In Sach Ka Saamna, Nigar Khan opened herself to the audience and was brave enough to share some truths in her life. She said that she had an inferiority complex about herself with regards to her complexion and was uncomfortable with Gauhar being more successful than her. She said that she had adopted highhanded measures against junior artistes and that she had sabotaged a co-actor’s career. Nigaar Khan also added that she was involved in a one night stand and was propositioned for casting couch. When asked if she had compromised to further her career, her sister in the show, pressed the buzzer button, which implied that the question couldn’t be asked on the show. She also said that she has resorted to cosmetic surgery, but that it was not invasive but a process by which fat was reduced from her cheeks, as she was quite chubby on the face.
Nigaar Khan prefers to keep her personal life private as against Gauhar who has been quite about her equation with boyfriend Kushal Tandon. Nigaar Khan is dating a Pakistani model based in Dubai. According to sources, they were introduced to each other through their cousins in 2013; and their relationship has become stronger ever since. Nigaar says, “ All I can say is that I fondly call him Saru. I am in love but he does not belong to the industry and has no qualms about dating an actress. I can say he is a nice guy. He has to propose marriage, first though; if we want to get married.” Nigaar adds, “After getting married, in some time, I will bid goodbye to the industry and probably settle in Dubai.”
Equation with Gauhar Khan
The 5 feet 7 inc tall Nigaar says that both Gauhar and she are friends first, and sisters later. So, even if they have an argument, they ensure that they talk over it before they retire to bed in the night. Nigaar is 3 years older than Gauhar who is 32 years old.
Crush on Salman Khan
Nigaar Khan has been quite vocal about having a crush on Salman. She remembers pulling the hair of her fellow-student, back in her childhood when she found her praising her crush. Two things have not changed in the past 25 years – Salman Khan’s superstar status and Nigaar Khan’s crush quotient.
