FORGET HARSHAD,EVEN MR BACHCHAN WILL NOT MAKE ME INSECURE!
Telly hottie Karanvir Bohra on why bads good for him,competition doesnt matter and his B-Town plans
He is the new bad guy on small screen ruling the negative actors space and by his own admission,the angry young man of television. Karanvir Bohra says hes loving every moment of being the bad guy Viraj Dobriyal in Dil Se Di DuaSaubhagyavati Bhav,and the fame that has come with it.Karanvir who catapulted to fame first as Prem/Yudi in Kasautii Zindagi Kay was in town with wife,Teejay Sidhu.AT caught up with him over a sandwich and pasta lunch.
Karanvir seems to revel in the popularity of his newly acquired screen character.He says,I am doing this show after a short hiatus.When I came across the concept,I wanted to do it because of the challenge it offered to me as an actor.It is good when people recognize you.When I go out people say dekho Viraj hai woh!
Karanvir,who did a cameo in Kismat Konnection,will now romance Pakistani beauty Veena Malik in an upcoming Hindi film.As someone whos straddling both the small and the big screen,Karanvir says,When you are shooting a film,you can two shots in a day and have enough time to relax.TV actors have to do many shots in a day with long schedules and often without breaks. Does he feel his big screen offer came too late He says,I wanted to be experienced enough before I did something big.After having put in some years as an actor,I now feel more confident.
Karanvir who will now have to share prime time space with heartthrob Harshad Chopra whos making an entry in the show,claims hes not bothered.Recently Karanvir reportedly said hed not be bothered even if Amitabh Bachchan entered the show.He shrugs nonchalantly and says,I just gave an example,saying no one,not even a legend like Amitabh Bachchan would make me insecure.If I get a chance to act with Mr Bachchan,Ill take it up as a challenge.Harshads entry will not make a difference to me.In fact,it will only add to the show because he has his own fan base.
What about Veena Malik and the controversies surrounding her Thats her way of getting peoples attention.For me shes just a co-star.
The actor also plans to participate in reality shows,Id love to judge a dance reality show as I have learnt Kathak,tap and jazz.I am not keen to do a Bigg Boss kind of show,although I have been offered the show every year.I dont want to be known as a reality show star.Id rather be known as an actor.
A frequent visitor to the city,he says,I have been coming to Ahmedabad ever since I was a child.Every time I come to this city,I throw coins in Sabarmati.This is the first time Teejay is accompanying me and I will make it a point to take her to the river front.
