Goa is a hot tourist destination and for all the right reasons. It has sun, beach and most importantly, good food. Authentic Goan food attracts tourists from across the world. After all, it's spunky, has got personality and is addictive. Not only us but actress Gauahar Khan is equally in love with the Goan cuisine. How do we know? Gauahar's husband Zaid Darbar has spilled the beans on his Instagram Stories. According to the choreographer, the actress is a “happy soul” around traditional Goan food. In the snap, Gauahar can be seen happily posing with two delicious-looking platters of food. One of the platters sported what looked like juicy chicken wings. Next to it was a dish, presumably fried fish with a side of salad and french fries. The meal looked every bit tasty.
This is not it, Gauahar Khan, on her Instagram Stories, revealed the reason behind her fondness for the Goan cuisine. We bet you didn't know this. Re-sharing husband Zaid Darbar's post on her Instagram Stories, Gauahar asked fans, “Did you know that I'm Goanese from my mom's side?”
