After it was first reported that Gauahar Khan was 12 years older than Zaid Darbar, they were mocked. She admitted that she was furious when the first bogus stories arrived, but that he calmed her down.
During an appearance, on By Invite Only. Zaid said that he followed Gauahar’s lead when it came to dealing with trolls. She added that there were times when she really wanted to ‘blast someone’ but he advised her to let it go.
Gauahar said that she saw headlines that claimed that she was 12 years Zaid’s senior. “Wikipedia has some wrong information. Mine also, his also. Like, there is this movie on my Wikipedia page, Miss India-something, I don’t know anything about that film. The same way, his birth year was written wrong,” she said
“I was like, ‘Why do you have this wrong age on your Wiki? It’s all your fault’ blah blah,” she said. “He was like, ‘Calm down. Does it change the fact that I am younger than you? No matter how many years it is. Why are you getting so affected?’ I was like, ‘Because the number is wrong.’ He calmed me down and said, ‘Gauahar, I am younger than you, I don’t have any problem being 20 years younger than you. That’s another thing that I am only six years younger than you. It’s okay, don’t get affected.’ That’s when I said, ‘Chuck it.”
Gauahar and Zaid married in December, only five months after he first spotted her at a shop. Later, he slipped into her Instagram DMs.
