LIVE INTERVIEW KARAN MEHRA
Mypencildotcom: How did your journey begin?
Karan: When I was 20 years old, my college teachers and friends suggested me that I try something in the field of acting and even I had interest in this field. So, in 2004 I came to Mumbai and from past 17 to 18 years, I have been working in this field.
Mypencildotcom: How was your experience behind the camera?
Karan: In the initial four years when I was working behind the camera, I got exposure as a cameraperson, designer and many other things. I was interested to learn new things and explore myself. I had work with Bachchan sir, Jimmy Shergill, Yuvraj Singh and many other personalities. Then, I got a chance to work as a Naitik in Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai.
Mypencildotcom: Who is your favorite co-star?
Karan: There are many co-actors with whom I enjoyed a lot such as my friend Aayush who played the role of Mohit and Medha ji, who played the role of Bhabhi ma. Toral is a very good and professional actor and Mahima is also very great, nowdays she is doing Bollywood movies. There are many with whom I enjoy working.
Mypencildotcom: What kind of characters you’re more interested in?
Karan: I wanted to play the role of a villain. Actually, I want to try different types of roles which I didn’t play usually. In my upcoming projects, I’m playing very different roles and I’m sure audience will love it. As a versatile actor, we should try everything.
Mypencildotcom: Your latest song ‘Ghungroo Toot Gaye’ and ‘Mulakaatein’ has been released recently, so please tell us something about that.
Karan: My character was entirely different in both songs. Ghungroo is a melodious song which is sung by Javed Ali. My look was very different as I played the role of a matured guy who gone abroad and didn’t came back. I remember we did it’s shooting in Surat. On the other hand, Mulakatein was very different and we did it’s shooting in one day.
Mypencildotcom: If you wouldn’t have been an actor, then what would be your second career option?
Karan: If I wouldn’t have been an actor, then I would have been a fashion designer because it is also one of the things which I love doing. I did my course in it and I was the topper of my college.
