Making a comeback on the daily soap circuit with Yeh Kahan Aa Gaye Hum, Karan gets candid with us
He is brash, funny and likes to play it cool. Actor Karan Kundra who after a spell of judging and hosting shows is back on a daily soap, Yeh Kahan Aa Gaye Hum, as a rockstar. Bollywoodlife spoke exclusively to the dashing actor, who’s show will go on air from tonight..
Tell us a bit about your character Rahul Sabharwal? Have you modelled the character on anyone?
Well, he is basically a nice guy. When we say, a rockstar, we instantly associate the image with drugs, bad behaviour, alcohol and rave parties. This guy he performs on stage, pretends to be a dude and then comes home to have dinner with his mom. I never model my characters on anyone as it doesn’t work for me and I feel it robs the individuality.
How did you prepare for the role?
It is a young love story. Right now, we have a number of mature love stories on television but this has a very youthful vibe. We worked a lot on the look. It’s Ekta (Kapoor) Maám’s show and it’s a new channel, I feel we are bang on.
Who has styled you for the show?
I styled myself. Obviously, there were a lot of inputs from Ekta and Imran, our creative head. I was in Hong Kong shooting for Life Mein Ek Baar and spent two days shopping there. All the stuff is from abroad.
You have been hosting shows after Kitni Mohabbat Hai season 2. How does it feel to be back on a daily show?
It is very hectic. The only difference is the comfort level. It is the same production house, director and team with whom I made my debut.
You have been experimenting a lot in your career. Is it a conscious decision?
No...It is not a conscious decision per se. My funda is that I can’t get bored. I do what excites me. Once I’m bored, I mess up things.
Your recent Twitter chat with Vikas Gupta of Bad Company where your ‘sexy’ side was revealed made news. Do you enjoy a ‘bad boy’image?
Hahaha...Well, everyone has a sex life. People do make out. We are living in 2015 yaar. I don’t I said anything wrong. I feel a man must appreciate his girl even after the act is done and take care of her. It’s good if people have heard me. One must be nice (smiles).
There was a rumour that Kritika (Kamra) is also going to be a part of Yeh Kahan Aa Gaye Hum.
If tomorrow Kritika gets married and has kids, I won’t be surprised if people say they resemble me (laughs out loud). This is how strong our connection is for our fans. Kritika and I know we are joined for life by them who want to see us together onscreen again.
Which is your favourite show on TV?
I don’t watch TV at all. I hardly get time with my judging, hosting and other assignments
Have you been following Priyanka Chopra’s Quantico?
I follow Priyanka in whatever she does (laughs). I think she’s fabulous. I am a huge fan of her.
