gauahar has performed quite a few stunts on her own in the show. She credits the show's action director for his patience in teaching her the skills.
"All credit goes to our action director, Salaam Sir, and his team who patiently trained me. It was pretty intense, actually, but empowering at the same time. I got a sense of achievement while playing Anuradha. The show has our blood, sweat, and tears; we’ve put in a lot of work! Our director, Afzal Sir, believed in me and believed that I am capable of doing anything. It is his belief that I didn’t want to let down," she added.
Directed by Syed Ahmad Afzal, the series also features Gulshan Devaiah and Pavan Raj Malhotra in pivotal roles. The show is themed around corruption, fraud, cheating and criminal conspiracies that affect vulnerable students in India.
