Early life[edit]

Gohar's father's business almost collapsed and the family funds were seriously depleting when a family friend, Mr. Homi Master working at the time as a director for Kohinoor Films, suggested that Gohar take up acting as a career. Her parents agreed.

Career[edit]

Gohar started her career at the age of sixteen with the film Fortune and the Fools (1926) directed by Kanjibhai Rathor and the role of the hero was portrayed by Khalil and the film was produced by Kohinoor Films. The film was a Hit. Gohar along with Jagdish Pasta, Chandulal Shah, Raja Sandow and cameraman Pandurang Naik started the Shree Sound Studios. In 1929 along with Chandulal Shah she founded the Ranjit Studios which was later known as Ranjit Movietone.
