"it is very easy for people to make it news."
It was in November 2020 that Bigg Boss 7 winner Gauhar Khan announced her engagement to much younger Zaid Darbar.
The couple met through a TikTok collaboration video.
Following the meeting, the two became close and their relationship blossomed to something more as the couple has announced their wedding plans.
Gauhar’s long-term boyfriend Zaid the son of Indian singer and composer Ismail Darbar.
Ever since the announcement of the engagement, the couple’s social media handles have been a replica of their romance.
Gauhar Khan’s fans are living for the cuteness.
However, as is cliched by Indian society, there have been numerous speculations on the vast age difference between the couple.
Zaid is thought to be 12 years younger than Gauhar.
However, in an interview, the actress denounced these reports, saying:
“Let me clear this, the age difference that has come out is wrong. Twelve years is wrong, and it is very easy for people to make it news.
“But it is wrong. Yes, he is a few years younger to me but 12 is not the number.
“He is way more mature than I am and he has brought a sense of balance in my life.
“Judging and passing comments that the age gap can act as a barrier in a relationship is very easy.
“Zaid and I have a similar kind of understanding and maturity. So, age never matters or hinders in our relationship.”
On the other hand, Zaid stated that they both are mature on an equal level. He said:
“No, I feel we both are mature. We are equal in those terms.
“There are a few things which she makes me understand. We both balance each other.”
On December 1, 2020, Gauhar Khan once again took to Instagram to reveal her wedding plans.
In a post on Instagram, the diva shared loved-up photos of herself and her man as she announced a Christmas wedding date.
Considering the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, Gauhar said that the wedding festivities will be carried out within the family in an intimate ceremony.
She posted: “The year 2020 has been anything but ordinary and our love story through it all has been nothing short of extraordinary!
“It gives us immense joy to announce that we are tying the knot and embarking on a journey of forever.
“Keeping the current scenario in mind, we will be celebrating the big day with our family in an intimate ceremony.
“We seek your blessings and love and are eternally grateful for the constant support and the outpour of warm wishes we have received.
“We hope for every soul to find its mate and pray for every heart to find it’s reason to beat.”
