Bigg Boss 14: Gauahar Khan talks about her hydrophobia, says she almost drowned once

In the Bigg Boss Xtra Masala by Voot, Gauahar Khan spoke about her near-death experience with water and her hydrophobia.


Bigg Boss 14 is becoming the breeding ground of conflicts, arguments and drama as it completes its two weeks. Amidst all the fighting and shouting with and at each other, there are several moments that are calming and peaceful for the contestants as well as the Toofani Seniors in the house. In one such incident, Gauahar Khan who is in the house as a Toofani Senior along with Hina Khan and Sidharth Shukla talks about her hydrophobia.

In the Extra Masala clips shared by Voot, the senior can be seen sitting in the garden area along with Nikki Tamboli, Jasmin Bhasin and Nishant Malkani while Rahul Vaidya was walking on the treadmill in the gym area. Gauahar was asked by one of the participants if she can swim or not to which she said that she can swim but she does not like forceful splashing on her face as she has the phobia of water. She further said that she learnt swimming before she was going for another reality show named Khatron Ke Khiladi. Gauahar also said that one of her friends taught her to swim and it just took her a day to learn swimming.

Gauahar then spoke about her near-death experience with water. She said, “I almost drowned in one of the water containers. I was totally submerged in the water when my mother found me after a few minutes.”  After this, Nishant said that he will also learn swimming after he gets out of the Bigg Boss house. He said that he joined the swimming classes but even after trying for four to five days he kept drowning. Hearing this, Rahul Vaidya also shared his trauma regarding swimming. He said, “As a child, my trainer taught me so badly that I got scared of swimming. I tore my mother’s saree out of fear.”


Gauahar Khan further went to say that “In my childhood whenever my mom took me for swimming, my trainer pushed me inside the pool and I didn’t know how to come up. I just could not come up.” The housemates further went ahead to discuss how swimming is just the combination of hands and legs and how swimming was supposed to help Gauahar fight her phobia but in return, it just enhanced it to another level.

In one of the previous episodes, Sidharth pushed Gauahar Khan in the pool along with Hina Khan. Even though Sidharth meant it as a joke, Gauahar was still shouting that she has the phobia of water and that she is terrified of water.
